Challenge #31 Mother's Day Card

 

Mother's Day is the theme for this bi-weekly challenge at Platypus Creeks Digital and I created a Mother's Day Pocket Card as a slider card.  This is the face version of the card.

 

And this shows the inside of card where you write your special msg to your Mother, Mum or Mom.   

I placed the digi stamp from Platypus Creeks Digital Store into SCAL3 and created a svg file, saved it and than merged into my Silhouette Studio Design Edition for print and cut the flowers.  The pocket I created a small tab on one end, after copying the pocket, and welded together.  The sentiment and oval circles was created in SCAL3.  I embossed the front of the pocket and placed a ribbon on the one side and had this finished bow I had created using the bow making system.  Folded the tab and glued to the back side of the pocket.  The bottom of the pocket I left open...the slider card will not fall through.  

Actually, if I make this card again, I will weld a rectangle across the top where it's the shape of the flowers as the flowers will come down over it.  Mainly because the cut edges 'catch' on the flower section and slider card will not go down.  I highlighted the 'stitching' along the edge of pocket.

This card will either go into the donation box for Operation Write Home or be saved to mail out next year.

Thank you for stopping by, and go to Platypus Creeks Digital and submit your designs in the challenge.
