Floral Inspiration with Baggage Claim!

Hi Quick Quotes fans, Cathy here with you today. I am sharing a card that I created for Mother's Day with the gorgeous Baggage Claim collection and a little help from my Silhouette Cameo. I used a cut file from Lori Whitlock, you can find the file here.

The only thing I did differently with the cut file, was I add another layer behind each flower and a three more leaf cuts. After I cut all the pieces, I inked each and every piece with a coordinating PowderPuff Ink. I love the soft shadowing effect that this inks give. The Coral and Caribbean Blue are my favorites. After I inked all the pieces, I just layered the flower pieces and added a brad. Once I had the leaves and flowers added, I curled some of the flower pieces with a pencil...just to give them a bit more body!

The flowers pull out of the pot and you can add your sentiment to this piece. I trimmed down a vellum quote from an Itty Bitty Quote box and adhered it with a glue dot hidden by that little heart.

The quote reads:

Mothers hold their children's hands
for just a little while....
Their hearts forever...

Wishing all of you, a very special Mother's Day from all of us here at Quick Quotes!
