Mother's Day Screen Card

Hi all!

My regular group of stampers enjoys making a special card for their mom each year. Last year's card in a box was a huge hit and hard to top! We met Saturday morning and everyone had somewhere else to go after class, so I needed to design something that could be completed in a short amount of time and that packed a WOW! I decided on a screen card.

These cards are so easy and fun to make. Here are the dimensions:

Base cardstock (I used Blackberry Bliss) cut at  11 x 5 1/2
      Score at 2 3/4, 5 1/2 and 8 1/4
Fold accordian style
I used the decorative label punch to create the screen legs.
The layers on each panel will vary based on whether or not you use a punch on the top of your screen. My layers are 4 1/4 x 2 1/2 and 4 x 2 1/4

The Painted Petals stamp set was perfect for this project as was the Painted Blooms DSP. We made a small coordinating bag, but I sent mine home with one guest to give to her daughter and never took a photo of it! A lovely gift set for Mother's Day.

Give the screen card a try - you'll have oh so much fun with it!

Thanks for stopping and until next time, take gentle care.
