Mother's Day is rapidly approaching! It is hard to believe that May is almost here. Wow, this year is truly flying by! This year I want to do something really "special" for Mom. No matter what I make she always raves about it! Funny... she raved about my lopsided coloring I brought home in Kindergarten. My mother always appreciates gifts from the heart and that is why I wanted to do something a little unusual this year. Today's card is dimensional... and will require an extra large envelope.
I created the fan by cutting 3 strips of 2 X 12 inch designer paper. I then scored them at 1/4" intervals carefully folding each (gable style). I then adhered each strip end to end. I then used scor-tape to adhere the final two ends together. I then glued the fan to a piece of card stock. I used a hot glue gun to accomplish this so there would be little movement. To cover the center I cut images from the Cricut Paper Lace cart and added them to the top. The ribbon I used is actually seam binding by Stampin' Up (thanks again Barb!) which I bunched up tightly overnight to give that "wrinkled" look. Thanks as always for reading. I look forward to sharing some more creations with you in the coming days!
