Mother's Day Card

Finally, I have finished my Mother's Day cards for my mother and my mother-in-law.  This was a simple little card but I really loved the way it turned out.
The card base is a regular A2 size at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4' cut the long way.  All patterned paper is from the Enchanted Paper Stack by KI.  Mat 1 measures 5 1/4" x 4" and mat 2 measures 5" x 3 3/4".
The little mat in the front is from the Elegant Edges cartridge and the design is Oblong Shift found on p. 36.  This was cut at 4" and again at 3 3/4" using the same patterned paper as the mats.
The tea cup was cut from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 Cricut cartridge and can be found on p. 29 cut from the Tag shift function.  I also used the Flip button on my expression.  I cut the tea cup at 2" for the outside and the inside cup was cut at 3". I inked around them using Studio G brown ink.
The mom sentiment comes from Studio G and the inside sentiment is from Hero Art Everyday Sayings and was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
I used foam tape on the outside tea cup, metal flowers from a stash I have had for YEARS, some Pearl Bling and also finally got to use some Bakers Twine that I won from My Craft Spot weekly challenge.
