Thinking Ahead

I was thinking about my mom today and decided to get a headstart on her Mother's Day card.  The Calendars Made Easy-May paper is perfect for the occasion!  The bright yellow flower pattern is springy, bright and works beautifully for what I wanted to do.  I used my Cricut to cut out the word "mom" and used the negative space from the cut to make my card.  I used the May paper as the background and to make the flower. 
Products Used:
#1283 -Calendars Made Easy- May

To make the flower, simply punch out 6 circles.  Make a small swipe of strong adhesive or put a small dot of quick drying glue (hot glue will work great, too!) onto one edge of 5 of the circles.  Then, just pinch each circle to create a petal and hold until the glue dries.  Once you have made 5 petals, glue them to the sixth circle.  I added a button to the middle to complete my flower.  Adding some ink to the edges would be a great addition, as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  We'd love to see how you use your Calendars Made Easy papers.  Leave us a comment and link us to your blog or gallery so we can see!
