Caboodle Card

Heeeeeere's Caboodle! A paper packet from the Close To My Heart Spring Idea Book. Love the springy colors and patterns.

This card is for my very special & dear mom ... wish I could be with her for Mother's Day Tea. Gotta get it in the mail. I wrote my own sentiments inside. Five hundred miles are between us and when we do get together, we make the MOST of our time.

I made the tissue paper flower after seeing the Beate Johns flower on the Splitcoaststampers site. It's easy. Just cut various sizes of flower shapes. (I cut these free hand.) Pierce a hole in the center for a big brad. Use the finger ink sponge to dab a little ink color (heavenly blue here) on the layers. When dry, scrunch the tissue paper toward the brad's center until you're happy with the petals' look. I started darker on the bottom layers and lightened up as I worked toward the top layers.

I got the patchwork idea/design from a papercrafter and unfortunately didn't record her name. If you know who it is, please let me know and I'll give her the credit due!

Happy Mother's Day to ALL you moms out there! You have THE hardest job in the world. God bless you as you love and teach your children well.
