It is that time of year when we get to celebrate some pretty amazing women in our lives! Yes, friends, it’s time to celebrate our Mom’s! Whether you call her Mom, Mum, Mommy, Mother, or even Hey, Lady, now is the time to celebrate her! Today I have a fun card that reflects how I feel about my own Mom. She truly brings a smile to my heart. I am so grateful for all she is to me.

I used a variety of Bazzill Basics favorites for this card. That foil paper is SO much fun and I love that Mom will be able to see a reflection of her beautiful face when she pulls this card from the envelope. To create this card, I began with a sentiment cut from the American Crafts Fine and Dandy 6×6 paper pad. I layered the gorgeous Turquoise Mist Fourz cardstock. I LOVE this color so much and it works wonderfully with the Fine and Dandy papers!

I layered the sentiment over the turquoise strip, being sure to leave more room at the top for my additional sticker sentiment. I then layered that over the adorable floral patterned paper strip of the same width.

The next step was to adhere some glittery Thickers to spell out Mom. I added a couple of heart stickers from the Fine & Dandy collection to accent the three letters. I love how this makes the card more personal. So cute!

Finally, I layered the strip over a 4×4″ square of the silver foil paper. This added so much with just a simple addition to the card! I love how it finishes it out and brings in the glittery silver letters, as well. I adhere the layers to the white panel, and then to the card base created from a sheet of Candy Hearts Card Shoppe Cardstock (one of my absolute FAVORITES!).

Add a bit of candy on the side, and Mom is sure to be quite happy! Thanks for stopping by today! Have an inspired day!
