I wanted to create something a little different than the "usual" for my Mother-in-law's Mother's Day Card. I came across a card that looked like it would be fun to make on Extreme Cards and Papercrafts blog yesterday. Carol had a link to Brenda's Qbee's Quest blog who had the directions on how to make a fabulous pop-up card!
The fact that I didn't have much, if anything, Brenda used in her card, didn't stop me from making my own version! I improvised A LOT! Although, not being able to come up with Hyacinths ALMOST was a show stopper. I tried many ideas but didn't like any of them. In the end, I went with the Rosettes. And no curtains on the window. My MIL loved the card so I guess it came out OK.
It was much easier than I expected and other than being frustrated by not having hyacinths, I had fun creating it! Thank you Carol and Brenda for the help! If you haven't checked out their blogs, you should!
Hope you have a Wonderful week ahead!
