Mother's Day flowers

Second post today but this card is so different from the one I posted earlier (the sick pig card) that I wanted to have it separately. I made this one for my mom (who hopefully hasn't started reading my blog) for Mother's Day this weekend. Mom is always impressed by cards that open a bit differently so I decided to convert the Crazy 4 Challenges card sketch into a gatefold. The papers are from Basic Grey (my absolute favourite company for papers) and the image is a freebie from Tiddly Inks - PCP group. If you haven't joined the Tiddly Inks group on Paper Craft Planet then hurry over and sign up as Christy rewards followers with a freebie every week.

I added some glossy accents and Stickles glitter glue to the flowers & vases to give the card a bit more "zip" and then finished it off with some crystal flowers I had floating around my desk.

  • Basic Grey, patterned paper
  • Tiddly Inks, digital stamp
  • Glossy accents
  • Stickles
  • Spellbinders
  • Crystal flowers (stash)
