Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day

Today I’m sharing this simple, yet elegant, card to wish your loved one a Happy Mother’s Day!  Even though my Mother has been gone for 12 years, I miss her every day and I cherish the memories that I have.

When Mother’s Day arrives each year, I reminisce about all the great times I shared with my Mom and I make specials cards to give to other Mom’s in my life – like my daughter and my daughter-in-law!

Here are the directions for making this card:

  1. Cut Blushing Bride Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Big Shot and Quilt Top Embossing Folder to add a design.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the card front.
  3. Cut Petal Promenade DSP at 3″ x 4″.
  4. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 2″ x 4″.  Use Blushing Bride Classic Ink to stamp greeting.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the DSP.
  5. Attach a piece of Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon around the greeting layer and the DSP.  Tie another piece of the same ribbon to create a faux bow.
  6. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach over the Whisper White layer.
  7. Embellish with Basic Pearls.

Here’s one with a different look – fewer pearls.

And with an envelope – see the tiny butterfly

At the Class for Pull Up Accordion Card, these lovely ladies tackled this amazing card with gusto and look at the results!!

I did have all the cardstock and DSP cut for them but they had to do the rest, including making an envelope to fit the finished 6″ x 6″ card!

You can see all the details here and make your very own Pull-Up Accordion Card!
