My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 109 Mother's Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hi Friends! It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts. Our talented Sandy chose Mother's Day as the theme for Challenge 109. She asked us to show what makes your Mother so unique. Maybe it is frills and lace, a sense of us in your card/project.

This is my first time to try the SplitCoastStampers's tutorial for a Diamond Origami Fold Card. The card style is so unique and with the pretty flower patterned papers, it is perfect for my Mom who loves flowers!
If you try the tutorial for the card, please note that on Step 2 the score lines should be 3 1/4" and 5 1/2" not the 3" and 5 1/2" given in the written instructions. That change is noted in one of the comments on the first page.

Cricut Cartridges:
Flower Shoppe - Page 13 - Scallop 4 is cut 2.25" and 2". Oops, I think Scallop 1 was 2". 
Page 22 - Ruffle 5 is cut 1". I used 5 of these leaves.
Wedding - Hearts cut 1.5" using the basic and blackout images.
Mother's Day 2010 - Happy Mother's Day is cut 3".

Open view of card!

Martha Stewart Scroll Lace Corner punch is used on the rectangle mat. Ribbon is from stash. Lots of inking! Paper is double-sided K&Company. I enjoyed making this unique card and know that I will have to try it again.

Stop by My Sheri Crafts and view all the pretty Mother's Day projects by the talented design team and our guest designer for this challenge. For more details on the projects, please visit the individual blogs. Don't forget to show a little love - we love comments too!

Now it is time for you to join in our fun with a Mother's Day card/project showing us what makes your Mother unique. Remember several Ooh la la awards will be given and one person will be chosen to be our next guest designer! We look forward to seeing your work!
