I hope that all you Mom's out there had a terrific day yesterday and that you were spoiled as you surely deserve to be. In celebration of the day I had a lovely lunch and then a fantastic dinner spending loads of time with many of the important 'Mom's' in my life.
Before we move on to other things though, I just needed to share one more Mother's Day card - the one that I made for my Mom! Here it is - it's another Easel Card (I just love these!)
Now, I can't take credit for this one entirely, because I had a little help. First off, the card was cased from a fellow CTMH consultant, the very talented Eileen Murray and she ever so kindly pointed me in the direction of the tutorial (below) for creating the paper roses. So I'm also giving a big shout out to Tonya Dirk who was kind enough to post her paper rose tutorial on YouTube for us all to see.
These roses look complicated at first, but please do give the tutorial a view and you'll see just how easy they are to make ~ and I'm not embellishing at all here. In fact, I made my first one and then immediately after walked my 8 year old daughter through her own attempt - and she rocked it! I did have to help her out a wee bit, but for the most part, she did the job solo.
The only thing that I did differently than Tonya was that I trimmed off the bulky back of the roses before I adhered them to my card (with a glue dot). As it is now, the card still won't fit in an envelope safely and this is not a 'mailer' for sure, but it definitely has big impact.
Here's the tutorial.
I didn't see Tonya's original post at the Bo Bunny blog about this wreath, but was super curious to take a peak after watching this video, so if you're as interested as I was you can find that post here.
Have a great day!
