Soft Summer.....

The Sun is out here which is probably why I reached for this Stamp set again! Soft Summer... I hope my Mum isn't reading this post before Sunday:-)
This is for My Mum and I will be doing the same for Mum in Law as well. For this card I made a sort of double Gate fold. I attached 2 cards together, like in the Criss Cross Cards and scored the front sections in half. Its very stable and stands up lovely.

I used the New Scallop Oval and Large Oval Punches from the Mini Catalogue to hold back the middle section. The sentiment is from A Beautiful Thing Stamp Set.

I stamped the Soft Summer Flowers in Black Stazon on Whisper White and coloured them in with my SU Marker Pens. I used Barely Banana, So Saffron, Close to Cocoa and Old Olive markers. I cut them out and added a couple of extra flowers. Pop over to the Beates Blog, thats where I got the idea of scoring the square layer.
The base cardstock is Ruby Red and So Saffron card with So Saffron Designer Paper.
For the inside I added some more paper and stamped the Happy Mothers Day from Occasional Greetings Stamp Set.

My Mum is a lovely Lady and I feel so blessed to say she is My MUM......She is a really hard worker and I appreciate all she does for Me and My Family. Mum will be 60 at the beginning of April so on to the Next Card!

Thanks for looking,
