Fancy Mother's Day Card



Hi, this is Joy and today's card is a square 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" folded Mother's Day card. I made it using the Mother's Day Mini Cartridge and the Songbird cartridge.

But wait! You need to know what we are giving away today!

Today's giveaway are the 3 Cake cartridges (Elegant, Birthday and Holiday)! Subscribe and leave a comment below for a chance to win! Remember we are giving away something different everyday and our GIGANTIC PRIZE will be announced on Saturday in honor of National Scrapbook Day!

And, for those of you just tuning in, here is a recap of this week's prizes:

Sunday:  Embellishment Pack from Anna Griffin
Monday: An Assortment of Heidi Swapp Goodies
Tuesday: A "You Pick One" Cartridge
Wednesday: A Straight From the Nest Cartridge
Thursday: A "You Pick One" cartridge and an Anna Griffin prize pack

To win, leave comments under each day's post (click on day of week above to go there) for a chance to win that item.  Also, sign up for our email or follow us!  That's it!

Now onto the card info:



This card was made using paper from Anna Griffin's Isabelle line of paper and Coredinations cardstock. The frame is from the Songbird cartridge (frame3) and is cut at 4-1/4" with a shadow also.  I ran the frame though the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder.


The emblem is from the Mother's Day cartridge and it is cut at 3-1/2" regular and shadow features.  I think this is such a gorgeous cut and so easy to layer since it's just two parts.  I will be using this cut again!


I always like to add something to the inside and I had this cut from Monday's post (test cut) so I popped it into the card.

Join us tomorrow for Wendy's fabulous creation and our big giveaway announcement!  You won't want to miss it!!
