Mother’s Day Bear Hug Card - Using Up Patterned Paper Packs - Stashbuster

 Hello and Happy May!  I can’t believe how fast April flew by!  

Today I am sharing these cute Mother’s Day cards.  I am pretty sure I have used this image before, but I always thought it looked cute for Mother’s Day or a baby card.  I need to get these sent out ASAP!

I just today decided that I was going to make a concerted effort to use up some of my old 6x6 paper pads.  I got out two of my oldest My Mind’s Eye pads (they were both similar color schemes) and I cut up all the papers into card fronts.  I kept the scraps and am going to just push through them and make as many cards as I can.  There is a local birthday card charity that I can donate to so I may do a lot of birthday cards.  

I usually design a card around a stamp, but I thought it would be interesting to see what I come up with focusing on the paper!  

So fair warning, you will be seeing a bunch of cards with similar paper this month. I hope to get them all done quickly but we will see.  

Stamps sets used: Close to My Heart Bear Hug, and Close to My Heart For You Darling.  

Thanks for visiting and for your kind comments!  Are you doing any sort of craft personal challenge right now?

Your bears are so cute and so are the papers you're using up.

Very cute cards, Heidi. I think the sweet bears are perfect for a Mother’s Day card.
