Mom is Queen!

Before any class the way I pick what we are going to do is I make up samples and I sit them on my kitchen counter. I look at them when I walk by and if they make me smile then those are the projects we usually end up doing. Boy did this card ever make me smile and I am still smiling!! Love it!!
It is a Box Arm Card
I have saw a few versions on SC, I just tweaked mine to fit Mother's Day theme.
And I wanted to add the Easel butterfly turned magnet bookmark onto one arm of the card.

Springtime Vintage DSP, Pear Pizazz, Marina Mist, Baha
Stamps: Artistic Etchings, Messages for Mom,Blessed Mother, Four Frames, Perfect Punches
Punches: Pinking hearts border, decorative label, scallop oval, medium oval, 1 1/4 circle for crown
Big shot: Butterfly die, Petal cone banner, elegant line e-folder
Inks: Marina, Pear
Ribbons: Pear seam binding & Vanilla Satin

I stamped the base using a stamp from Four Frames in the Marina Mist then I touch the outer rim of the stamp "thanks" in Perfect Punches stamp set and that, then stamped my sentiment and popped it out with the scallop oval punch.

These are the Butterflies we made in my last post

We turned them into magnet bookmarks that can detach off the card using velcro
and your MOM gets a bookmark too!

Now finding magnets that work really well with project was a chore.

I could not believe it either this card collaspes and folds up & fits into a A2 envelope
