Mom's Slimline Lift Flap Card

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

We have a brand new release of dies in the online store. Your slimline cardmaking is going to get a lot easier. We have 9 Slimline designs and they are on sale at a great price. You can get the entire bundle for under a $100 or each individual die is 25% off.  

And we are also having a sale to celebrate 19 years in business. You can save up to 60% on select dies. The sale runs through April 12. So check out the online store now for the best selections. 

Today for your viewing pleasure, I created a Mother's Day card.  I am featuring the new Lift Flaps Stitched Rectangle Slimline die. It is a 5 piece die set. 

Since we are having a sale on most dies, I thought I would select one to use with the Lifts Flaps die.  I used the Flowers for Mom die from an older Mother's Day release. And, and it's currently on sale for 40% off.  

So let's get started with some details of how I created my card. 

Design Steps:

I started off by cutting my light purple cardstock with the double stitched rectangle die that is included in this set. I use a Big Shot machine and you do need the extended platform for the slimline dies. 
Next, I laid the lift flaps die on the rectangle I just cut, Secured it with tape and ran it back through the Big Shot. 
I didn't want the flaps to be empty so I decided to stencil some flowers on the 2 end flaps. This stencil was so small and even though I covered the edges, I did manage to get a bit of the violet ink in the corner. Not to worry because  I was going to use enamel dots, and it will cover it.
Now I am ready to cut the bouquets of flowers that will go under the flap. I used different colors of cardstock for the vases, teapot, flowers and leaves. 
I adhered the vases under the flaps with a combo of double sided tape and Ranger multi medium matte adhesive. 
I adhered the image panel to a white card base. Finished base size is 8" x  3". I cut my card stock at 8" x 6" and then scored at the 3" mark. 

To finish off my card I added the "Mom" phrase cut in a grape cardstock. It's from the 2018 Mom w/heart die. I scattered a couple of grape hearts and a few enamel dots. 

That's it for me for this post. I will be back on Monday with another card using these new Slimline basic dies.

Such a cute Mother's Day card Mary. I love how you used the flowers with the lift flap die. So much fun seeing all the creativity with the new line of dies.

Oh Mary, this is such a sweet card. Any mom would be happy to receive this card.
I need to get out my dies and make more cards using them. Since joining a Stamping DT, my dies are being a little neglected :-) Need to join another die DT, I guess :-) Enjoy your weekend.
