Cards, Cards, Cards.

In an attempt to relax and de-stress myself I decided to start making some more of my much needed supply of cards for birthdays, Mothers Day etc.

My first card is a Mothers Day card and for this I used  some of the Papermania Blue Burleigh Collection. You may have seem in an earlier post I did a Scrapbook page using the same paper collection.  

The completed card
I began the card by gate folding a piece of blue card from my stash. Its an uneven fold  because I think this is more interesting than the normal even folded cards. I then matt and layered using some darker blue card and some floral paper from the Burleigh Blue collection

I created embellishments using the large Burleigh Blue flowers together with some paper flowers from my stash and some buttons On the smaller gate fold side I placed one flower at the bottom and then a sentiment at the top which I finished off with a small blue bow from the Burleigh collection

On the larger gate fold side I created a flower grouping using some of the large blooms from the Burleigh Blue collection, but I also used some die cut flowers using my Tim Holtz dies. I cut out the leaves from some metallic paper I had in my scraps collection, with a Memory Box die.To finish off I added some small metallic butterflies also from Papermania   

As I have said before I love the blue and white papers and I am pleased with the overall card. It definitely made me feel more relaxed making it
