Happy Mother's Day
Today it's Mother's Day in the UK, so I'm sharing the card I made for my mum. I'll be spending my Mother's Day cheering on my eldest son in a rugby match, so we visited mum last night and she loved her card.
I got the inspiration for the card from this month's Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine. This issue's card school shows you how to make this fabulous Circle Gatefold card. I followed the step by step instructions to create the card shape:
I also took inspiration from Becky James' use of the Floral Muse collection in the article but chose different papers from the 8x8 paper pad and embellishments to create my own design.
I inked the edges of the papers with Victorian Velvet distress ink and punched some of the corners to soften the card. I layered the inside and outside with papers adding lace and butterfly ribbon to the front.
Finally I added a sentiment sticker, frame and embellishments to the circle part of the card.
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
