Mothers, they’re really something huh? This year is rather special for me as it’s the first time I can say that I have two! Both my mummy and my mum-in-law are amazing and amazingly wonderful ladies, a fact that should be celebrated not just on one day of the year but all year round.
But that doesn’t mean Mothers Day isn’t the perfect excuse to shower them with a little extra love, or cake or that phone call you keep meaning to make. Don’t forget it’s on Sunday 15th March 2015.
The lovely Made with Love™ crew were kind enough to send me a couple of cards from their 2015 Mothers Day collection to sample and let me tell you they’re beautiful. Printed with hot wax ink on to pearlised paper, they look and feel really special.
The first of my 2 cards, “Venice Pastel Sparkly” (pictured above) in baby pink is priced at £4.95 and features a vintage crystal cluster on the cover. I was a bit sceptical that this might fall off as it’s pretty substantial in size, but it’s actually secured very well. It gives the card a classy feel without being tacky. If baby pink isn’t quite right for you there are several other colour options to choose from.
My second card, “Vintage Rose Pink Scrabble” (pictured below) priced at £3.50 uses scanned scrabble tiles to spell out ‘Mum’. I really like that the floral background print decorates but doesn’t distract or overcrowd the simple elegance of the design. I often find floral cards much too busy which wasn’t the case here.
Both cards have a blank insert lining and I love that they’ve continued with the pearlised paper in line with the covers. For an added personal touch you can choose to have a personal message printed on the inside. Another small detail that I think is really handy is that they’ve printed ‘large letter’ on the back of the cards so you don’t get caught out with the wrong postage if you’re not able to give your card in person.
