«Moederkesdag».... A Card for my Mum-in-Law

After seeing so many beautiful tri-fold cards I just had to try one!



I also got to test the satin-ribbon flower technique I had just learned at my friend Stephanie's workshop, who just happens to be my friendly neighborhood Stampin`Up rep :) You can visit her blog here.


Here is what it looks like closed (seems a little bland but that all changes once it's opened!):


And a side-view:


Absolutely loved coloring this little Tike! He's from Penny Black: «Just for You» cling stamp. Afterall, this is my Man's mother's card, so it had to represent him somehow ;)





The brown paper I embossed with Versamark ink and pen, using clear embossing powder from Stampin' Up and the rest mainly came from my scraps folder.
