Hi there! It’s Andrea back with you, and today I’m sharing a Mother’s Day card inspired by my amazing mother-in-law. She grows the most beautiful and varied day lilies, and I couldn’t resist creating these paper ones for her.

- Sirio Color Lime 80lb
- Sirio Color Celeste 80lb
- Sirio Color Gialloro 80 lb
- Woodstock Giallo 83 lb
- Woodstock Rosa 83 lb
- Colorplan Bright White 100lb
- The Greetery BotaniCuts: Lily
- Whimsy Stamps Alphabet Dies (retired)
- Distress Oxides: Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass

I began by die cutting my floral elements from several papers. For the pink lilies, I used Rosa and added shading with Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress Oxides. I die cut the yellow bloom from Giallo and inked it with Mustard Seed. I cut the orange flower from Gialloro and blended it with Ripe Persimmon. I assembled each lily with liquid adhesive.
I die cut each of the buds from the same cardstock as their larger counterpart and used the same ink colors as mentioned above. I also added Mowed Lawn to the buds’ stems.
I cut the leaves from Lime cardstock and blended each with Mowed Lawn.
I created an A2 cardbase from Bright White cardstock and blended the front with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. I flicked water across the card and blotted it with a paper towel. I arranged my floral elements onto the card, adhering them with a combination of liquid adhesive and foam squares. For more interest I splattered the card with white paint and shimmer spray.
For my sentiment I die cut the word “mom” once from Celeste and twice from Bright White paper. I layered the white letters and offset the blue ones before adhering them to my card with bits of foam. For a little more sparkle, I scattered blue jewels around the card.
Thanks for stopping by! I can’t wait to give my MIL this card – I just know she will love it!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re inspired to create a one-of-a-kind Mother's Day card!
