Mother’s Day Card Ideas (Echo Park Paper)

Hi Everyone

It sure has been a quiet month on the blog as I have been busy planning all kinds of exciting things! Starting tomorrow we will be taking the PaperVine Shop to the Dunkleys Craft Show and there are classes to plan, guest projects to complete – it’s been a crazy time!

I have a quick idea for a card to share today – perfect for Mothers Day. It’s matchbook style card that can be filled with any message you like and it would be easy to tuck a little gift card or voucher inside too.

I am not really a pink paper person, so I was a little offput when I first saw this gorgeous collection – but it was a great lesson in looking closer! This fabulously bold grey paper goes really well with the green and the bees are great bold but feminine accents too! The lovely brads are from the This and That “Graceful” Collection.


This was one of those projects that came together through a little bit of trial and error! I do love it though as it is a little more substantial than a card and would make a great keepsake if you added some photos to the pocket.

Here you can see another card made with the same collection.

The base of this card and matching envelope were created with my Cameo, using files from Lori Whitlock seen here and here. The papers and embellishments are all from Echo Park.

Pink and grey is such a lovely combination of colors – give it a try!

Please leave a comment or email me with any questions

    I struggle with pink not just in scrapping but in general BUT that being said, so love the way you've partnered it with that fab grey paper!!
