Card for Mum

Hi Guys!

Sorry about my brief absence, I’ve been away for a few days as it was my Mum’s Birthday and I went down for a visit but I’m back and ready to plough on with my Christmas projects.

I thought I’d share the card I made for my Mum with you, it is an accordion card with a layered sentiment, I placed one word on each panel. When the card is closed the words are all in order and appear to be on the same level but when it’s opened the card forms a sort of tunnel with each word a step back from the last.

If this cut file would be useful to anyone please let me know as I haven’t made it ready for sharing because it is a bit specific.

    It’s lovely! Perhaps if you offered the file with several alternatives for numbers? My own mother is well past 60 at this point. Even MIL has passed this benchmark! I really like the idea of the acetate layers. Brilliant!

    WOW! Your talent is awe inspiring!

    This is absolutely stunning!

    Your choice of the softly muted background printed paper, the delicate looking seam binding and the fanciful lettering made this card come together in such a soft and feminine way. I know your mother had to just adore her card.

    One question, could you please tell me what font you used for the 60th and Mum?

  12. Kpiierce

    I would love this file. It is stunning. I am sure your mom loved the card. If you tell me the font I might be able to change the 60 to other years for more versatility but not necessary info.
