Besides the remarkable Butterfly Woman stamp, I've added sentiments to make them excellent Mother's Day cards. Here's how I made them.

Happy Mother's Day Spattered Ombre Background Card (first card in my post)
  1. Stamp Butterfly Woman with black ink onto Spattered Ombre paper (mine was leftover from another project, but it's so easy to make if you don't have some prepared.)
  2. Stamp sentiment with black ink from All The Moms below the image.
  3. Trim to 3-1/4 by 4-1/2 inches.
  4. Frame with a complementary color cardstock, mine is 1/16 inch (about .1 cm) bigger on all sides.
  5. Adhere to folded 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 inch card base.
