Happy Thursday friends! We hope you’re enjoying the beautiful Mother’s Day projects from our design team this week. Today we thought it would be fun to throw it back to a favorite Mother’s Day blog project from last year by design team member, Chantalle McDaniel. Check out her incredible interactive Mother’s Day Card, video included!
Hello We R fans and thank you for stopping in today. With a special day on the calendar fast approaching, I’d like to share a card that I created using the beautiful new Flower Girl collection. It would be perfect for your Mum or someone special you would like to show your appreciation to.
While the idea for this card has been seen before (find a link to create your own here) the way in which you use your supplies and embellish it can make for a stunning and unique gift. I’ve used a combination of Bazzill cardstock for the base and the pretty floral prints of Flower Girl ‘Bouqet’ and ‘Rose Bud’ for the sleeve and inner tray lining.
The inner tray and outer sleeve were created using my Envelope Punch board. Now, you might be thinking this is way too complex for you to give it a go, but I promise, it was surprisingly easy to put together.
The little tray pulls out to reveal a pop up surprise. This effect is achieved by three small rows of folded cardstock which have been embellished using Flower Girl ephemera and stickers. I thought it would be a cute idea to add in some ’grass’ to compliment the flora and fauna. I used some DIY Party Fringe Tape in ‘Meadow’ and adhered a strip to the front of each row. I then used a very sharp pair of scissors to snip the squared off fringe in a haphazard fashion, creating the blades of grass.
Towards the back of the tray there is enough to stash a small present like some chocolates, a gift card or a voucher. (You can adjust this area by spacing your rows a little further apart or closer together.)
The sleeve can also be kept on the base, with the pop up elements on display in front. I’ve used a wreath shape ephemera on the top of the sleeve, along with two super cute pieces of Flower Girl wood veneer. The word ‘Mom’ was actually the word ‘moment’ from the Flower Girl accents sticker pack. I’ve snipped off the rest of the word and popped it on with a bit of foam tape.
That cute spring is thanks to bits of acetate I’ve used to back the ephemera.
Here’s a look at this fun interactive card in action:
I hope you will give this idea a go. It’s such fun to create and even more fun to receive!
