Mom's Birthday Card

I decided to make my mom a fun Z-Fold card for her birthday this month. I used some semi-glossy white cs for the Z part and layered it onto pink cs base. I then layered some paper from my 6x6 pad Making Memories Boho Chic Embellishment Paper Petite Paisley. I stamped the saying "You're not getting older...." from the CTMH Card Sentiments D1111 Set on a piece of the Petite Paisley paper and mounted it onto another piece of the pink cs for the top. Inside on the semi-glossy white cs I stamped the other half of the saying "you're getting better!" from the CTMH Card Sentiments D1111

I used my Belle Rose Palette Ink from TAC to stamp the saying and to edge the paper. I finished the top off with a mini prima and a green brad for the center.

My mom has a thing for snowpeople so when I saw the Cuttlebug die cut that had a snowman on it I knew I had to get it to use for her :) I cut one of him out and put it on a strip of the Petite Paisley paper and then mounted that onto the side of her envelope. You can see him on the lower left corner there in the pic!

Mom loved it and I was glad I had taken the time to put him there!
