Week 13 (March 25th) - Mother's Day

     Yes, I made my Father's Day card before my Mother's Day card! That's just because that one was easier... technically my Mother's Day card was planned in my head first. I am VERY pleased with my card, however, it was ALOT of work, and I was happy when they were finished. Apparently, the hard work was worth the effort, because two of them sold at my recent show!

Inkadinkadoo Floral clear stamp set

-Cut a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Primrose Petals card stock. Score in the center and fold, making a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card 
-Use the biggest Labels Collection die cut as a template on the front flap, and trace the design with a pencil. Cut along your pattern with scissors (you can not run this through the Big Shot because it is too wide, but also because running it through will cut out the whole label, and you only want half of a label to serve as the front of your card)
-Using the paper piercing kit, pierce along the edge of your cut card flap. 
-Run a piece of Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot using the third largest label die (you should have used the largest to trace your flap design. 
-Choose one of the floral images from the Inkadinkadoo stamp set, color it with Primrose Petals, Bashful Blue, Lucky Limeade and Concord Crush Stampin' Markers, and stamp the image twice on your white die cut piece. 
-Color one of the flowers from the Posy Punch stamp set with Primrose Petals and Concord Crush Stampin' Markers. Punch it out using the fancy flower punch. Attach it to your white label piece using a Stampin' Dimensional. 
-Attach your white label piece to the front flap of your card using Snail tape. Trim the top edge that will be hanging over. 
-On Whisper White card stock, Stamp Happy Mother's Day, using the Primrose Petals Stampin' Marker and the stamp from the Something to Celebrate stamp set. 
-Trim your Mother's Day piece into a strip and cut a triangle out of the end to give it a banner look. Using Snail tape, attach this to a piece of Lucky Limeade and trim to make a border.
-Attach the finished Mother's Day "banner" to the front of the card, slipping it under your large flower.
