Corrosive challenge card


Here the card that I gave to my mum on Mothers Day, in the UK its mid March. I used the Flower Fairies CD from Crafters Companion. I made a gatefold card and layered papers from the CD, I decoupaged a large rose fairy on one side and cut out letters for the word MUM on the other.
Then inside I wrote my message on a matching insert and made an acetate pop-out with a smaller rose flower fairy on, also decoupaged. This lies flat, then pops out when the card is opened, the effect is lovely as you can't see the acetate, so it looks like she is free standing. It took me ages but it was a labour of love and well worth it, my mum loved it. Light pink roses are her all time favourites.
The photo's don't really do it justice, its so much nicer in real life. Hope you like it.
