Lot of 41 "BEST MOM EVER" assorted cards using a 6 x 6 paper pad

I have been working on this batch of cards the last two nights. I just finished them up and am so pleased with how they turned out.   I was just winging it as far as layouts/sketches.. just cut, layer and see what I liked.  The paper in the pad I used, which is from Lawn Fawn called Let's Polka, is such a fun colorful pad and the patterns go so good together. 

 A little tip.. when I was making the larger 3" wide banners, I cut a black layer 3 1/8 wider and laid them together like in the picture below:

I then cut up the banner like you would usually do to make a banner.

and then slid the pattern piece up a little after cutting and it fits nicely on the black layer.

I typed up in Word the saying "BEST MOM EVER" and printed off a bunch. I punched them out and layered them onto the MFT Pinked Edge Circle dies. 

This is the paper pad that I used. It is by Lawn Fawn and called Let's Polka.  I had used some of the pad on the last batch of cards and then used up the rest of the entire pad on this batch of cards.

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
