Hello, It’s Sanna Lippert here again today with my monthly guest design team project. Now, I haven´t seen my mom since Christmas 2019 due to the pandemic, so for this Mother’s Day I made a card that says what I feel. I could imagine that there are other people out there who a dealing with the same problem, so I thought I’d share this card with you all today. But if you would rather like to say that you love your mom, then just change the sentiment. Easy!
For this card, I’ve created an easy-to-follow photo step-by-step. Here is how you can create this card:
Step 1: Start by die cutting 3 sets of the Ginko leaves from White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 2: Use green, yellow and pink Distress Ink tones and ink the die cut Ginko leaves.
Step 3: Cut a piece of blue cardstock to fit your card base size. Then adhere the inked Ginko leaves onto the blue cardstock either with Clear Double Sided Adhesive or liquid glue – whatever you prefer. Next cut off all excess pieces with scissors.
Step 4: Take a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock and using the Build Your Own Sentiment 1 stamp set, stamp the word “mom” with black ink onto it.
Step 5: Take a piece of white foam rubber and attach it onto Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet, then take the Blackboard Alphabet die set and die cut the words “miss” and “you” with your die cutting machine. Arrange and adhere the words onto the background piece. Then fussy cut the word mom into a suitable size and add Craft Drops for decor. When the drops are dry, adhere the piece onto a card base. I also stamped and fussy cut a little heart from the same stamp set and added it to the card, but that is totally optional.
This is how the finished card looks like. And it is still flat enough to put into the mail! I hope my mom likes the card and I hope you enjoyed this little card tutorial. And like always, by changing the sentiment and the colours you can use the same basic idea for different occations!
See you again next month, happy crafting! xxx, Sanna

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Just For You Gift Box.
Today’s project is an exciting one as it is giving you a sneak peek of the new Flower Collection designed by Anita Izendoorn. To create my Just For You Gift Box, I’ve used a couple of the dies from the new Flower Collection as well as a die from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift box at home.
Step One. You’ll need a piece of sturdy cardboard. I used a piece that had a white coating on the top. Die cut the Pizza Box, from the Pizza Box die out of the cardboard.
Step Two. Die cut the scalloped square from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of vellum.
Step Three. Choose a piece of patterned paper. Die cut the flower cut out from the Pizza Box die out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the cut out piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. Choose a piece of coordinating patterned paper that goes with patterned paper you just used to die cut the flower cut out. Die cut the 2 1/2″ circle from the Pizza Box die out of the coordinating patterned paper. Die cut the stitched circle from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of both circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. Die cut two of the single Ginko leaves once out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the remaining Ginko leaf twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Lightly blend Shabby Shutter Distress Ink using a blending tool with foam over all four leaves.
Step Six. From the Words 2 – Thinking of You die , you’ll need the For You Words. Die cut the words out of the same patterned paper that you die cut the flower cut out from.
Step Seven. Assemble your pizza box.
Step Eight. Adhere the scalloped square to the top of the pizza box. Adhere the flower cut out square to the middle of the scalloped square.
Step Nine. Adhere the stitched circle to the 2 1/2″ circle. Foam square the 2 1/2″ circle to the middle of the flower cut out square. Adhere the four Ginko leaves as desired on the left hand side of the circles.
Step Ten. To finish the gift box, adhere the For You words to white stitched circle as desired.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my For You Gift Box.
