Mothers Day Card

I live quite a distance from my Mother so on Mothers Day I like to make something a little extra special.
I decided on an Origami card and I ended up making two. One for my Mum, and one for my Mother in Law who lives in the same town as my Mum. They didnt take long to make, the hardest part was tracing round some chip board letters I have onto plain whaite card, then cutting the letters out! I distress inked the letters with a pink and purple ink and used cut n dry foam, then I put Comsic Shimmer Mica powder on top. Im sorry the photo doesnt show this very well, I had to take the image in the evening and no matter how I adjusted the lighting, it just did not come out right.

Once I had finished the card, I added some ribbon to tie the card together and made a square envelope to keep it safe.

The card itself concertina folded away.
