With Mother's Day coming up, I thought I'd get a head start making my cards. I decided to try a really cool new type of card with drawers which I made with my Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool, Boxer board, and Advanced Techniques DVD. It took me quite a while to make, but it came out perfectly and was totally worth the time spent. I used my new DCWV Coral Couture Stacks to create and decorate my card. The pattern paper has glitter all over it :)
I added some beautiful Prima flowers and leaves which I added gold glitter to for a little sparkle. I also added a layer of Recollection rhinestones around the "Home is where the Heart is" sentiment as well. All four sides of the card have a darling little drawer that pulls out. I lined the drawers with Coral Couture patterned paper and added a ribbon bow to the end to open and close them with. I used a really strong glue so that they would hold up.
The top portion of the card is an easel card fold. The stamp is part of Crafter's Companion new Paintbox stamp collection. Isn't she so cute? You can see more of these new stamps here. The bouquet next to the little girl is from Websters Pages and I added a ribbon bow to the bouquet as well. I've had the ribbon forever and I am not sure who made it. The frame around my stamp was cut from my Cricut using Cindy Loo cartridge.
It's a good thing I liked my new card so much, since it's the only thing I've made all week. Both kiddos are sick again. Their fevers have broke but they are still having to do breathing treatments. They have an appt w/ their doctor in a couple of hours. Nick been the sicker of the two this time around and is coughing his brains out. I tried to get a little bit of honey down him to help with his cough last night. He made sure I'd never try to poison him with that awful stuff again but throwing it up all over my himself and my bed after a couple of sips. Okaaay, no more honey...
(Quick note: Nick has bronchitis and got Zithromax today, and Lara has an ear infection & respiratory infection and got some Augmentin today, so they should be on the mend soon! Thanks for the sweet comments! You gals are the sweetest!)
