Imitation is the Best Form of Flattery! Mother’s Day Card #1


Hello Everyone!

Welcome Back for a peek at Today’s Card!

I spent all day making cards for Mother’s Day…you do realize that

Mother’s Day is next weekend? Yes, it came up quicker than I expected!

My Mom is in heaven…but I have my Daughter, other Grand-daughter’s Mother,

Son’s Fiancé’, Sisters, Sisters-in-law, and nieces, that are all Moms too!

We can always find someone to give a Mother’s Day Card!


A while ago, a group I belong to, had a Card swap.

This Card is one I received…from Carla Turchetti



I loved this Card…so different!

I decided to CASE (Copy And Share Everything), but I changed up

a few things to make it my own!

Here is the inside of Carla’s Card!


Carla fussy-cut this flower out after stamping!

You can’t see it well, but behind the flower, Carla stamped and then

heat embossed in Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder!


Here is my Card!



I used Carla’s lay out and the overall design. I changed up the Embossing Folder,

the color of the circle, the Baker’s Twine instead of ribbon, and the circle DSP!


Here is the inside of my Card!
