It’s time to start making those wonderfully fun and floral cards for all the special mothers in our lives.

For this card I let the patterned paper do most of the work!  Love these yellow and black blooms.  A Copic  was used to color the primas on the stamped flowers.  Pearls dot the centers.  All the stamped images are popped up on foam tape including the black stamped frame and sentiment strip.  What fun!

Happy Spring!   Happy Mother’s Day!   Happy Crafting!

Here is a quick and easy gift card holder design.  I’ve made these for Christmas giving, but a birthday or other occasion sentiment could just as easily be stamped and different patterned papers used.

Speaking of stamping, one of my most favorite stamping tools is my Stamparatus.  The sentiment on all of these cards had to be positioned only one time.  I could then stamp all the cards so fast and so easily with perfectly aligned/straight sentiments.  I’m not a Stampin’ Up demonstrator any more, but I still recommend this tool.  Love it!

A metal tab holds the card closed.  To open the card, just turn the tab.

Here’s a template if you want to give it try.

Oh and if you do decide to make this card holder design, be sure to attached the brad and tab before taping the sides of the card holder pocket.  (Believe me as I speak from experience, it’s much harder to put on the brad after the sides have been taped!)

Happy Crafting!

Every once in awhile I just have to make a card with lots of layers and lots of patterned paper.  Today was such a day!

The butterfly and the popped up layers add some dimension.

It’s hard to see in the above pictures, but the black layer was embossed for even more texture.

So many layers + So much patterned paper = So much fun!! 

Happy Crafting!
