Mother's Day

At the beginning of the year one of our Craftmad members sent to everyone her unfinished cards. (Pinterest album here for Finish a Card challenge) This is one I received, so made it up into a card for my mother in law.

The end result.  I found the lovely daisy patterned paper for the background.  Again put vellum behind the die cut and then layered that on purple card stock which I hand cut to shape.  I punched out plain vellum flowers and then coloured wiht copic pens to match the papers.  I am really happy with the end result and it was fun working with something that some else started and getting a good result.  I was on such a high that I tried the next unfinished card I was given but it was a lost cause.  The more I added to it the worse it got so it's in the bin with no photos taken.  Not all cards can be rescued. :-)

I used this Craftmad February sketch for my Mum's Mother's Day card. I also thought  this a good opportunity to try a pop up diorama card, tutorial here. 

The inside of the pop up diorama card.  This card lays flat when closed, so great for mailing.
