Mother's Day Memory Folder and Card

Sometimes you need more than a card to express how much your mom means to you.  This beautiful little folder tells her five different ways, and it doubles as a hanging organizer to keep business and appointment cards, coupons, or little mementos.  The pockets are the perfect size for Project Life cards, so this can also be used as a Brag Book later.  Create a coordinating card and a napkin holder or gift box topper to make Mom’s day extra special.  This would make a fun “class with purchase” or a girls’ night out event.

Smile

What do you get when you combine some awesome scraps with a card base and a stamp? A really awesome card! 


I had this scrap of DSP from a previous project laying around on my table. At the time I was trying to use the ink pad directly onto the paper to get a nice smooth blend of color from lightest to darkest. Well the paper kept slipping or I dropped the ink pad and it tool three tries to get what I was looking for. I was frustrated and tossed the "bad" ones aside.

Well a couple weeks later after I got over my frustration I found these again on my work table when I realized how cool they looked. It's amazing what a few days without looking at something can do huh?

The chevron piece is actually a scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper. I was trying to get as many chevrons as possible out of this one strip and the remaining scrap that I would normally toss looked really neat so I combined those two pieces that were headed for the trash with a few more pieces and a greeting to make this fun card.


The greeting from Happy Day was stamped onto the DSP in Stazon ink. I used 2-Way Glue Pen to glue the chevron piece onto the left side of the DSP. That layer was glued onto a slightly larger piece of Night of navy card stock. Then that panel was added onto the Smoky Slate card front with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.


Finally I threaded some Whisper White Baker's Twine through the button and tied it into a bow. That was stuck onto the card with a Stampin' Dimensional. I also added a large Rhinestone onto the i in the greeting and added a spritz of Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Sprtiz to the card to give it some more sparkle.

Have you made anything lately from something that would have otherwise been thrown in the trash?
