Heart 2 Heart Challenge – A Mother’s Day Card

I was so happy to see this week’s challenge on the Heart 2 Heart (H2H) blog. The challenge this week is to create a Mother’s Day card and I just so happen to have one on hand that I created last week for our Scrapbook Fiesta card class, A Pocketful of Posies. Here is my flower pot card…


I first created some of these flower pot cards for my mother and my mother-in-law last year. I couldn’t remember exactly how to do them so I searched online for a tutorial and found a really great one at Learn to Stamp and Scrap. I love how the card is closed with the ribbon and she added the little tray at the bottom of the card to make it look like a real pot.

Here is a look at the inside…


You can put your ‘secret’ message to mom on the flower bouquet insert and then she can use it as a bookmark if she wishes…I love that!

Here are a few close-ups for you…


I had so much fun with CTMH’s new Irresistible Chipboard Die-Cuts. When you sponge them with ink, the embossed images on the die-cut repel the ink and they ‘pop’ with the design.


Thank you for stopping by and be sure to stop back by the next few days as I will be sharing my other card class items! Have a blessed day and make it from your heart…with Close To My Heart!



  1. OMG, Pam! ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE and I'm soooo going to copy this! Can't wait to see you in DC!
