This year I made two totally different Mothers Day cards, the first one again used the blended ink background technique that I have been experimenting with and is very similar to the notelet card I made earlier.
To dress it up a bit I made a card blank from two pieces of cream card, the first was about 17 x 11cm and I made the fold about 3 or 4cm from the end of this piece, I used an edge punch to decorate the short edge. The second piece of card was cut to the same size as the long side of the first piece. I punched a couple of holes in the decorative flap and threaded ribbon through and tied a bow. I stuck the second piece of card to the back of the short flap to cover the ribbon and give a neat inside to the card.
The background is the same as for the notelet card and I used the same Grass Stems stamp for the image. I used a Mothers Day sentiment stamp this time and decorated the flower heads with gold adhesive metal embellishments. This was all mounted on to brown card and then onto the card front.
