This morning I remembered that it is Mother's Day in the UK on the 15th March, here in Canada it is not until May 10th. However, as my mother-in-law lives in the UK, I thought I better get one made, so that I can pop it in the post tomorrow :-)
I have a new fold for you today, the great tutorial I followed can be found HERE, at Marianne's blog Mariannes Papirverden - I did change the measurements a little and will give you those below :-)
Here is the card I made this morning, once again using the wonderful Rose Budd Papercrafting CD Collection.
Everything is from this wonderful CD, well that is accept the Mother's Day stamp (which is a See D's stamp from the Springtime Swirls set).
I changed the measurements slightly, in order to use an 8.5" by 11" card stock. My base measures 10.75" by 6". And then I scored at 2.75", 4.5", 6.25" and 8". Folding a valley fold, 2 mountain folds and another valley fold.
Excuse the little clip at the bottom of this photo, I wanted to show you the card closed up to put in an envelope. The finished size when closed is 3.75" by 6".
I inked all the edges of all the layers, after distressing them, with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink. I also added some Ranger Glossy Accents to the butterfly, and some little gold antennae.
The large oval was cut using the Spellbinders Pierced Ovals set. Some of the roses and the butterfly we placed on pop dots to add a little dimension.
I will be popping this in the post tomorrow, so that it will get to the UK in time for Mother's Day :-)
