Mother's Day Cards

Mother's Day will be here before we know it, these pretty bookmarks make great Mother's Day cards.
 
 
You get 4 bookmarks total, 2 of each design. These are very easy to work with, all you need to do is cut them out. I also cut a piece of chipboard and layered mine up, I used all of the bookmarks, putting 1 on the bottom, chipboard than the 2nd bookmark (Lilac on Lilac and Lavender on Lavender) on top.
 
 
After layering them up I punched the holes in the top and added a piece of twine. I used my paper crimper on the card face and a Cuttlebug embossing folder (butterflies) with some Core'dinations paper, I sanded some of the embossing along the butterflies, "trails".
 
I also added a small wood butterfly to each bookmark and a jewel to the center of the butterflies. Sequins and pearls on the opening edge and used my only Mother's Day stamp on the sentiment.
 
Thank you Renee from www.plumpurdy.com for the wonderful paper crimper and Core'dinations papers.
