To a special Mum

Here is card that I have been making over the past few days. I first created a cut file in Cricut design Studio using George and Basic Shapes and Pooh Font using the Cricut Expression. I then embossed the letters through my sizzix with texture plates. I then decorated the word book with cardstock that I embossed with my sizzix texture plates and then sanded the card so it stood out more. I then stamped and coloured some forever friends images and inked the edges with a gold ink pad. On some of the forever friends I stamped them again on gold paper and cut out parts such as a heart or present and textured this. I then added some triple embossing done with gold metal magic embossing powder. Once I had done this I printed out the verse and cut it down and inked the edges. I then added a paper flower sprayed with crafty notions creative spray in gold and added a rain dot to the centre. I also cut a butterfly out of gold paper and embossed using a Cuttlebug tag team set. Then to bind it all together I put eyelets through the lot using my crop-a-dile and then put ribbon through and tied it in a bow.
