Here's what you do:

Pick your paper from the DCWV Pretty Patterns and color it to your liking. Use colors that go with your paper flowers.

Once colored, trim the page with your paper trimmer and use the Permanent GlueTape to stick it to the A7 Card Base.

With the embroidery floss and buttons, thread some floss through the button holes and tie them off in the back. Use a Mini Dot to make sure it stays down.

Use Mini Dots to adhere your paper flowers together to make a fuller flower.

Place a button in the center with Mini Dots and set aside.

Using the alphabet stamp set, stamp “MOM” with your Scattered Straw Distress Ink.

Trim this to fit your card and use the Permanent GlueTape to stick to your colored background.

Use two or three Pop Up Dots to glue to your colored panel as well.

Add two buttons to the corner of the "MOM" sentiment.

Add your thoughtful words inside, and place it in the envelope. This MOM card is worth saving and you certainly could follow the same guidelines for other names as well.
