Mother's Day Cards

I made these two cards using Pink Paislee's Queen Bee collection. I love this line of paper and embellishments! On the first card, I used a Prima flower sprayed with Olive Vine and Wheatfields Glimmer Mist. It matches the paper perfectly! The rhinestone swirls are from Zva Creative, and the rub on is from Melissa Frances. I hand cut some of the flowers and leaves from the QB paper and tucked them up under the Prima flower. I'm extremely pleased with the results. Probably one of my favorite cards!
For the next card, I tried a new technique that I've seen on many card blogs lately. To make my ribbon and bow, I took some soft yellow Martha Stewart seam binding, and got it thoroughly wet. I absorbed some of the water with paper towels, then sprayed the seam binding with Wheatfields Glimmer Mist. I scrunched the wet misted seam binding in my hand while blowing it partially dry. I ended up letting it air dry the rest of the way. It matches the Queen Bee papers perfectly! The sentiment is another Melissa Frances rub-on. (The colors in this photo are not true to the actual colors of the Queen Bee papers.)
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Mother's Day!
