Mom, Birthday & Halloween Cards

Hi everyone! Hope your weekend was wonderful, mine was. Spent time in my craft room, which always makes me happy and my parents came for a visit! They haven't been up for a visit since July so I was very excited to have them!

Anyway on to cards. I just loved both the font and the lace cardstock used on Mom Valentine, so that was my first choice for today. Since Mother's Day is coming our way I changed it to a Mother's Day card.

Card is 4 X 7

Supplies used: cardstock - kraft, cream and white; patterned paper - sweet nothings in Lovebirds by SEI; lace paper - SEI; pink glitter cardstock - Best Creation Inc.; fonts - Mutlu Ornamental & Engravers MT


I really loved the font used in Utterly Bewitching! It is so perfect for a Halloween card. I also thought this made a very sophisticated Halloween card.

Card is 4 1/4 x 7

Supplies used: cardstock - black orange and white; patterned paper - Night Light Cauldron Swirls by My Minds Eye; border punch - Martha Stewart; black ribbon - JoAnn's; rhinestones - frosting by Glitz; fonts - Chisel, Modern No. 20 and AL Fantasy Type


Pink Flower Happy Birthday is definatly a very elegant card so I chose it to inspire me. This is what I came up with:

Card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2

Supplies used: cardstock - white; patterned paper - Keepsakes tiara by SEI and a scrap from my stash; lace trim - boutique trims by Doodlebug; rhinestone swirls - Prima; flower - prima; rub on - AlaCard - 7 Gypsies


For my last card today I picked Plum Birthday. I liked it because it was simple to make and was very elegant without having to use a lot of embellishments.

Card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2

Supplies used: cardstock - white; patterned paper - Daydreams in Le'Romantique Collection by Graphic 45 and black polka dots from Bitty Dot Collection by Papertrey Inc.; rhinestones - limeade jewels by Doodlebug; ribbon - JoAnn's; stamp - Cameo Ovations by Fiskars; sentiment - squigglefly.com


Have a super Monday everyone! I'd really love to hear your comments1

I LOVE all these cards. It would not be possible for me to pick a favorite ! The colors and the embellishments are beautiful. It comes down to a really beautiful job on everything on this site.

I enjoyed perusing the cards this morning. I really loved the Mom Valentine. It is so classic. I like how you made the background sparkle; it adds so much to the card. I love the background on the Bewitching Halloween card better; I felt their choice had a more Fall feel. Thanks for sharing! Great job!
