Now my Mum loves all my cards that I make. She's a huge follower of my Facebook page and always likes, leaves a comment and even shares my cards to her friends. When she comes to visit, she loves to come and make some cards with me, so that she has a stock of handmade cards to give to her friends too.
Now my only problem is every year I have to make her a special, one of a kind, card that I know she will keep... no treasure, for the rest of the year. It also has to be something she hasn't seen before.
So today, I'm sharing her card and because she don't visit here often (thankfully) the secret is safe with all of you!
Do yo think she'll like it!! She, like me, lives in a hot country during Christmas and we both miss the cold, dark, snowy English Christmases. The main reason why I brought the White Christmas stamp set was because it reminded me of my childhood Christmas, so of course I had to use it on my Mum's card.
Now I have seen these Shutter Cards popping up all over the internet at the moment and I love to jump on board a bandwagon lol!!! They are so very simply to make and so effective. I cut out the little "Merry Christmas" banner and hung it up between two of the shutters to give it a little 3d effect. It still closes and fits into a normal size envelop, because it slides in between the panels:
Now I'm counting on you all to keep this little card a secret, just in case you run into my Mum. She's such a jet setter who knows where you might find her!!
