I Love You, Mom

iloveyoumom

Good morning!  I saw another opportunity for a Mother’s Day card with this week’s Waltzingmouse sketch.  The tilted panel was going to be a tag of some kind, but as I was rooting around my little supplies tray on my desk, I saw these grid bags I had purchased on Etsy a few months ago.  I love tucking a little bookmark inside these bags :)  So that’s exactly what I did!

Now I’ve used a mixture of Waltzingmouse and Verve stamps for this project.  The “I Love You” on the card comes from WMS Fancy Phrases, but the “Mom” comes from Verve’s Love Deepens!  What a match!!  I also had to trim down the Labels 5 die cut as it’s original size was too wide for the bag.  That’s all for today!  Thanks for visiting :)  Hope your day is starting out right!

Before I could even finish reading your post, my mind was scrambing trying to figure out why I hadn't seen that Mom sentiment anywhere! I needed that yesterday...you did a fabulous job on this card Maureen, love all the little details and the bookmark tucked into the envelope. Great job, I predict this is a Top Mouse card this week.

Great idea to put a bookmark tag right on the card front. And the grid bag is so cute! Perfectly sweet for Mother's Day!

Oh this card is so beautiful, Maureen! I love the purple flower and the little grid patterned bag. You are right, those sentiments are perfect together. Your pocket insert is so sweet, as is your background paper!

Maureen, that glassine bag with the grid pattern is so fun. I love how you hid the tag inside. This really is a special card for mom! So glad you joined us this week at Waltzingmouse!
