Mother's Day Cards


I wanted to give my Front N Back stamp kid from Art Impressions Stamps a chance to wish a happy Mother's Day. I used the Grand Madison Window die, made by Poppystamps, Inc. and I found them for sale at oozak.com on 5 x 7" Recollections cards. The Brights collection which already had a hole cut from it, were on clearance at Michaels. I just needed to cut that hole larger to work for my larger window die cut. The windows and flowers were cut using my trusty Cuttlebug. The grass was cut using my Cricut Machine with the Mickey and Friends cartridge.
