Project - Earth Mother card

I love the pretty flowery pinks of this picture.

An ivory 7" x 5" card blank has been used here. If you don't have an ivory card blank, you can print our pale ivory sheet below onto a white card.

Using a craft knife and ruler, cut out one of the large motifs, a 12.5 x 3.5cm piece of the background from the motif sheet, a 12.5cm length of the border strip and a greeting.

Stick the background and border to the card using double-sided tape. Add the motif with sticky pads.

Cut a 16.5cm length of narrow ivory satin ribbon with sharp scissors. Add 2cm lengths of narrow double-sided tape to each end of the ribbon, add to the border strip and fold the ends around the back and inside of the card.

Finish the card with a greeting added with sticky pads and a ribbon bow made from the same satin ribbon and stuck with Aleene's tacky glue.
