A card for my Mum

Hey Guys :)

It was Mothers Day here in the UK yesterday and this is the card I made for my Mum, it was quite a dimensional card that certainly wouldn’t fit into an envelope so I made a box-type envelope for it which I will make a little picture tutorial for very soon.  The freebie I have for you today is a set of Doily Circles which can be used individually or layered as I did with my Mums card, I can envisage tons of uses for these including shaped cards, matting layers, sentiment frames etc.

I cut and stitched my backing layers then used my ruler to gauge how large I wanted my doily to be and cut both layers exactly the same size then stuck together with 3d foam pads. I cut a sentiment from textured card to match my patterned paper and stuck down the the middle of my doily. I cut several of the 5 petal flower from Flowers 3 and formed into rose shapes then tucked some leaf shapes from Branches 1 behind the roses. I added a bead spray of glass beads and pearls to the flowers which I made following the brilliant luvleescrappin‘s tutorial, I’ve been wanting to use these on cards for a while now and this was the perfect card to add one to.

    Very beautiful card Bird. Your mum is really lucky! I loved the hand wrapping card. My son and daughter in law were married with a Medieval ceremony. This would have been a great card for that! Maybe I’ll try it for their anniversary. TFS
