Celebrate Mom with Glitz Designs

Happy Friday dear friends!  I can hardly believe we are at the end of April already!! Seems like the month just flew right on by.  In just a few short days, it will be time to celebrate those women who are so very special in our lives.  I love Mother's Day and all that it entails!! It also means that my kids will either come home or call me at some point in the day and I look forward to spending time with them!!  I'm so sad to say that my mom is no longer with us, but each year I make a card in remembrance of her!  I was excited to design some Mother's Day cards with Glitz Design's Laced with Grace Collection!  What a gorgeous line of papers!!  So perfect for Mother's Day cards, or any type of card for that matter!!
I died some seam binding with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Reinker and added some blue buttons to enhance the blue in the chair.  I also layered a Laced with Grace Glitzer on top of a Laced with Grace Whatnot and I love the combination! Glitz Designs embellishments are so fun to work with and give you so many possiblities!
 Supplies used:
Glitz Designs "Laced with Grace" patterned Papers: Polka and Rose
Glitz Designs "Laced with Grace" Stamps
Glitz Designs "Laced with Grace" Glitzers
Glitz Designs "Laced with Grace" Whatnots

other supplies:  Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream CardstockPrima lace, Hug Snug Seam Binding, Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Reinker, Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, Papertrey Ink buttons and twine, Papertrey Ink stamps: Tiny Tags, Papertrey Ink Double-Ended Banner Die.

The next card is very simple and easy.  It will take you all of 2 minutes to put together!  I think the whatnot word collage sets the tone of the card and the rest just falls into place!
 I layered some cardstock with a Laced with Grace Whatnot, added some ribbon then attached a Laced with Grace Journaling Sticker over the ribbon.  I added a Laced with Grace Glitzer, cut out and attached some butterflies and added some jewels and a bow.
Supplies used:

Beautiful cards Kristii! What a great idea to honor your Mom! I lost my Mom almost four years ago and I think I may do the same! Thanks for a wonderful idea!

I'm the one that bought the first card on Etsy. Love it! Just added my personal touch on the inside. Came online to find some dimension information for Martha Stewart's edging punches (for the envelope I'm making) and saw your invoice includes your blogspot. Happy to find it! Would love to know where you get all your materials and which ones you recommend. Local Michael's lacks in stuff.
