Project - Gateau Violette Mothers Day card

This is a pretty card for Mother's Day.

For this one print:-

The Gateau Violette motifs onto quality white card
The Easter Extras 1 sheet onto quality white paper
The Easter Extras 2 sheet onto quality white card
The Spring greetings sheets onto quality white card
The lilac polka dot background paper onto quality white paper

To make the card, cover the front of a white A5 card with the lilac polka dot background paper using double-sided tape.

Using a craft knife and ruler, cut out one of the Gateau Violette pictures, a greeting and a recipe. Stick them to larger pieces of silver metallic card with double-sided tape and trim round with a craft knife and ruler to leave a small border. Add them to the card blank with sticky pads.

Cut out a pink sugar packet and a butter packet from the Easter Extras 1 sheet with small scissors. I've wrapped the butter wrapper around 2 thickness of pale-coloured fun foam measuring 2 x 1.2cm and sealed it with double-sided tape.

For the sugar packet, I've used a 2.3cm strip of kitchen roll, folded to measure 1.5cm wide - this creates a squashier-looking packet, more like a sugar packet would really be.

When both miniatures are made, stick them to the card blank using a strong tacky glue such as Aleene's. Weigh down the packets lightly (with a small punch, for example, or mobile phone!) while the glue sets.

Finally, cut out an oven glove and apron from the extras sheet using small/decoupage scissors. Put some double-sided tape on the back of the apron and add three pieces of ribbon to make the neck-loop and ties.

Stick both the oven glove and apron to the card with sticky pads.
