Christmas '15' Series Frayed Florals and Festive Foliage 'Card for Mum'

Posted on December 2, 2015 at 8:50 PM

Today, I'm sharing the card I've made for my lovely Mum this year. Featuring a layered poinsettia, stamped with glitter embossing powders and mounted on a simple embossed background, this is an easy card to make. The glitter embossing gives a nice effect, almost like a fabric. I scrunched up the paper a bit first as well, which adds to the impression of material rather than paper. I'm using the Frayed Flower Template here to make the layered flower by the way.

I will be adding a special message to her inside and it will be going on her pin board, so she can look at it from her bed in the nursing home. I love making things for her, she is always brutally honest about things and manages to indicate exactly what she likes and what she doesn't, even though she no longer speaks. Most of the ideas you find on this site are inspired by her. I make sure to keep her up to date with the site by showing her the latest posts.

Love you Mum!
