Hello, everyone!!! I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday so far! Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons (PPPR) Spring Blog Hop. Today, my super talented Design Team and I are sharing all sorts of spring-themed projects we created using PPPR files. Be sure to visit each and every blog along the hop, because you won't want to miss even one amazing project. You'll also have the chance to win some fun Blog Candy!!!
For my project, I decided to use on of the brand-new sets, Spring Garden, to create this simple Mother's Day card.
This sweet flower is from the Gerber Daisy file in the Spring Garden Cutting Files Set. I left off the stem and leaves to simplify the look of my card. I alternated light and dark yellow colors for the layers of the flower, inked the edges, and used a pretty button with some twine for the center of the flower. The "leaves" are from the Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files set, and I added a sentiment from Pink by Design's Joyful Tags Stamp Set.
I embossed my background paper with my Sizzix Paisley Palooza embossing folder and added a double strip of washi tape along the side (I put the tape on a separate piece of card stock so it wouldn't show the embossing underneath). That's it! Super simple, and I think it turned out nice...perfect for my Mom for Mother's Day. :)
Oooo...and I can't forget to remind you about the Spring MEGA Sale that going on now over at the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store.
