Mothers's Day Card

Good Morning! I made this card for my mom for Mother's Day. I still don't have a Happy Mother's Day stamp, so I used an alphabet set to spell mom. I've got to buy sentiments more often. I usually avoid them because they're no fun, but they also aren't there when I need them, lol.

-Stamps-Flourishes Poppy Patch, Image Tree Alphabet -Paper-Riding Hood Red, White and Black cardstock; Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red DSP -Ink-Riding Hood Red, black -Copics-R22, R27, R46, R59, YG95, YR31 -Accessories-Satin Ribbon (RABOM) and pop dots

I made this to store my 6 X 6 patterned paper. I had it all just shoved in this plastic thing and it was just about impossible to find what I needed. So once again, I got out some cardboard and got to work razz. I made this the same way I made my recipe box, only on this one the top comes off completely, and of course it's lot bigger.

I'm not really loving the papers and colors I used, so I may end up tearing at apart and recovering it one of these days. Not sure what I was thinking. It doesn't even match anything in my stamp room, and I didn't have enough of that pattern paper. I made the box a lot bigger than what I needed so I won't ever have to make another one. I made the 'folders' out of white 12 X 12 cardstock cut in half. I scored them at 6, 6.25, 5.5 and a few marks in between, so that the back of the folder is the same height as the paper so I can see the tab on the back. I LOVE this! It is so easy to find exactly what I need now!

Supplies-cardboard, White, Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip cardstock, masking tape, glue, round tab punch, DSP from Hobby Lobby.
