Happy Mother’s Day

Hi Everyone,

We are fast approaching Mother’s Day so it is time to dust off the Vintage papers and create a card for your Mother.  This one is actually a gift for a friend so I still have to make a card for my own Mother.

I have seen this card used by many different people and I absolutely just love it so I had to give it a whirl.  It’s called a Pop Up Book Card and you can find the tutorial here.


I am really happy with the way it turned out.  What I like about this card the most is the inside.  We normally do not give much attention to the inside but this fold is all about the inside.


Since this was a gift for a friend I also made a special box to hold the card.  You can find my tutorial here.


Here’s a list of the dies used for this project:

B226 – Happy (Set of 2)
B227 – Love (Set of 2)
B232 – Mother’s (Set of 2)
B235 – You (Set of 2)
B236 – Day (Set of 2)
B308 – City Girl Edger
B311 – Chrystanthemum Strip
B315 – Ivy Corner Flourish
XM-8 – XM Scalloped Oval
DL140 – Dutch Scallop Square
Flourishes Stamps – Motherly Love

I hope you can find some time to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Mother’s Day!  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!
