Fantabulous Cricut 57 - Mum's The Word

We're nearing Mother's Day very quickly! With Easter so late it seems weird that Mother's Day is almost here.  I'm grateful for the FCCB challenge this week to make a special project for a mother and include the word mom, mum, mother, etc, so I can get my mother in law's parcel mailed out!

I have had a hard cover dollar store journal for quite a few years in my 'stash that I always knew I'd eventually use and that's why I'm keeping it'. (please tell me you all have one of them :) So, I pulled it out and covered it with some Brenda Watson paper and my trusty glue gun. For the cover, I cut the white background with the Just Cards cart and sponged the edges with pink Distress Ink. I added the word Mom from the Cursive 101 cart and stamped My Mind's Eye stamps on the background along with a cute border stamp I picked up for $1.50! from Michaels.  I used the Heritage cart for the bird cut out and covered it with flocking.  This was the first time I've used flocking and I was pleased with the results!

I added a line of stickles in the cutouts of the white background and added a ribbon bookmark in the back, inside cover (below).

Hope all you moms out there have a wonderfully happy Mothers' Day next weekend!

Be sure to check out my coordinating card :)
