Sorry about the picture quality – I have some learning to do to get my photos just right :). Here is the card I made for a new monthly card swap I’m participating in. It’s with my upline demonstrator and the demonstrators in her downline. This month, the theme is a card for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. I can’t wait to receive my cards from fellow demonstrators!
I used my new Movers & Shapers die to create the card base in a snap. The die cuts and scores a standard A2 card and you can select from a variety of “windows” that also have coordinating punches that fit within the window. Such a cool idea!
After I created the card base, I wasn’t sure what to do with the front of the card, but I couldn’t get my mind off a weave pattern using paper. So I used coordination designer series paper and cuts strips in varying widths and assembled the pieces to fit around the window. I added some additional Spring colors for the flower and the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment. Thanks for looking!
