More Mother's Day Cards

Today we had a fun time at my sister's house. She is expecting so I made a cute "mommy to be" card for her and gave her some maternity clothes (this is her first child). I had made my mom's card before so I thought I would just add a cute envelope. Here are my two projects for Mother's Day:



I used the New Arrival cricut cartridge on this card. The mommy was cut at 4 1/2 inches. I cut three layers: 1 black, 1 brown and 1 patterned paper. The black was used for the main figure. The brown was used for the pants and the hair (I used a silver marker to make the polka dots) and I used the glitter stack for the patterned paper. The card was cut at 5" tall x 4 1/2 wide.




Now for the hippo on the envelope I used the create a critter cutting it at 4 1/2 inches. I used the moving eyes (found at Michaels) and the Martha Stewart glitter polka dots paper. I used plan fuschia card stock and pink card stock for the back ground and mouth of the hippo.
