Are you ready for Mother's Day yet?
Here is a quick card and favour to make.
The window in the middle was made using the awesome Everywhere Punch with the circle cartridge.
The butterflies are the Flit On By squeeze punch. The flower is from the Flowers-1 Shape Template - for the top one, I cut out the flower then punched out the centre using the Everywhere Punch, so that the petals had the perfect curve to frame the window, just gave them a curl with a wooden skewer for dimension.
The centre of the flower with the sentiment inside the card was punched out using my XL Round 'n Round squeeze punch - the 2" was the perfect size to fit and fill the window.
Here is a pretty favour to go with the card, filled with tasty chocolates.
This is an easy peasy party favour to make - cut a 6" square of heavy paper, put strong adhesive along the bottom and one side, secure sides to make a tube then flatten the base (with the join in the middle of the back), take your embossing stylus and Lines Texture Plate to run 3-4 parallel lines across the base to make it more secure. Take your tube, fold the top in the opposite direction, punch a hole using a circle plier punch, insert some treats (or maybe some earings, necklace or pretty hanky) then tie in place with some ribbon or secure with a brad. The flower decorating the front was made by layering Oopsie Daisy squeeze punch flowers and rolling the petals.
Hope you have fun making some crafty gifts for Mother's Day and get to spend some time with the ones you love :)
