2 for the Price of One.....

These are some cards i made for my mum (mum) and Robs mum (mom)...back down home (St Albans) you never see the word mom and up here (Wolves) you hardly see the word mum!! It is quite strange but good for telling the mums apart!

Anyway, mum, mom, cards!

I made these as little gifts for the mothers, the "embellishment" is actually a felt flower brooch that i made and pinned to the card... the card was then just embellished with some vinyl letters cut on my robo... just had to sneak some vinyl in there somewhere!

I used a couple of sizzix dies and layered them up in different shades of felt

fixed them with a couple of loose stitches just to hold them together, sewed on a matching button and a brooch clasp on the other side

And viola! a card and pressie in one, great for a quick make for pretty much any occasion, i was thinking of making some snowflake ones for christmas...would you wear one?

Hope you liked them

These are lovely - would look great on the end of a scarf or tarting up a wooly hat or the backs of gloves...great idea!
