Mother's Day with Sandi

I decided to make a Trifold card for Mother’s Day. I found this lace edge pattern in the Make The Cut Library and welded two together to create this pretty ribbon. I then created a shadow image which I cut out with white cardstock and used as the base. I sprayed the pink cardstock with Shimmerz Ruby Spritz before gluing it to the base. I glued pearls to the center using Tim Holtz Glossy Accents.

I used the Plantin School Book Cartridge to create the words which I welded together using Design Studio. I sprayed them with Shimmerz Ruby Spritz and once the spray was dry, I added Diamond Stickles. I had a quilling book for a few years and always wanted to try quilling and decided now was the time. I used regular card stock and cut it into 1/8 inch strips. The pink petals are very pretty when they unwind the way they are meant to.

Before I quilled the leaves I ran the cardstock through a crimper for an interesting effect.

I cut the butterfly using the Home Décor Cricut Cartridge and I added Diamond Stickles. I used Kaiser Scrapbook paper flowers which I colored with Copic Ciao Marker R20 Blush and embellished with self adhesive pearls by Kaisercraft.

I created the white background with the Martha Stuart Lattice Punch. The trick is to cut the white paper ¼ inch wider to make up for what is cut off using the punch.

I’m really pleased with the soft dainty look of this card.
