MOTHER'S DAY SET

This is a set I made last week, and it combines the Envelope Mini Scrapbook with a card and a decorated tin for goodies. I used several different sheets of the Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper to make it all coordinate.


The cardstock is Not Quite Navy, Kraft (soon to be Crumb Cake), and Very Vanilla. The stamp sets used on the card are Vintage Vogue, For All You Do (inside sentiment), and All Holidays (Happy Mother's Day).

Along with making a belly band for the tin (which I ordered from the US), I glued a 1/2" strip of DSP around the bottom:


You can fill it with candies, or note cards, a lovely silk scarf, or whatever else you like!

The card is made with a 'Z fold' (I think that's the proper term - please correct me if I'm wrong.)

And because I didn't have Kraft ink I used the Sahara Sand marker to ink up the ivy type stamp. I love the Vintage Vogue stamp set because it is so versatile, and by using different colours and different stamp combinations you feel like you have 20 stamps instead of eight.

The inside of the card has a Very Vanilla section to the left where you can write your special message, while the main part has the lovely sentiment from For All You Do - perfect for a Mom!

The Not Quite Navy oval is made with the Big Shot and the Ovals die (largest of the three), the sentiment was punched out with the Curly Label punch.

Hope you like it - if so please leave a message.
