Mom card & box



Hello everyone, hope your all keeping well. We've had some awful weather the last couple of days, especially today, it hasn't stopped raining....aarrgghh!! Well looking on the bright side, it has given me chance to make this card. One of the guys in work with my hubby asked if I could make a card for his 'Mom', I love to hear the different ways we call people/things around the country, I always called my Mam, Mam, my children have always called me Mum, which I prefer, I know quite a few of you call your Mum, Mom, which is so lovely.
Anyway, sorry for the digression, the card above has been made using papers from QVC recent craft day, it was one of the hot picks. Some of the papers are double sided, which is exactly what I needed to create the paper bow on the box. I spent quite a bit of time over at Split Coast Stampers the other evening and saw the tutorial for the bow and decided to use that to decorate the box. The image is Penny Black and was very kindly given to me by Michelle, many thanks again Michelle. Cardstock is Amercian Traditional Designs. Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Stylized Flowers embossing folders, Nestabilities and the verses were from the net.
I've now got to get started on another wedding card and box, so will be back maybe tomorrow or the day after. Take care and thanks for visiting my 'lol oasis xx vicki xx
