Happy Mother's Day!!

Mother's Day Cards with Pink Paislee Cottage Farms Line

Hello and Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mother's out there!

In this 2nd installment for the month I've made some Mother's Day Cards with the Pink Paislee Cottage Farms Line. I really love this line because it has so many of my favorite things in it like butterflies, vintagy, retro looking papers, arrows, flowers and much more. I made a total of 4 cards. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the bases all four of the cards.

In the picture below, you can see all of the products that Anna sent me for use with this project.

The first card I made, seen in the photo below, uses paper from the Cottage Farms line, one of the die cuts from the ephemera pack and one of the Burlap Flowers. I cut the card parts out of the paper using my silhouette Cameo. The base was cut from the Bushel paper, and the paper accents were cut from Bushel, Crate and Wheelbarrow. The small pieces were adhered to the card with Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue.

In the photo below I made another card using the Cottage Farms Line. The card parts were cut using my Silhouette Cameo. The parts were cut from Wheelbarrow, Bushel, Barrel, and Market. I used a die cut piece from the Cottage Farms line. The flower brad is from My Mind's Eye Market Street "Love" Brads, and the heart stamp is from my stash using Ranger Archival Ink in Black.

In the next photo is another card made using the Cottage Farms Line. I cut it using my Silhouette Cameo, using papers called Crate and Barrel. I cut the Mother's Day sentiment out of the card from the CF Line and adhered it to the front of the card, embellishing it with 2 of the die cuts from the ephemera pack. I also used an iRock to put rhinestones on the tip of the crown and on the Mother's Day sentiment.

The next photo shows the above photo opened up to show the inside of the card.
It says "Queen for the Day."

The next photo shows the last card that I made using the Cottage Farms Line. This card is the "belly band" type of card that has a string wrap to hold it closed. I used a die cut from the Cottage Farms line at the top, layering a "Mother" banner cut with my Cameo. Another die cut from the CF line was adhered at the bottom right of the card using dimensional foam. A tiny heart was stamped on both sides of the card using a heart stamp from my stash and Ranger Archival Ink in Black.

In the photo below, it shows the card in the photo above opened up so that the inside can be seen. 

I hope you have enjoyed the cards I made this month with the Pink Paislee Cottage Farms line of products. I love this line and think it was a really great line to turn into Mother's Day cards with. Everything coordinates and it was so easy and fast to make these cards. Have a great Mother's Day everyone!!!!
