Today I made a card for a very special lady - my mom. She's turning 80 this year and it's impossible to believe that she still goes to the gym everyday, has parties, drives a sports car and talks to her kids all the time, is turning 80. Well, I did see a lady who was 96 and running marathons, so there ya go! My mom's still got it!
We are all going to her favorite restaurant in LA called Lawry's Prime Rib where she loves to eat her wonderful beef dinner with all the trimmings: creamed spinach, potatoes and the salad they make at the table, spinning the bowl while they pour on the dressing. Not a lo-cal meal! ;~)
I used a beautiful stack of paper from DCWV called Lemon Flower Stack - so gorgeous! There are lots of sparkly pages and the colors make for perfect cards.
|Here's how the card opens - I cut out 3 of the shaped card, one with the flowery patterned paper, one with the silver polka dots and one more in green to decorate the inside.|
|I added a caption from a stamp set from Michael's - the clear polymer was a bit too flexible, however, and didn't make as clean an impression as I would have liked. I just added a little color to dress it up! Oh, and a flower.|
|A few rhinestones on the cake trim - the more bling the better!|
Peachy Keen faces are great with all the little animal faces in the Cricut cartridges. You just need a Gypsy and use the Hide Contour feature. I use it all the time!
Have a great Sunday!
