Mother's Day

I have had these memory box window, shutter and flower box dies almost since I began card making in 2011 and I have never used them.   I wanted to make a special card for my MIL --- She is an absolutely gem. She is kind, loving and one of the nicest people you will ever meet.





So, I finally got them out and began to put her card together.  She loves pink.   The flowers are Sticker Trendz  border stickers. I cut them apart to fit my flower box.  The window is three layers thick, with two layers of vellum sandwiched between the three layers.  One layer of vellum (lower most is colored blue with Copics.)

The shutters and the window box are also three layers thick so they are sturdy.  My card front panel is dry embossed with a Tim Holtz/Sizzix brick embossing folder then lightly inked with antique linen distress ink.

The entire front panel is mounted with fun foam onto a white card base.  I decided to leave the front sentiment free.

Thanks for stopping by...and Happy Mother's Day all of you who take care of others in one way or another.

  2. This is stunning! I have the dies (of course) but so rarely use them. I think the flower box scares me.
