Mother's Day Gift Sets...

With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, I am working on a few gifts for the mothers that I love! I decided to make them all a set of monogram cards in a matching box like I created last week. I am sharing one today for my step-mom Renee, or Nay-Nay as my girls call her! Here is the set:

The Card Set:

All products are by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Together Forever set, Simple Friendship set, Upsy Daisy set, Lovely Letters alphabet
Ink: Choclate Chip, Baja Breeze, and Soft Sky classic inks; Chocolate Chip craft ink
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip cardstock; Glossy White cardstock; Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP
Accessories: Chocolate Chip wide grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Edge punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals, Whisper White jumbo grommets

I wanted to keep the design simple since Mother's Day is fast approaching! I used the striped wipe technique to make the Upsy Daisy card. I thought I'd try stamping over it with craft ink and I like how it dried matte. It looks kind of neat against the glossy background!

Well, hope your day is going well! We are heading to Ikea for some much needed toy storage! Thanks for stopping by!
