Mother's Day Celebration!

Welcome to Mother' Day Celebration with The Twinery!  My mom is such a special lady and I try each year to find a special way to honor her on the day dedicated especially to her, Mother's Day.  Today, I have a card and a package to share with you in honor of Mom's special day!

Mom Day Front

I wanted to create a very feminine card for my mom so I pulled out several sheets of patterned paper with girly colors and made sure Mom was front & center.  I love this mom die from Lil' Inker Designs! It really keeps the focus on where I want it to be and the font is gorgeous (not to mention that it cuts out a cute heart shape for the "o"!)

I created a window card and used two different colors of twine from The Twinery to add a feminine accent to the front of the card.  I used the new Solid Natural & Blossom Iridescent Shimmer for my bow.  Can you see the sparkle from the shimmer twine.  Swoon!!  I love those shimmer twines so much!

Here is the card when it is opened.

Mom Day Box Front

Now for her gift I wanted to create a special package.  I took a white cardboard box that I had purchased and decorated it up.  I used another new twine love, Rainbow Teal Shimmer, and used it to "anchor" the mom diecut on both sides of the box.  I added a Stitched Scallop Border under the mom to ground it.  

I punched a hole with a hole punch (squeeze really hard and it will go through, but if you have trouble, use a paper piercing tool instead) in each side of the box's lid and tied the twine through the hole.  I knotted the twine on the back side of the lid so that it wouldn't pull through and this created a nice, clean look on the front of the box.  

For my "mom" diecut, I also die cut it out of chipboard so that the twine wouldn't tear through the paper as it was holding onto the m's.  

I decorated a trendy wood chip butterfly with my twine as well.  I used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the center of the wood butterfly, colored the butterfly white & then stamped the text with gray ink.  When the ink was dry, I threaded the Blossom Iridescent Shimmer twine through the hole in the butterfly and left antennas at the top. 

The decorated box really adds a special touch to my Mother's Day gift.  I'll have to show you later when is inside the box, but I can't spoil the surprise for my mom yet! 

Thank you for joining me for a Mother's Day Celebration with The Twinery.  Be sure to stop by The Twinery's blog to see all of the other fabulous Mother's Day ideas this week!
