Taylored Expressions: Petal Pop-Ups 2 Die

In my home, I don't get sweet or elegant Mother's Day cards, my teenage boys and husband always go for the funny and sarcastic kind.  I don't ever make cards for them to give me - that would be making it way too easy for them. But if I did, the following card would be perfect.  (Except they would probably say "I turned out fabulous in spite of you!"

Petal Pop-Ups 2 for Mom

It's such a fun sentiment - I wanted it surrounded by bold and unique flowers.  These are the Petal Pop-Ups 2 die from Taylored Expressions.  There are three sizes as you can see from the big polka dot, the middle sizes and the smaller one on the orange flower.  I bent each petal to get tons of dimension.

Every once in awhile, I wish that I would get beautiful, sweet and elegant cards - but I wouldn't trade my loud, funny and goofy guys for anything.  I know they turned out fabulous!!



  1. Gorgeous!!!! I have to say I LOVE the funny cards my hubby and kids pick up for me...the funnier the better. And...I totally agree...I would NEVER let them give me one of my cards. I like knowing they are at a store reading a bunch of cards until they find the right's the effort.

  2. "In spite of you"..yes, I have a teenaged boy too..and that's it right there!
