Mother's Day Card and some Scrapbooking

As promised I'm showing you today the card we made on Friday at my Sale-A-Bration party.

I was telling the ladies that the inspiration for the middle panel came from seeing a glass jewellery box on display in Marks & Spencer for Mother's Day.  They are all going in to check!  Probably looks nothing like the original as it was from memory.  Next time I'll take a photo when I see inspiration.  Wonder what the staff would think? 

Onto the card.  This could be a Mother's day card or a birthday.  We used the Label Collections Framelits to die cut some Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.  We then embossed the Pink Pirouette with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  The frame was popped up on Dimensionals.  We then had fun stamping the middle pieces using stamps from 4 stamp sets.  The bird cage has some paper piercing to hang it from.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched out using the Word Window Punch then attached to a Modern Label punch out.  A small Basic Rhinestone finishes it off. 

This second card was shown as a simpler example. 

Next we made a 6" by 6" scrapbook page using stamps, Designer Series Papers and the little punch from this years Sale-A-Bration.  

I've listed the supplies below.

It was wonderful to see the different variations that everyone came up with.  They were all fantastic even though no-one had scrapbooked before.  I now need to make this up into a 12" by 12" page to go into our New York album.  We are sitting in Central Park in case you are wondering.

Lastly a big Hi to Morag thanks for following my little blog!  Hope you have all had some crafty fun this weekend.  xx

Lovely card at the top, very clever idea, it looks especially good with the honeycomb ef. I love it when things in shops inspire you to make something. I see lots of things now where I think I'm not going to buy it, I'm going to make my own version instead!
