Mother's Day Triple Whammy

Even though I was sure I would not get a chance to sit down at the craft table, I was able to do some crafting Wednesday night. This is a triple whammy card! I used this week's Cards Patterns sketch #62 to get the ball rolling. Of course, I needed to make a Mother's Day card, so I added Our Creative Corner challenge to make a Mother's Day Card with out flowers or blossoms.
Finally, I used the Embellish Magazine Color Challenge with Embossing. I really did not figure out a way to add the color green until it came to the packaging and I decided to use a green bow. Because it is bulky, I needed a deeper envelope. This PTI stamp box worked perfectly! I added a bow. BAM! Wonderful package for my dear mom. Actually, would you believe that I made all these decisions and only after the finally product was complete I realized it followed the Embellish challenge? I am sure my subconsciousness was involved. I did looked at the challenge colors when they were originally posted.

I took some advice from Ashley Cannon Newell. Recently she posted a video for PTI on how to use adhesive tape to make ruffles. Well, actually on using ribbon on cards, but I realized that the key is the adhesive. Boy, was it easier to put the two trims together and create the ruffles when I used Crop & Glue Lines High Tack  which I had in my stash from the CHA Supershow. What was I thinking trying to use liquid glue!?

I'd love to know what you think. Thanks for visiting.

Happy Day!
