This is year for Mother's Day I made my mom and my mother in law a special card. I made a creative fold card called pop and twist. Most of these type of cards have 4 panels on the inside of the card, but this one has 6. I would like to thank Lisa J for sharing her directions on how to make this card on Pinterest. They were wonderful!
I used some current, retiring and new products to make this card. On the front of the card you see the beautiful Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and the Daisy Punch from the new catalog.
The Organza Ribbon is on the retiring list, and all other products are in the current annual catalog, including Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White, both thick and regular, cardstock. The letters were made using the Large Letter Framelits.
It's that just the neatest thing, how it pops up when you open the card. I really wish you could see better how the colors compliment the designer series paper.
You will have to make your own envelope (I used our envelope punch board) as the finished size is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". I have a trick when making the envelope since this card is quite thick.
I put the card in the middle of the envelope and brought the two side flaps in and then adhered the bottom flap. This way you know you are making it the correct thickness you need for the card. This card will take extra postage if you are mailing it.
Over the weekend we were going over our schedule for the summer. It is going to be a busy, but fun summer. I am going to see my mom in Michigan and go on a wine tour with the ladies in my family. This is our third year doing it, and it is always so much fun. This year we are getting t-shirts made for the occasion.
My mom is known as the "party grandma" of the family. LOL Well, we wanted to include her in the t-shirts, even though she won't be able to go with us. So, my niece came up with the name "Party Grandma's Posse". I love it! Per my mother's request, they have to be blue like the water in the bay in Traverse City, MI. Once we get the t-shirts, I will have to post a picture.
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a happy hump day!
