So Many Shoes, So Little Time

This is a Mother's Day card for my mom with coordinating envelope. This was inspired by the Mother's Day Card post found here.


Background Paper: Premium Stacks, Brads: MakingMemories, Frame: Current, Ribbon: Sheer Creations, Stickers: Lisa Frank, Pathways

Steps to Create:
- CARD
(1) cut background paper for card to desired size
(2) cut out circles from frame/banner piece and slits at edges for ribbon
(3) using the frame for a guide, cut out card into same shape (I used mini clothespins to hold the frame to the background paper while I cut around it)
(4) insert ribbon into slits
(5) cut out paper to back the frame
(6) secure backing paper to the frame (again I used the clothespins for this)
(7) place stickers in frame cutouts, staggering the placement, behind the frame but on top of ribbon, adhering stickers to both the backing paper and ribbon
(8) glue backing paper to frame, then adhere frame to card
(9) glue ribbon to card, insert brads, and add sentiment

- ENVELOPE
(1) cut out and glue background paper and backing paper to left edge of envelope
(2) glue background paper strip towards bottom edge of envelope
(3) place sticker in bottom right corner
(4) place brads in top left corner
