One of my Mother's Day Cards

So much has been going on around here!  As some of you may know, my husband and his brother run a company that is owned by my father-in law.  Their Office Manager is going through a very difficult time right now with some health issues, and since I worked in the business before having kids, I have been filling in.  This has been a huge struggle especially since I have one child in school and one not in school.  Trying to arrange for getting my son to and from school and then getting people that can watch my youngest while I am in the office is just crazy right now!  Needless to say, I have not had much time for crafting lately, but every few days I just NEED to create something.  It keeps me sane in the midst of all the chaos.  So, I do have a few cards to share with you and this one is the one that I made for my mom for Mother's Day.

As you may know, my mom is a quilter, so I just had to use Papertrey Ink's Button Boutique stamp set.  For this card, I decided to use 3 neutral colors (Dark Chocolate, Kraft and Vintage Cream) and then one bold color (Hawaiian Shores).  I also used a previous card as a template for this one, you can see the original on THIS post.

This card is sized at 5"x7" and I used the Woodgrain Impression plate to create the texture on the Kraft panel down the middle.  Next I used some cork and the Mat Stack 5 die to cut that out.  I also added some other die cuts with a Fillable Frames on top and used the coordinating stamps to make the frame and the sentiment.  Next I took a thin piece of Balsa wood that I got at Michaels and die cut the button card and then stamped the header and the price strip on the side right on the wood.  Looks amazing!  I just love how this all came out!

I will be back soon to show you two more Mother's Day cards that I made for my MIL and my husband's sweet grandmother!
