Mother's Day Card

Here's a Mother's Day Card I made this afternoon.
It uses Karen Burniston's Sizzix Accordion Flip Album die, and the accompanying Frame and Label die. I used Cricut Base Camp cartridge for the lettering, and embossed each letter with a Cuttlebug folder.
For the flowers I used a couple of Tim Holtz's different Tattered Floral dies, and cut them from velum, and Basic Grey's Curio 6x6 papers, and inked them up with distress ink. I also used Tim Holtz's Kraft Resist idea-ology papers, and his On the Edge Pennants die, plus a couple of Melissa Frances embellishments.
I'm putting it into Basic Grey Challenges' 'Anything Goes' challenge, Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals challenge, and the Southern Girls Challenge blog, who's theme is 'Waving in the Breeze'.


  1. You make me need better adjectives! This. Is. Amazing!

  2. This is a work of art!! Awesome

  3. Helen....uh....WOW! At a loss for words. This is wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Can you give me the order numbers on the two dies for the frame and the flip die please? I have the flower die. I'd love to try to figure this out. I'm dying to do a card like this with lots of butterflies....don't know why. I just keep seeing butterflies. It is probably the cluster of all your flowers that give me the idea. Thanks again for letting us peek into your creative life and thanks for inspiring me.

    1. Thank you! Oooo - a butterflies version sounds gorgeous!!
      I don't actually own the dies, as they are out of stock everywhere here, but on one website I looked at, the info is: 658035 (Album, Accordion Flip 3-D) and 658037 (Frame & Label, Bracket), both Sizzix Bigz dies, by Karen Burniston. I don't know if these numbers are just specific to that shop, or the Sizziz order numbers, but hopefully you can find them.
