Birthday S'more

This was a fun card to make. I love the raccoon with all the crumbs inside the card. I'm sure I cased this from a couple of people but since I wasn't planning on having a Blog I never wrote down who they were. Sorry but thanks to everyone who helped to inspire this card.

Corsage card

The corsage is made with the Sizzix scallop #2. I used Designer paper and die cut 2 of both size scallops. Then I cut each scallop down a valley to the center of the scallop. Then accordion folded the large scallop every two mountains and the small scallop at every mountain. Then glued the two large scallops together by overlapping one accordion fold. Do the same with the small scallops. The small scallop flower will fit over top the large scallop flower perfectly. Put a brad through the center of the corsage and through the ribbon, I used a slip knot on the ribbon to make it easier for the wrist corsage. The brad prongs are what hold it on the card. Now you have an awesome Mother's card esp. from a child. I got the idea from Paper Crafts May/June issue page 69


Wood blocks
Bella Rose Designer paper
coordinating Card Stock
Chipboard Letters
Craft ink pads
lots of Accessories
I will be making an instruction sheet with lots of photos that you will be able to purchase for $10.00.
The blocks have letters on four sides so you can spell out lots of different things. The instructions will come with a complete list of words that I wanted to be able to display. I'm sure you could create more words with the blocks. The card/photo holder are removable so you can create your own look.

Sun flower

Stamp sets:
Brocade Blue
More Mustard
Summer Sun
Chocolate Chip DP
Raspberry Tart DP
Sizzix Beautiful Butterflies
Sizzix Scallop #2
1 3/8 cicrle punch
Old Olive 5/8 Grosgrain
SU Pretties Kit
Paper Weaving - center of Flower
Fraying Ribbon- Grass

I wanted to play around with the Paper Weaving technique and this what I ended up with. I cut my strips of DP paper 3/4" wide then cut the strips in half with my SU Craft and Paper Scissors, that I absolutely love, so the flower center wouldn't be "perfect". I used the largest scallop on the die and cut slits to form petals. On the Summer Sun petals I cut off a sliver more on each petal just because I thought it looked better:) I also gave each petal a slight bend under and folded every other petal up and then the remaining petals down to give it more of a 3D look. I also folded and bent the butterfly wings for more interest.
