For all you mothers – we hope you had a delightful Mother’s Day! We have a charming card to share with you that is sure to make Mom smile – even if it’s a little late!

AE Tonic Mother's Day Card

I used the Petal Pairs Set 1 to punch out flowers in two shades of pink (five of each for this card). Using my Cricut, I cut out a small pitcher and then punched out a small scalloped circle, to which I stamped “mom.”  I cut two pieces of paper to layer for the background and distressed the edges with the Tonic/ Tim Holtz Distress Tool. Using my Tim Holtz scissors, I hand cut an oval shape for the table and also five stems for the flowers. Using a black pen, I outlined the stems, pitcher, scalloped circle and doodled around the table.

Next, I used the Tonic/ Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick to poke two holes in the top of the scalloped circle. I wrapped a small piece of black twine around the pitcher and tied it in the middle of the circle. I then used a pop-dot to adhere the circle to the pitcher.

Now, we’re ready to adhere the rest! Using a tape-runner I adhered the table and stems. Then, I pop-dotted the pitcher and two of the flowers. Finally, I added five bright pink rhinestones that give the card a little extra sparkle. And there you have it, a bouquet of flowers guaranteed to last longer than fresh-cut ones!
