Cards for Mom & Dad

Have you seen the beautiful frames with hanging tags everyone is making? I love this look, but have found the frames expensive! So while I hunt for a good frame at garage sales this summer, I thought I would try the look for in cards made for Mom and Dad with The Robin's Nest. I used the Cricut Fancy Frames cartridge and cut the Robin's Nest Glitter Chipboard with the Deep cut housing blade on a multi cut of two. I love the Robin's Nest Teal Fleur Paper Clips and used them on my card for Mom. For Dads card, I just used some dew drops to look like pins. On Mom's card I cut the silver flower in half from the Robin's Nest White flowers pack, so that it looked like a star burst. The ribbon is from Paris Bliss Ribbon pack. I love this chenille look and layered it on top of some Anna Griffin trim. The paper is Calamity Jane Diagonal and is matted on some plain brown card stock. I used the teal chipboard for creating bitty banners.
For Dad's card, I used the Robin's Nest Very Black Glitter and Yellow Sunshine Glitter Chip boards. I used the Gold Glitter letters for both Mom and Dad and since I did not have ribbon to match Dad's card, I just used some yellow Stickles. I fussy cut some flames from the Flames paper and covered up the sea shells on the Cricut frame. I thought this flame paper was perfect for the Dad who loves motorcycles or hot rods!
