Happy Mother’s Day …

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day so this special day called for a card for my mum :)


I started with a Kaisercraft square card as the base.


The Couture Creations Intricutz die background ‘Fans of Fantasia’ is perfect for a square card – even better framed. The die cut was 9.5cm x 9.5cm so the frame I cut was 11.5cm x 11.5xm with a 1cm border.


Under the framed die cut I went for a pink coloured paper (to match the fussy cut flowers) – American Crafts – Pebbles – Happy Go Lucky Collection – Delight.


On top of the framed die cut I added another die cut – a frame from Kaisercraft’s Ornate Pack 1.



I fussy cut some flowers from the ‘Roses’ paper from Kaisercraft’s Secret Garden Collection and added them on the card with foam squares.



To complete the look, I created the greeting using Carolee’s Creations – Adornit Tiny Black alphabet stickers and stuck them with foam squares.


Tip: To have your letters/words appearing straight, adhere the letters to acetate (which is placed on top of a self healing mat that has lines) and then cut around the letter/words.
