Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge 2: Mom's Day

Good morning girls! I hope your Wednesday is off to a wonderful start. Today the Cuttlebug Challenge blog is sponsored by My Graphico and one of the participants will win a set of digital stamps from there.

We were provided Shopping Boutique to work with this week and the prompt of creating cards for Mother's Day with a coordinating envelope. I cropped out the flower from the shopping bag, enlarged it and then printed it on red and yellow. The red was trimmed and I used the back and then embossed it with Stylized Flowers. The Yellow was cut out, embossed with Swiss Dots and then popped up with dimensionals. I also added some red and clear gems to the flower centers. My envelope flap was also embossed.

I decorated the front of the envelope by die cutting 3 flowers and then trimming the blossoms to match the flowers in the center of my big flower.

I hope you enjoyed it - it was fun to work with such a large scale image! Be sure to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog to view all the other creations by the design team! And have a beautiful day!!
