Pull out Flower Pot Mothers Day Card. C4C483

This is week two of my Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. I was originally asked to be a guest designer for the month of May, but I have recently been asked to join their design team permanently ๐Ÿ™‚ I am really looking forward to being part of this very creative group of women, and the challenge posts will be posted every Saturday.

This weeks challenge was to make a Mother’s Day card with Flowers. I was thinking back to flower cards that I have made in the past and I came across a style that was popular a few years back where the flowers pull out from the flower pot, revealing the greeting (Pic at bottom of post). They were fairly easy to make but if your measurements were slightly off then the flower pot would be crooked, I thought that I would try using the Woven Basket Pop up die set from Karen Burniston and I am happy to say it turned out better than expected.

Purple Bouquet

I have another Thankyou Card that I created using a brand new die set, Karen Burnistons “Woven Basket Box Pop Up.” It makes a really cute basket, that can fold flat and fit into an envelope for mailing. I actually made a few of these this past weekend they are kind of addicting.

Black & Bright Accordion Card

Accordion cards are so fun to make and make an impressive card to give. This one was a 16th Birthday card that I made my daughter. That’s her cute little baby photo on the inside.

Thinking of You-Daisy Card (the original)

So a few weeks ago I posted a daisies easel card, in that post I mention that I made a card that I couldn’t post because my friend hadn’t received it yet and I didn’t want to give away the surprise but I posted a different card that was inspired by the original card that a different friend of mine wanted for a friend of hers. Well this is the original card, lol that was not confusing at all ๐Ÿ™„

“Pink Black-Eyed Susan” ๐ŸŒบ Birthday card

Well, I have another fun technique today, Believe it or not, the stamp used for this card is a silhouette stamp, not a lined detail stamp. It was pretty easy to add the colour and a little bit of detail to make these flowers look like they were hand painted as opposed to stamped. This is a technique that I learned quite a few years ago when I used to be a Stampin’ UP demonstrator. It gives a much different look to stamps you may already have in your stash.

“Thinking of You” Daisy Card

So this card came about because I made a different card….. it’s funny how one thing leads to another. I made a fairly similar card a couple weeks back for a friend that I thought might need a little pick me up, and I showed it to another friend. This friend decided that she also has a friend that might need a little pick me up and asked if I could make her one as well. Well, I’m pretty sure my first friend hasn’t gotten hers yet so I don’t want to post her card online yet and I don’t think my friend’s friend follows my blog sooooo I decided to post hers first. LOL, are you able to follow ๐Ÿ™‚ anyway here goes?
