This week's challenge is All About Mom!
I decided to try a new fancy fold technique this week, because if your momma doesn't deserve something special, then who does?! It's a Floating Inset Twist Card, and I learned this technique from Ustamp With Dawn and Friends Cards With Cool Moves Event. It is a very impressive fold! I have to say, it's tedious at first, but once you realize which end is up (LOL) it goes together quite easily. It's hinged in the middle so it pops out when opened.
Here's the bird's eye view of the opened card.
...And here is the back view.
After the tree image is stamped and blinged, it's tied with a length of Whisper White Organza Ribbon, and a Heart Trinket is tied on with a single strand of Linen Thread. I like to pull the layers apart when the project is more delicate looking, like this one.
The sentiment banners are from Delightful Dozen.
Some close up detail of the front and back. I really love the pink "blossoms" on the tree.
I hope you've enjoyed my first DT card! Please play along with HSS this week, so I can leave you blog love!
