Mom's 2013 Mother's Day card

I am SO thankful to have had my mom for another year! Her health is delicate and not to be taken for granted -- and I DON'T!!

This was LOTS of fun to make. Did a wee bit of layering on a kraft card base.

The card stock envelope was made with a PTI die called "Bulk Mail Envelope." The finished depth is 1/4 inch, so the finished envie doesn't require extra postage. I thought it might be terribly "involved" to put together, but this one is my first attempt -- and it was surprisingly EASY to assemble and it turned out FINE.

Over the next few days, I have several card projects to post. I've been making them -- just haven't been posting. (I'll try to do better.)


  1. OH Deb! I really love how your card and envelope turned out! just looking at the details and I can see how much time you spent on your card.

    I have never seen the `bulk Mail Envelope`die sounds like a good one to have :)

    I am looking forward to seeing you post your other card projects :)

  2. Ooh, what a gorgeous card, Deb! Love that flower and fancy label. LOVE the bulk mail envelope, too. I could SO use that die!

  3. Thank you SO much, Deb! Your sweet comment a few moments ago completely made my day! Cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate YOU!
