Birthday Card for Mama

I know that mama has already received her birthday card, so it's okay to post it now (even though she doesn't make cards, she checks out my blog).  I couldn't ask for a better mother.  She is and has always been there for us whenever we need her.  She's been a HUGE help with our son, Ben, and they have a very special bond.  We all love her dearly and we're truly blessed!!!!

On to the card....it's an easel card.  It's very simple to make:
  • Score a 4-1/4"x11" piece of card stock at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2". 
  • Fold inward on both score lines to make a short "tent." 
  • Next, attach a base of 4-1/4"x5-1/2" card stock to the bottom end of the "tent" to be your card front. 
Below is a rough drawing of how the card looks from the side:

Here are the measurements and supplies for my card:
  • Stamps:

    • Hugs & Wishes (Retired)
