Wonderful Mother

                                                         Dt 041612

 Because I have THE best mother in the world, I wanted to make her an extra special card for Mother's Day. I just know there is a special mom, sister, aunt, grandmother in your life that would appreciate a card you fashioned especially for them. 
Get out your Cricut and some cardstock, and get ready to make a pot of flowers in no time.

Let’s Make a Card…

1) Cut heavy white card stock 9 x 3 1/2, score at 3 1/2 and 7 inches. Fold at the 7”score line and cut at an angle from the score line to 1/2” in at the bottom. Cut the other side the same. Fold down the small scored section. (It should now look like a flower pot). Edge punch the “rim” of the flower pot, distress ink, add twine and attach “rim” to pot with foam adhesive.
2) Cut white card stock 4 1/2 x 2 1/2, round corners. Cut a piece of maroon card stock just a bit smaller and attach. Stamp and heat emboss sentiment. Slide this into the top of the pot.

3) Cut a 1/4 inch strip from  heavy card stock, color with Silver gel pen. Stamp, heat emboss, distress ink and fussy cut the sentiment. Attach to the “floral card holder”and glue to insert.
4) Cut all different size flowers ( 1/2 inch to 1 inch) from white card stock and patterned paper with the Walk in My Garden cartridge. Color the white flowers with Copic markers. Dry emboss the back of all the flowers to give them a rounded/wrinkled look. Now attach the flowers to the top of the rim and the insert.
5) Die cut Spellbinders Flower Creations  2 times. Spray these flowers with Copic r22 mixed with alcohol, roll each piece into a ball, carefully unroll and heat set. Now glue all the pieces together in the center, starting with the largest piece first and gluing the smaller pieces on top. With embossing tool firmly press the center of the flower so the sides roll up a bit. Place a large dollop of glue in the center and along the petals, sprinkle with glitter. Attach this flower to the rim.
6) Stamp, color and fussy cut butterfly 2 times. Attach 2 butterfly's together with foam adhesive, then attach to the flowers.
7) Add liquid pearls and stickles as desired to give it a finished touch.
