Mother's Day Card

What, two posts in one day.......
This is a card I made today for my mum. I have a Cuttlebug and need to use it more than I do. A little while ago I came across ikki's blog and it is the best thing I ever did. Ikki is passionate about sharing her knowledge of just what a Cuttlebug can do with step by step tutorials. Ikki creates the most amazing cards.........that's where I got inspiration for this one.

I wont tell you that I made a mistake when using the debossing technique, I like the two score lines down the side instead of the bottom lol. I don't have a die for hearts (YET) so I made my own from a piece of cereal box. If anyone would like to know how, just leave a comment and I will get back to you. I mounted the embossed hearts on pink CS which I cut out using my nifty fancy scissors. Finished off with a pink satin ribbon and a touch of Kindy Glitz.


I added an inner page by printed out a message on vellum, trimmed the side edges with my nifty fancy scissors and embossed a little floral strip down the left hand side. So........if you have a moment, go check out ikki's blog. There is plenty to inspire you and you could even learn a thing to two.

Cheers, Irene :)

Irene, you have done my tutorial proud, the card shows your own individuality and creativity - you've used the tools and made it your own! I like the inside of your card very much, the border is a nice touch. Your card actually touched me a great deal, I no longer have a Mum and that you would want to make this for your Mum is really lovely. Thanks for your support. ikki xx
