Hi friends! Today I've got a couple of projects created especially for Mom! :-) These are also being featured over at the Bella Blvd blog, so you can check them out there as well! :-)
Makling special cards and/or gift packages is one of my most favorite things to do! This is exactly the reason I started card making all those years ago. Creating something unique and handmade for the special people in my life is just one of the ways that I can express how much they mean to me!
My first project is a small gift bag that I dressed up and personalized. I started with a plain, flat kraft colored bag. I knew I wanted to make some paper flowers for the front, so I die cut several different colors (I used papers from the Color Chaos collection), glued them together, and then added a coordinating enamel dot. I love that there are enamel dots to match almost every Bella color! In the case that there isn’t a matching color (like for the orange flower), just take a Milk White enamel dot and color it with an alcohol based marker (such as Copics or Spectrum Noir).
Color Chaos: Scallop Strandz, Gulf Strandz, Peep Strandz, Bell Pepper Strandz, Orange Strandz, Treasures & Text; Scattered Sprinkles: Treasures & Text; Enamel Dots: Ice, Bell Pepper, Punch
Up next is a card I made that can be used either for Mother’s Day, or any day really. I definitely think Moms should be celebrated year round, don’t you? I layered on some strips of paper from the Illustrated Faith Whatever Is Lovely collection. The wonderful sticker is from the Color Chaos Trinkets sticker sheet.
The fun chipboard flower is actually is from the Simply Spring collection. I just love how almost every Bella collection is so easy to mix and match! I spelled “mom” out using letters from the Amorie Alpha collection. For embellishment, I tied on a twine bow, added a bit of coordinating Washi Tape, and a couple of Illustrated Faith Enamel Hearts.
IF Whatever Is Lovely: Praiseworthy; IF Washi Tape: Criss Cross; IF Enamel Hearts: She Blooms Mix; Color Chaos: Trinkets; Simply Spring: Ciao Chip Icons
