Happy Mother's Day 2016
I'm happy to say I was chosen to enter a Mother's Day card challenge for the The Paper Garden. They specialize in beautiful papers for special occasions.
I made this card using the cardstock The Paper Garden sent me. This paper is nice and thick! I actually had to change the setting to a heavier paper on my Cricut Explore to cut it.
I wanted to design a garden for my card.
*You know, a paper garden.*
I have never actually made my own cut file for a box card. I started by welding four bits of fencing together and then added score lines for my score pen. The fence cut is from the Cricut cartridge The First Few Years. I then cut out a thin rectangle to hold my flowers in place. This was my first attempt creating a box card from scratch, now, I want to make more with different plants and flowers, a gnome and a garden sign. Maybe, after Mother's Day...
Here is the link so that you can also enter this Mother's day card challenge or so that you can vote for your favourite card.
Thank you for popping by my blog and The Paper Garden. Have a great weekend!
