Make a Mothers Day hearts card with an embossing folder twist
"The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom."
~Henry Ward Beecher
This card is a cinch to make if you have a nice, closely woven embossing folder (such as the Stampin' Up! 119976 Square Lattice embossing folder which is sadly now retired) and a few paper punches in your stash. You wind up with such a pretty, quilted effect.
The rest of my card was easy to complete. I started with Blushing Bride cardstock as a base and stamped flowers from the Stampin' Up! Always Elegant stamp set (retired) on the top half of the card with Elegant Eggplant ink. I added some retired designer paper to the bottom half and tied a piece of white 5/8" (1.6cm) organza ribbon around the card. Next I stamped the flourish from the Always Elegant stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Elegant Eggplant ink. I matted it with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, then popped up my finished embellishment with Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally I stamped my sentiment on the front with a stamp from the Always Elegant stamp set in Elegant Eggplant ink and voila. It was all done.
I got carried away and made a whole group of these cards to send to special family members and girlfriends. A Mothers Day Heart card can be used for all sorts of other special occasions too. Just change up the sentiment or change the colours to suit your occasion.I think they would make fantastic Valentines Day cards, for example.
If you have a card with this type of embossing on it, I would really love to see it. Please do share it with me.

I have some other examples of cards I have made to make my mother's day special. My cards for this occasion don't always have hearts on them but one do have flowers. I found one of these card layouts on the 'web but some I created without that inspiration. Both of them have Big Shot elements on them.
Here's the one I designed myself:
Another one I made was completely CASEd (copied and shared) from a lovely Stampin' Up! demonstrator whose name I cannot recall. (So sorry! I would have loved to giver her credit for her design!) I altered it a little to suit the designer series papers I had:
