Mother's Day idea

There are a bunch of new dies that were just released from Sizzix and are in the stores now. This box is a scoreboard die and is called "box with scalloped flap". It is a lot bigger than the business card box. You can probably put a bunch of gift cards in it for your mom for a Mother's Day gift. I cut the roses out of felt from a new die called "3-D flowers". The green label die cut is a cut out piece from the ornate box die. I embossed it with the animal print embossing folder.
Here's a close up of the rose. It was real easy to make the rose. I used a bamboo skewer to make it.Here is the pocket card that we made this past Saturday for the make & take at the store. We used Tim Holtz dies to decorate the card. It's kind of a different look for me but I am liking the vintagy distressed look these days.
Before I forget, I will be at the Ben Franklin Crafts Kailua store this week Saturday, April 24th
from 10-12 pm doing a make & take for their annual paper party celebration. I hope you can come and join us because there will be a lot of make & takes going on throughout the day and prizes too. And everyone who comes to my table will get a free die, actually 2 in the package. But you have to make the project. Hope to see you there!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great Monday!!!
