Cyber Mothers

I have plundered my stash and my scraps box for this card and have used my Bigshot to emboss and cut the frames. I have actually made 2 like this but like the numptie I am I posted the other without photgraphing it! DOH!!! If you are very well behaved I might just share my secret weapon for making this with you later on. They are a bit of a labour of love for a 'bish, bash, bosh' crafter like me. I took the inspiration from a birthday card from my friend Ginger, her cards are just out of this world. I should also say that these little cards are A6 in size and I put them in a C5 envelope unfolded for posting. Sorry folk, I can't move my picture of the tool I used to create this card. Its a wonderful gadget with click in and click out dies. It came from Pinflair many years ago and although I have used it loads of times this is the first time I thought of doing this. On the ends of the handles there are 2 sizes of balltool so you can punch and shape as you go. It is about the same size as a pair of pliers. I have used it to make 'stuff' to go into shaker cards, the little leaves are so cute and quite useful, they measure only 6mm aprox. My Cyber Mothers are both such special ladies who have picked me up and dusted me off many times and they deserve very special cards, in fact the shock of getting a card from me in time for the occassion will probably be more than they can stand, as I am notorious for driving around months with the cards before I remember to post them.

I am certain your cards are going to be well received Sass, such a lot of work punching and placing all those little flowers. Fantastic work

A true labour of love - it is gorgeous (and I should know being one of the recipients!)

Could have done without the heart attack of receiving a card before its due date though! (rofl! - only joking really - although you never know might get the other missing cards when you clean out the car! :-)

loves yer really

Gorgeous flower heads Sass, they must take an age to do but well worth it. I am sure they will be much appreciated by the recipients. Thank you for joining in with Crafty Ann's challenge this week.
