I have a very special woman in my life that I love more than life itself. She is my best friend, my confident, my cheerleader, my rock, she is my mom. On Saturday she turned 86 years old, which is a miracle. The doctors told my grandma that when she was born she wouldn't live pass 3 days. My mom was born a blue baby (I don't think they use that term anymore). She has had health issues all of her life, so it is truly a miracle that we still have her here with us. My mom's birthday was on Saturday and I wanted to make her a special card.
I wanted something different, but what? The first place I go for ideas is Pinterest. As I was looking around, I found directions on how to make a sliding pop up card. I was so excited! It was different and it was so easy, which I didn't expect. I thought this was going to be so time consuming, but it wasn't. The only part that was a little time consuming is the coloring of the rose. I enjoy coloring, so it didn't bother me.
Here is a close up of the roses that I stamped with So Saffron ink and colored with the Daffodil Delight, light and dark, Stampin' Blends. I stamped and colored two roses, but only cut out one of them. For all of the stamping I used the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin stamp set. The stamps and projects have been so beautiful lately in the Paper Pumpkin kits. See more about Paper Pumpkin at the end of this post.
The amazing thing about this card, is you can fold it flat to fit inside a standard size envelope.
To make this card you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
