Design Team: KimberlyRae Forde Week 5 Term 3

Happy Mother's Day!

With Mother's Day, days away KimberlyRae has created a sweet card for her Mom & Mother in law, that we are sure they will GASP, over! 

See her how-to below: 

How about a spot of  Tea from this sweet strawberry tea pot  Card?! 

I had so much fun making these for my Mom and Mother-in-law.  Inside is a personal message and I used Cosmo Crickets 'Garden Variety' Chipboard baby chickens as accent.  I think they will love it.  On the back of course I used SVGcuts ' From the Cozy Craft Studio of____' Stamp as my signature tag.  This card was so EASY and Fun to make!  Keep reading to find out how  you can make one for your Mom, too.

SVGcuts cutting files from the kit ‘Lunch with Mom'. Kit comes complete with strawberry tea pot box, roses, mini album and much more yumminess!  Can't wait to make more Goodies from this Collection.

1. Ok first thing I did, in the software, was 'weld' the tea pots handles together to form the card and create score line on the handle,  where the card will fold.
2. Using SCAL3 [yes, it's compatible with the Craftwell eCraft and cuts like butter Every Time], cut all pieces from SVGcuts cut files [see list above] with your Craftwell eCraft.
I used these settings for the All pieces:
4-5 pressure
no tabs
3. Then, ink up all pieces in respective colors.  Like-Red for strawberry edges, green for leaves and brown for strawberry blossoms.
4. Now, it's just like  puzzle.  Place a coordinating piece of yellow underneath the red [seeds] and then the 'seed' pieces on top of that, for dimension.
5. To form flowers squish them until crinkled and adhere to the flower base.  Add twine to buttons and adhere in the flower center.
6. Oh!  Another thing- to form the steam coming out of the spout I just doodled and cut out 'Mom' in a heart shape and adhered it to the piece of wire.
 Embellish as desired and You’re Done!

I just love how this turned out and hope my Moms everything, too :)
