A card for Mother's Day

It's that time of year when I have to begin thinking of classes in which we'll be making at least one or two Mother's Day cards.  Of course that means coming up with some simple designs as well as some really WOW designs.  Today I'm sharing a simple design that is perfect for my upcoming make-n-take at a scrapbooking crop.  There's never a lot of time for all sorts of techniques, but that doesn't mean it can't look special.

I kept the colours for the card to simple blue tones and white.  My base is Pool Party with a layer of Island Indigo and then a layer of Whisper White.  I added two strips of Pool Party which I had embossed using my Big Shot and the Chevron embossing folder.  Between the two strips, I embossed a single line on the Whisper White cardstock using the Needlepoint Border embossing folder.  Then I cut a banner with rounded top corners from the Island Indigo cardstock, added a doily in Whisper White cut with the Delicate Doilies die, a floral shape in Pool Party using the Floral Frames Collection framelit, and finally, in the centre, a circle cut from Whisper White cardstock after I had stamped it in Island Indigo ink with one of the images from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set.

I think this will definitely appeal to the ladies.  But maybe I should offer it in a pink version as well.
