What better to use for a Mother’s Day card than the lush femininity of Melissa Frances? Any mom would be thrilled to get this gorgeous card designed by Evgenia Petzer with Melissa Frances’ “Classic Elegance” collection.
By layering a lot of soft, delicate elements, Evgenia created a card that has a collage look but without being heavy visually. There’s a lot of tone-on-tone cream color that adds to this effect with the layered elements.
The beautiful flower on the card is handmade. Evgenia made it with Melissa Frances ribbon:
When you make a card for your one and only mom, it’s always nice to make it truly unique. In this case I decided to make a handmade flower. I used the ribbon from Melissa Frances and the hot glue gun and put the sparklet in the centre. Its a focal point of my card!
