Flowers for my Mother

Pin It

Happy Thursday everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful day :)  I have a project that I made today WITHOUT my Cricut - I know, shocking, right?  I do love her...  however, Emma, over at My Creative Time, challenged us to a project without our Cricut, and I decided to take her up on that.  Here is what I came up with:

I made this gift card holder with Emma's Gift Card Holder Die, and also used her More Gift Card Sentiments Set.  Don't they co-ordinate perfectly?  I hand cut the leaves, and hand cut the flowers and rolled them.  They were so much easier than I thought, and while not perfect, I am pretty happy with how they turned out :)  I followed a video I saw on You Tube HERE.  The ribbon is from Michael's.

Here is a side view of my flowers, so you can see just how much dimension they have.  maybe I don't need one of those cartridges that makes flowers...   I chose the colors of green, white and various shapes of pink so that i could play along with Getting Cricky's Simply Sunday Challenge.

I am going to get my Mum a movie gift card, and give it to her for Mother's Day.  I think she'll love it :)  Thanks for visiting today.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, I will have a tag to show you for 52 Weeks of Tags.  See ya then!

There are so many challenges out there that my gift card could play along with, here are some of them:
My Creative Time - cricutless
Simply Sunday - green, white and one other color (shades of pinks)
My Mum's Craft Shop - mother's day
Papertake Weekly - for the girls or mum
Dream Valley - mother's day
All Sorts - say it with flowers
Craft Your Days Away - mother's day
Crafts 4 Eternity - special mum
Crafty Catz - mother's day

A la prochaine...
