Mom's Slimline Lift Flap Card

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this Saturday in April. 

Our neighborhood has come alive with the signs of Spring. Flowering trees in bloom, tulips, daffodils, hyacinth and crocus are everywhere. I love walking the neighborhood to take in all the new life. And we are having such warm weather and lots of sunshine. 

Our Easter celebration with my in-laws was great last Sunday. My meal turned out perfectly and I had lots of compliments from everyone. I bought a huge 15 lb ham and I have been making different dishes all week with it. Tonight will probably be the last of it. I am making a ham & swiss cheese braid. Also using spinach and mushrooms with crescent dough. It's a new recipe for me so I will see how it goes. 

Now onto my card for today. this one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I used the new Slimline Lift Flaps Stitched Rectangle die to create a Mother's Day card. So let's get started on some details of how I created my card. 

Design Steps:

I started off by cutting my Stampin'-Up purple posy cardstock with the double stitched rectangle die that is included in this set. I use a Big Shot machine and you do need the extended platform for the slimline dies.

Next, I laid the lift flaps die on the rectangle I just cut, secured it with tape and ran it back through the Big Shot.
I didn't want the flaps to be empty so I decided to stencil some flowers on the 2 end flaps. This stencil was so small and even though I covered the edges, I did manage to get a bit of the violet ink in the corner. Not to worry because I was going to use enamel dots, and it will cover it.
Now I am ready to cut the bouquets of flowers that will go under the flap. I used different colors of cardstock for the vases, teapot, flowers and leaves.
I adhered the vases under the flaps with a combo of double sided tape and Ranger multi medium matte adhesive.
I adhered the image panel to a white card base. Finished base size is 8" x 3". I cut my card stock at 8" x 6" and then scored at the 3" mark.

To finish off my card I added the "Mom" phrase cut in a grape cardstock. It's from the 2018 Mom w/heart die. I scattered a couple of grape hearts and a few enamel dots.
Well that's it for me for this post. Hope you are having some great weather wherever you are and that you get out this weekend to enjoy it. So until next time........God bless.
