Card for Mom

I made a card for my Mom for mother's day...  she really enjoys them much more than the store bought ones

This card is was made with scraps (My Mind's Eye, Fancy Pants, & Prima)
I stitched all the layers to a 4-1/2 x 6" piece of kraft paper.

I stockpile the tiny type letters they are perfect for cards that I don't necessarily have the right sentiment stamp for plus I LOVE the look especially with stitches at the bottom.


Layers of border punched strips along with a small piece of lace trim.  The addition of "ancient" K & Company flowers with buttons & a twine bow add lots of interest & texture.

Hope you had a great weekend & took some time to be creative...
