Mother's Day - Pitcher of Flowers card

Looking for a simple but sweet Mother's Day card to make?  This is it.  I just love how it came out!  Here's how -

Cricut Machine or access to one such as in a scrapbooking store
Cartridge - Country Life
Plenty of card stock paper [coordinating cream, green blue, purple and pink]
Craft glue
Blank cards with envelopes (or make your own with cardstock)
Mini and regular size brads that coordinate with cardstock colors
Sticker foam


Using your Cricut machine and the cartridge Country Life (don't you love this cartridge? I do!), cut out one 4" pitcher in green cardstock.  Next, cut out one 4" pitchr-s in cream.  Next, cut out one 4" layer1 pitcher in pink cardstock.  Then cut out one 4" layer1 pitchr-s in blue.  Lastly, cut out one 4" layer2 pitcher in purple cardstock.  You should have pieces that look like this:

Glue your pitcher together and allow it to dry with something heavy on it so it doesn't curl.  After it is dried, apply a small piece of sticker foam to the back of it and apply that to the front of the card.  I used the foam because I love how the foam makes the pitcher pop from the card.  Around the pitcher place several brads in different shapes.  That's it!
