Mothers Day cards

I have done three of them so far. Not really sure about them at all. The first one is a very simple easy to do basic card.
1) Whisper White base card
2) Stamped the Mothers day verse in Basic Black
3) A strip of Bella Rose Designer paper
4) Knotted a piece of Riding Hood Red Double stripped ribbon across the middle.
5) Added Crystal Effects to the top two rows of dots
6) Then topped the CE off with Chunky Glitter

For the second one I pulled out some really retired Cranberry Crisp card stock
1) Whisper White base card
2) Cranberry Crisp done using the Swiss Dots folder from Cuttlebug
3) Trim picked up at WalMart placed across top and mounted to base card.
4) Labels Four Nestabilities used in 3 different sizes for the main verse.
5) Stamped Happy Mother's Day in Basic Black on the smallest and then used direct to paper to add some Cranberry to the edge.
6) On the largest Nestie piece I did paper piercing freehand so they are not exactly neat.

Number three also uses Cranberry Crisp along with True Thyme
1) Cranberry Crisp base card
2) 2nd layer True Thyme
3) Stamped the largest image from Fifth Avenue Floral in Cranberry Crisp, then stamped it 2 more times, cut different sizes and pop dotted them over the main rose. Stamped the verse in Basic Black.
4) To add a little color to the rose I used my Blender Pen and just picked up ink from the Cranberry Crisp pad then used Stickles over the added color.
5) Used direct to paper for the edge and pulled out an old Anna Griffin Ornamental Bracker punch from All Night Media to do the top 2 corners.
