Mother's Day Card

Our Designer Craig Laird has created a pretty Mother's Day Card - he's picked a beautiful colour palette from our range of card. Not many people would think to use black in a Mother's Day card but the border really brings out the pink and ivory.

Project Details:

"When it comes to pink, although I don't use it a lot but then I do, I love to add black to it. I love the look of the 2 colours matted and layered. It can help to tone down the brightness a few shades. Adding the Ivory felt, well I think the combination looks very attractive. So I have gone with this colour theme For this Mother's Day."

Card Making Materials:

From Papermilldirect -

Ivory Felt Embossed 300GSM card (Special Offer - Ivory Hammered would also work here)
