In Honor of Mothers the world over a Card file to share
This is a example of the card I gave to my Mother for Mother's Day this year. I started with a white card base 4 3/4 inches by 6 1/2 inches ( 12 cm by 16.5 cm). The cutting files has 4 files. The first one is the base card which is the light pastel green cardstock from the pastel pack 4 which is scored and folded on the 8 inch mark and on the 4 inch mark. Then start with A slot being inserted in the other A slot. Repeat with B and C slots. Next cut the matting cardstock file which I cut out of pastel pink vellum. The Cascade card matting pattern file is cut out of a pale pink sweet pea pattern on the light tan background (the paper I used is from Busy Scrapper's Solution Wedding & Romance 1. The six tall thin pieces with angled tops are matted on the vellum and then placed on each of the outer cascading card, then mat the house shape on the vellum house shape. Place the house shape on the front. The foil paper tole used in the front of the cascade card is Art Nouveau 1. Take the flowers and brush a watercolour made of an small amount of 1 part green patina perfect pearls 2 and 1.5 part water to all the outer edges on the lace flowers
part to you card base take three scraps of paper 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches and score it along the 2 inch side at 1/2 inch and at 3/4 inch and fold in a c shape and then attach to each side and the base. Then attach to the centered card base. This will give the cascading part the space to move and pop forward. Now at thefront of the cascading base add a small scrap of green cardstock measured to support the front of the card so it will stand up. We are now ready to make the Title tag print the word document and then tape the green title tag centered on the and reprint it so the words line up well. Now mat it on the title tag vellum. and place on the card front. I used some of the border from the stacked oval stickers 1 on the base of the title tag and up on side. Inside is a strip of vellum, pattern paper and a border. Everywhere I used the border I added a few drops of liquid pearl 2 in the pattern.
