Here's the card I made to give my daughter-in-law tonight for Mothers Day. This will also be the card for Mothers Class on Wednesday.
Using a white confetti cardstock as the base, I cut a plain circle with a Nestabilities die. I then cut a scalloped circle, slightly larger, out of a 4x5 1/4" overlay. Next I cut a 3 3/4" square piece of acetate and taped it to the back of the overlay.
Using the Mixed Bunch punch from SU, I punched two flowers out of double-sided dsp (also from SU) and three 1 3/4" circles for the flower centers. Then I started making a sandwich--paper one, that is (lol.) First, I mounted the circle onto the front of the acetate with a glue dot. Then I mounted the blossom to the back of the acetate with another glue dot before mounting the overlay to the card. This completed the acetate "sandwich."
For the inside, I added the contrasting circle to the back of the blossom. To mount the second blossom so that it is perfectly aligned, I placed a piece of ds tape on the back and laid it over the first one with the tape facing up. Then I simply closed the card over it to transfer the blossom to the inside panel of the card. After adding the center circle, I wrote a personal Mothers Day note on the bottom.
To finish the front of the card, I added the button and embroidery floss. Then I punched the butterfly twice with a MS punch, one in the same paper as the overlay and one in a black polka dot scrap. For the final touch, I added the black gems to the b'fly and spread some Stickles on the wings with my finger to give it a sheen.
Since the Mothers Class will be after the holiday, we will turn this card into a get well or birthday card. Meanwhile, I hope everyone enjoys a wonderful Mothers Day!
