Sunday is Mother's day in the U.S. Happy day to all those moms, aunts, cousins and grandmas. Hope your day is filled with lovely memories.
"For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother."
This was Jesus speaking as he was talking to the people about their spiritual relationships. We are in the family of God if we believe in Jesus as our Savior. Of course a relationship with our mom is one of the most special and treasured. I hope you will honor your mom this weekend in whatever way you feel appropriate, even though she has passed on.
Cards I have made---
This first one should have been on the last post as it is my Easter card this year. I came across the punch technique on Pinterest and YouTube so wanted to try it. These punches are Martha Stewart corner & edge punch. Using text weight paper fold in half the long way and then a little ways from the top fold over again. At the intersection of all the folds, insert into the corner punch and punch. Unfold the top fold and then use the edge punch matching up with where the corner punch left off. Unfold and you have a cross!
This week I had the opportunity to teach a class at our local scrapbooking store: Urban Paper. Since I was on the trend of using the double sided paper, that was the theme of the class also. The same box was made along with the frame card.
Here is the frame card made with the card stock chosen for this project. In the middle instead of a button is a die cut from a Spellbinders die set.
This is the dahlia style folded card. There are a couple ways to fold these,but went with the most simple. The trim at the bottom is done with Martha Stewart Deco Fan edge punch.
This is the card I sent for Mother's Day . The doily and inset are Spellbinders Vintage Doily dies and the butterflies are MS Monarch butterflies. The edge is just using a white gel pen to make stitches.
Hope you found something new to try or maybe revisit and use your own ideas. Thanks for looking. Have a wonderful weekend.
