Happy Mother's Day!

Hello fellow Stampers and Paper Crafters!

I wanted to quickly share the card and gifts I made for my Mom Perry (my first Husbands Mom).  I'm still very close to my In-Laws and she is my only remaining Mother so I wanted to make it extra special!  

Now, I know I've used this card design before but I just love it and that's the great thing about using paper crafting and card making tools...all you have to do is change the color scheme and designer paper and you have an entirely different project!!!  I've used Marina Mist Ink, Card Stock and Beau Chateau dsp (retiring May 31st) in addition to Embosslits, Punches and Embossing folders to create this beautiful card. 

Below, I took a plain white lunch bag, trimmed the top and used the SU Scallop Edge Border punch to make a pretty decorative edge then folded top over and applied a cute butterfly (Sizzix Embosslit) and pearl embellishment. (later I added a tiny clothespin to keep it closed).  I used a large wood clothespin, added dsp and Owl Builder Punch for a way for her to keep notes or an important picture.  Finally, I also used my new Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and matching punch to make a cute note card set.

Ok, folks gotta run...I've been very busy on a craft room project and until I finish I am limited on the projects I can do...I promise, I'll share it all when I'm done!
