Mother's Day Card Set










This is what I made for my Mom for Mother's Day. I wanted to make my mom a nice set of cards and something to hold them. I bought the tutorial to make the little box on this blog. It was time consuming to make, but overall not that difficult. I used some old Basic Grey paper to make the box and the cards. Inside the box, there is transparency on each side to hold the cards in place. I dry embossed all the flowers for the cards using Lasting Impressions brass templates. I also made a few things to put in the outside pockets (gift card holder and post it note holder), but unfortunately ran out of time to take a picture with those things in it. I gave this to my mom when I went to visit last weekend so I didn't have to mail it and worry about the postal service ruining it!
