Awesum Dad Pie Chart Card

Hi there, Kalyn here! Today I've got a Father's Day card to share with you and a video tutorial to go with it! I've got lots of Father's Day projects that I've created using some different styles to fit the different guys in our lives. This one is for the lovable nerd, math-whiz or stats guy, featuring pie charts and the "aweSUM" sentiment.

I added some fun vellum pinked circles to give the card some dimension and interest. And you know I can't resist stamping on a patterned background. It's my favorite.

Well, I hope you liked the card and my video tutorial! For direct links to all the products I used, click the video to watch it over at YouTube and the product links are in the description box!

Thanks so much,

Masked Background Mom Card

Hi Virtual Smooches friends! Happy May to you! I'm so excited that spring is in full swing and summer is on the horizon. I wish these seasons lasted forever!

So with Mother's Day coming up this weekend, I wanted to share one last Mother's Day card idea! This one uses a mix of the Roses die set, the Retro Arrow die, a Flag Tags die and the Sassy Script stamp set. I wanted to use the Retro Arrow die and create a mask to create a misted background.
Watch the video tutorial I created below to see how it all came together!

So there you have it! A fun technique-y Mother's Day card, perfect for this Sunday or for your mom's birthday! You could even change up the sentiment entirely and use it for a friend's birthday. Thanks so much for visiting today and I'll see you again next week with a new video!
