The design team are featuring the Oh So Succulent stamp set in our projects this hop. I have seen so many wonderful creations with this set but I really wanted to feature something a little different. This bundle will be leaving us at the end of May, and all but the Succulent Garden DSP is still available on the retiring list if you are in Australia or New Zealand. If you love what you see on this hop, order your stamps and dies now before they leave us forever.
I settled on making a different kind of card fold than my normal top folding tent card and also make it my card for Mum on Mother's Day. Nothing like being prepared!
I still have the card folded over at the top, but I have also added a bottom hinge so when the card fronts come together they interlock. I die cut many of the flowers using the coordinating Succulent Framelit Dies. I popped a couple of the flowers up on dimensionals which is how I created the lock on the front of the card. A Rich Razzleberry flower on the top of the card slips in behind a small Marina Mist flower on the bottom half to keep the card closed.
As a family, we don't normally give gifts on Mother's Day, just a card. I had a lucky find recently when I came across some dinky little white pails in a local shop. The size was just perfect to whip up a little home decor piece Mum can keep beside her on the coffee table! It will last that much longer than real flowers, for sure!
Next up on the hop is my good friend Rochelle Blok from across the ditch in Australia!
