Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day.

Love to all you wonderful Mum's out there. 

This is the card that I made for my Mum.  I tried out a new technique.  This is a window swing card.  Not sure if that's the correct name for it.  Here's a couple of pics showing how it works. 

She was absolutely delighted with it.  To be truthful so am I! 

So here's the run down. 

Basic Black card base with a mat of Gold Foil.  Added a panel of Painted Petals Designer Series Paper (retired). 

Love these large blooms and just perfect for Mother's Day. 

Die cut a window using Window Framelits and set aside cut outs for later. 

Made the middle with Whisper White card stock folded into a Z fold.  Stamped a border around the edges with Painted Petals (retired).  Glued the right hand section to the card base. 

Used a smaller framelit to cut a Whisper White panel. Stamped a little flower arrangement. Sentiment is from Crazy About You.  Added a mat of Gold Foil trimmed using Paper Snips. 

Glued the cut out window pieces together.  Added the stamped panel.  With card closed and inside panel folded into a Z, glued the window cut out back into place through the open window. 

Added an extra sentiment panel along the bottom using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Attached flashes of Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon and tied off with thick Pistachio Bakers' Twine.

So there you have it.  Quite simple really, but so effective.  Great for those special occasions. 

If you are a Mum, Granny or a Mum to be, hope you are sitting having breakfast in bed whilst reading this! 
Have a lovely day. xx
