Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons, Pretty Happy Mother’s Day!

(If you’re looking for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Oh, Snap! blog hop – click here for my post!)

Hi! I couldn’t have a post today without paying tribute to all the moms out there, whether you have a human baby/child or a fur baby, moms do so much to care for others – they all deserve a big hug, especially today! My mom is my crafty inspiration! She is an amazing crafter who has done so many different things over the course of her life – I have very fond memories of so many of her crafty creations!

So, it’s my day to share a project over at the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog and I couldn’t resist using Lisa’s Mother’s Day Cards Cutting Files along with my mom’s favorite color (purple)! Here’s what I created:

And, yep, I thought it’d be fun to make it a shaker card – I will admit, that idea would have been easier to accomplish if I would have cut the background oval the same size as the sentiment oval, but I was able to get it to work and voila, a celebration of Mother’s Day that is even more fun, hehe!

Here are some detail pictures:

And here’s a picture of the sequins when the card is lying down:

Well, I don’t want to keep you from your Mother’s Day celebration. I hope you’re enjoying a wonderful day!

Happy crafting! (And if you didn’t see the blog hop from yesterday, be sure to check that out, starting at Lisa’s blog! Lots of inspiration, a free cut file and some blog candy are available!)

Creative Cutting Challenge – Mother’s Day

This is a project that was so much fun from start to finish!

I really felt The Creative Point’s World’s Best Mom file needed some special treatment:

I felt like this was an award that needed to be displayed. I will also confess to having the best time creating interactive and dimensional cards. There are so many fun designs available right now and I decided the Free Standing Pop-up card that Splitcoast Stampers shared back in 2008 would be perfect. What I love about these cards is that they will fold down into a regular envelope making it all the more magical in my book!

It’s like Super Man in the phone booth! You can tell that something great is about to happen, but you don’t know what!

 

This is what you see when you pull the card out. I suppose you could put a sentiment on the top section. I just chose to decorate what will be the front with a ribbon and a couple of fun swirly flowers.

This is what you see when you pull the card out. I suppose you could put a sentiment on the top section (or use patterned paper or stamp a design .) I just chose to decorate what will be the front with a ribbon and a couple of fun swirly flowers.

I used the Flower Set 1 to add some fun embellishments! That set is such a great overall fun set to use!

And here's the complete Stand-up card!

And here’s the complete Stand-up card!

I wanted to keep things fairly flat so that it would all fold up nicely so I didn’t use any dimensional embellishments or adhesive. I will say that the ribbon is rather bulky. The cardstock I used from Close to My Heart wasn’t heavy enough to balance all the layers on the tag that has the sentiment on it so when I make this again, I’ll be looking for a way to make the base heavier so that it stands up on it’s own easily (I actually put a wood stamp inside the back half to get it to look nice for my photos.)

But what a fun way to celebrate someone who is the World’s Best Mom! I know a number of them and can see a whole flock of these heading out into the mail!

I sure hope you’ll play along with The Creative Cutting Challenge – Mother’s Day! So head on over to the blog and link up your creation! I can’t wait to see what you create!
