This is the card I made for Mother's Day this year. I did an easel card with one of the ladies in the OCL - Vintage Roses set (she's very elegant...don't you think?). I also tried Tim Holtz's grunge paper rose. Loved it! Here's the link.
Oh...since I used the rose, I needed to come up with an envelope/box for it. I played around and came up with this one. It's one inch deep in order to accomodate the rose. I used the entire 8 1/2 x 11 CS and it was barely enough. I added a punched border (same as the easel card) and decided I would go with a belly band to help keep it closed. Again, 11 inches wasn't quite enough to go around it so I added an extra section of CS then covered it up with the butterfly.
I gave my mom and mom-in-law their Mother's Day cards/gifts last night and they loved them! Woot woot!
