Mother's Day

I've just finished making my Mother's day cards using the My Craft Studio Parchment craft 3 Cd and vellum lace panels. I printed a fan image onto pearlescent paper to make the fan on the front and found the same image in a bookmark style which I copied, flipped and stretched to make a matching insert.

The cards have been made using an A4 sized card scored and folded on th DL line to make an almost square shortfall card. This first card is in pale lime green with ice white pearlescent paper as a backer on the front and inside.
This second card is in pale lilac with very pale lime green pearlescent backing paper. Both fans have been printed in pale lilac the same as the inserts.
A peel-off complements the colours and flowers with glittered brads complete the fans.
