New Look, Come Look

I have a new look for my blog!!

My inspiration was this pretty scrapbook paper I found. After I created the new look for my blog, I decided to use the paper to make my mother a pretty card.  This is what it looks like finished:

My mother is a beautiful person and this card is all her.  Her cheery personality, kind nature and loving heart are captured in this card.
here's what you'll need: a white blank card and envelope, rubber stamp, scrap paper with print, scrap paper in a solid color, a double sided tape, paper cutter or scissors, and a ribbon.
 First, cut your paper so that the print paper is slightly smaller than the solid and the solid paper is slightly smaller than your blank card. Tape the  card stock and place ribbon inbetween the solid piece and the blank card.

Place the printed cardstock on top and make a bow with the ribbon.

Next, write a sentiment or use a rubber stamp:

It's so easy to make a beautiful card for someone special.  My mother is going to love it!
