A Mother Holds her Children's hands


This is a Mother's Day card for a new mom of a young infant or toddler. The phrase reads "A Mother holds her children's hands for a little while...and their hearts forever" The background of the card was embossed with Fiskars embossing templates little hands and feet, then shaded with chalk. Little pink hand brads were used to adhere the phrase to the bottom of the card, pink and blue were used so that the card would be suitabe for the mother of either a boy or girl.

This is just lovely and would be so wonderful for a new mom! I've heard that phrase before about a Mother's hands, and you've incorporated it so well into your card! Just great!

It is such a thoughtful card. All the elements work so well together. I am jealous - in the US you have a much better selection of embossing folders. I had not seen that one before. Beautiful.
