Flowers on Mother’s Day is a time-honored tradition. When combined with the new washi tape petals and leaves and craft papers from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London this Mother’s Day card is nostalgic.
The pop-up mechanism inside is made with Karen Burniston for Sizzix Platform, Circle & Ribbon 3-D Bigz die. The washi tape petals feel like real pressed flowers, so I decided to make it look like a pressed apple blossom complete with yellow sewing thread stamen.
I used a variety of double-sided tape to adhere the layers and Tombow aqua mono liquid glue to put the inside mechanism together. Foam tape was used to attach the sentiment doily which was cut out using the pop-up gatefold die from Papercraft inspirations issue 188.
One thought on “Roses and Apple Blossoms for Mother”
Beautiful card, and I love hearing about how and where you found your supplies. I was especially excited to see the washi tape petals as Stampin’Up! is coming out with them in the new catalog. Can’t wait to try them. You used them beautifully! Lovely design.
