Mother's Day card vases with paper flowers

As announced earlier, I’m teaching a workshop at Anthropologie in Salt Lake City on May 7th and as you know, I’m a huge flower lover, as is my mom, so flowers have to be involved somehow. I know. You’re shocked. This time I decided to make her a card that could also act as a gift and we’ll be making it at the workshop AND I’m providing it for you here today and on the Anthro blog. I came up with this 2D Mother’s Day card that becomes a perfect vase for some delightful paper flowers. It reads, “Dear mother, all flowers remind me of you” based on one of my favorite children’s songs. I had one of my favorite illustrators, Danielle Kroll, work her magic and I love how it turned out! Anthro graciously provided me with some of their products to be used as props. My dream come true.

This is one card that I’m actually quite thrilled to give to my mom (sent in the mail, of course!). You could even stick it in an 8×10″ frame and give it as a piece of art.
