Things settled down enough on my end to be able to work on some Mother's Day cards for family and friends. I'd had fun with my Layered Easter Egg cards so I decided to keep it simple and use the same approach to these, creating three layers in Cricut Design Space and then attach them using foam squares.
- Recollections 110lb Cardstock ( Michaels )
- Coordinating Paper ( Michaels )
- Foam Dots / Squares
- Self Adhesive Rhinestones
Since Michaels enables me with their regular sales of their Hot Buy paper pads ( seriously, they could make me their ambassador for just these!) I gathered up some coordinating stacks. I decided on two color palettes. One pinks and lavenders and the other turquoise and white.
I cut my own cards because I like them heavier than most of the pre-cut card packs since I tend towards heavier cards. This is why the Recollections 110lb Cardstock is my go to. Cuts clean and stands up to the weight of my cards.
Using the Cricut Design Space software, I chose a plain Butterfly image then created two additional layers, adding ovals and circles.
