A BOUQUET OF HAPPY

a bouquet of happy
Happy Mother's Day!

This is the card I sent to my mom. It made her smile. Which was my intention. 


I've seen these types of cards built upon a flower pot. However, I decided that, since it was being mailed, I would use my Scallop Envelope Bigz die in my Big Shot. See?? Happy mail!


When the bouquet is removed from the envelope, it provides the perfect place to add a loving sentiment.


To make the bottom flowers that fall over the top of the envelope opening, I carefully cut portions of the flowers so they looked more realistic.

Happy, Happy to all you moms out there!

Smiles.
