Mother’s Day Magnolia Sunshine

A Mother's Day card with Copic-coloured pink magnolia blossoms and yellow daffodils.

Well, I hadn’t planned on taking a two-month break from blogging. And I had, vaguely, planned on catching up with writing up the things I hadn’t blogged so I would have some scheduled posts as a buffer when I did start posting again. But here I am, on the 1st of June, typing away about a card I made in March.

I’ve been feeling a bit uninspired, particularly when it comes to making cards, but there are some things that just have to be made and Mother’s Day cards are definitely one of them. Or two of them to be precise: one for my mum and one for my other half’s. I made life a bit simpler for myself by deciding to use the same image — Power Poppy flowers of course — for both, and using the same colour combos for the flowers, but I still didn’t want to make two completely identical cards. So this one has the full image and the other one was sized so the the image fills more of the card. I’ll post that one later this week.

Copic markers:

saucer magnolia – RV17, RV34, RV02, RV00
trumpet daffodils – BV31, YR16, Y38, Y15, Y02
snowdrops – T3, T1, YG25

magnolia leaves – R85, YG97, YG63
berries – W1, W00
background – G00
