Mothering Sunday and My Amazing VIP Mother Revisited

I could start the whole debate about whether Sunday is Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday, but all I will say is that in our home it is very firmly Mothering Sunday. In the UK this is always two Sundays prior to Easter as the tradition dates back to when girls who were in 'service' were allowed to visit their Mothers two weeks prior to Easter and would often pick Spring flowers on the way home; which is where the tradition of giving your Mother Flowers comes from. You see you don't just get fabulous projects here, you get Social History too!!



You may remember the project I shared with you on 19 March, which was a little Pillow Box that is the latest project for my VIP Reward Members. Well I also wanted to make a card for my Mother and one to go with the Pillow Box, just so it was a bit of a set. I also want to continue to highlight a few of the Sale-a-Bration items while this fantastic promotion is still on. So here are the pictures.




The dimensions I give below are for the smaller card, rather than the one I have made for my Mother, but the technique is the same. Lots of heat embossing to make a resist for lots of inking and ombre. O am really pleased with the result (when am I not!?) and think it goes really well with the little box, which was rather the point.
