To make my card, I started off with a 5.5 x 4.25" white card base. I decided I wanted to use one of the trellis files that I have for my Cameo, and I wanted it inside a window, so I cut a piece of white card stock to 5.25 x 4", cut a window out in the middle of it with the second largest die from the Spellbinders die set, Romantic Rectangles, then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I then cut a piece of designer paper that I had in my stash, just a bit larger than the window, cut out the trellis with my Cameo out of green card stock, cut it to fit the designer paper, adhered it to the top of it, then adhered that piece to the underside of the window. I then inked the edges with green ink, then adhered the whole piece to my card base front.
For my accents, I cut out butterflies using the Martha Stewart butterfly stamp and punch set, but before I cut them out, I stamped the paper with one of the stamps that comes with the set with pink ink, then punched the butterfly out. To add a little sparkle, I added a little Crystal Stickles along the pink edges and in the middle, let them dry, then adhered them to the corners of the window.
For my sentiment, I typed out, Happy Mother's Day on my computer, in green, at the size I wanted, printed it out, then cut it down to size. To mat it, I used pink card stock, but I cut it so there was a little more on the edge of the right side, inked both pieces with pink ink, then adhered them together, leaving more of an edge on the right side. I added 3 green Jewel Dazzles along that edge.
