Mother’s Day card via House of 3

It’s late on Wednesday night and I got behind on my to do’s and so I just finished a Mother’s Day card for my wonderful Mother in law.  Luckily, she doesn’t live to far out of town so the card should make it to her by this weekend as long as I don’t forget to drop it off tomorrow.  I decided to send her one of my silk flowers and incorporated it into the card.  I was worried she might not realize it was removable so I simply punched a circle to put the clip through.  I used some of House of 3 Spring Junque printable backgrounds to print out the card. 

I did decide to personalize it using Photoshop and added the Happy Mother’s Day to the page.  You can do this using word too, simply print out the the page then go into word and type the word you want so that it prints out in the location you need it to be and then print it.  Super easy!!  I also decided to embellish it with some pink rick rack and then just inked the edges of the card a bit.  Ohhh, I did also add the lady’s silhouette with a digital brush again from my House of 3 stash.  I think had I simply printed out this paper without personalizing it with the Happy Mother’s Day and Silhouette it would have been fine.  I then opened my Silhouette SD and opened the tickets and then personalized those and sent them to my printer then through my Silhouette to cut the shapes out.  Love, Love, Love the ability to do that!!  As I told the ladies of House of 3, my carpel tunnel thanks them, less cutting by hand!

If you have any questions on anything you see feel free to leave me a comment and a way to reach you if you don’t have a blog.  Thanks for stopping by!
