Happy Mother's Day to you all!!!
Hi everyone and a very Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers out there. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day - I certainly am!! My DH started the day by helping my wonderful children make breakfast for me and then my mum, sisters and brother came for lunch and he made us a roast dinner. How nice it was!!!
Anyway, while he was doing all this, I made two of this mother's day card for his and my mum and my younger sister came over early and made one for her mother-in-law (she already had a card made for our mum and we couldn't give the same one could we LOL).
The photo is not very good and does not show the card properly but I am very pleased with how it turned out (at first I thought I went over-board) - I have adapted an idea from a card my sister-in-law got at convention. It was Very Vanilla cardstock folded with the rose stamped and cut around but then I have added more to it. I have started by adding another flap and trimming on the end. You can't see it but I have stamped the full leaf in VersaMark over the inner flap, also behind the rose on the top flap. I have then stamped "For You" in Pale Plum all over the inner flap also. I also finally had a go at making a scallop edge with my slit punch - so easy!!
ALL STAMPIN' UP PRODUCTS USED!!!

I have also recently got a Bone Folder - It's one of those small things that you always think you don't really need but once you have one you wonder why you didn't get it straight away - It really makes a huge difference!!!
Ps: The wrapped box was DH's mother's gift - I made a origami box and lid (tutorial off SCS - adapted to fit the gift) Sorry, not Stampin' Up products there.
