Mother All Flowers Remind Me of You

I had an extra daffodil I had embossed and colored for my last project sitting on my desk, and since my mother looked forward to them each spring, it made sense to create a Mother’s Day card with it.

You can make this too!

Measurements:  
Pear Pizzazz cardstock: 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼” for card base
Fresh Freesia and Vellum cardstock: 3-1/2” x 4-3/4”
Basic White: 3-3/4” x 5”
Seam Binding ribbon: 14”

Instructions:
1. Emboss the Fresh Freesia card stock with Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. 
2. Using white ink and embossing powder, heat emboss the daffodil bunch in bottom right corner of vellum card stock and greeting on top left corner of Fresh Freesia card stock. Rip the top right corner of vellum away, being careful not to tear through embossed daffodils. 
3. Turn the vellum card stock over and color image with Stampin’ Blend markers.
4. Adhere Fresh Freesia layer to White card stock. Line up vellum over Freesia and use Take Your Pick took to pierce holes in the 3 corners to insert small white round brads through. 
5. Tie ribbon around the layers, then adhere to front of card with dimensionals.

March (Paper Pumpkin) Madness

My March Paper Pumpkin kit came in the mail yesterday and so I pushed EVERYTHING aside to create (and by that I mean I literally shoved things off my desk and onto the floor…)

It was my goal to use EVERY. SINGLE. PIECE. in the kit and I am proud to say “Mission Accomplished”!

I posted them over on my Creative Juice Facebook page individually, but here’s a collage to inspire your own creativity:

For one of the gift card holders, I made it into a Mother’s Day coupon book (lots of free printable coupons out there, but the one I used was from I Should Be Mopping the Floor and just printed them in B&W, two sheets to a page so I could cut and bind them in the middle. 

Not a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber yet? Don’t miss another one (especially not the April kit, which will include a FREE GIFT to celebrate the 3rd birthday of Paper Pumpkin!):

I’m off to pick up the floor in my office now…
