A Mother’s Flair

Mother’s Day is right around the corner!  If you are looking for a simple crafty idea, this might be the perfect project idea for you!  I love creating cards and gift bags that coordinate. And today I want to share a simple little idea with you that Mom is sure to love! You can also use this idea to celebrate birthdays or other fun occasions! Just change out the papers and sentiments to create a coordinating gift set for any occasion.

Let’s start with the card. The card was created with some of the pretty patterned papers from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack and some Rose Red cardstock. Start with a piece of Rose Red cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-14 x 4 inch piece of Basic Black, a 2-1/4 x 5 inch piece of one of the patterns of paper from the Petal Passion DSP pack and a 1-1/2 x 5 inch piece of Rose Red cardstock embossed with the Petal Pair embossing folder. Adhere the DSP and embossed Rose Red pieces to the black cardstock. Run a piece of black shimmer ribbon across the “seam” where the DSP and Rose Red cardstock meet. Wrap the ends of the ribbon around to the back of the cardstock and adhere the entire piece to the front of your card. Then simply embellish with a fun flower and sentiment.

For the purse bag, here is what you need:

  • 5-1/2 x 6-1/4 inch piece of Black cardstock (score the 6-1/4 inch side at 4-1/4 inches).
  • Two (2) pieces of DSP cut to 5-1/4 x 4 inches
  • Cut a 1-3/4 x 5-1/4 inch piece of Rose Red Cardstock and emboss it with the Petal Pair Embossing Folder
  • Black Shimmer Ribbon
  • Pansy or other flower punch
  • 3/4 inch circle punch
  • Brown Lunch Bag
  • Tear & Tape (double sided adhesive)
