For Mother’s Day, I made these cards for my mother and mother-in-law. I traced the flowers onto card stock and then embroidered the flowers. It’s a bit tricky embroidering paper which can tear easily. Since I couldn’t see from the back side where my needle should go, I made those holes with my needle first which created a guide for my needle.
PackRat Power: The purple card stock is leftover from my wedding invitations 8 years ago. The white glossy card stock is from a botched print job from my last job. They were going to throw out a big box of this paper since one side is printed. I grabbed it and have been using it for projects ever since.
Each mom got a themed basket. Cooking for my mother-in-law and spa for my mom. I am blessed that our families can celebrate together. We went for a wonderful Italian meal and then met up at my sister’s house for presents and chocolate cupcakes (that were to die for!).
