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.
#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!
