Here is the card I made for my Mom for Mother's Day. She is an avid quilter and gardener, so I tried to come up with a card that had both of her hobbies. I hope that she likes it, I am pretty sure that she will.
To make the 'quilt' portion of the card, I stitched 9 1.5 inch squares to a 5 x 6.5 inch cream colored cardstock. I then used a Stampendous 'Happy Mothers Day' stamp for the sentiments. I used Inkscape to design the tulips cutfile. If you would like to have the SVG Click here! After the tulips were cut out at almost 5 inches tall, I used some pink and green ink to give some depth. A white gel pen was then used to add additional highlights to the tulips. I used my xyron to apply glue to the tulips and adhere them to the card.
