Mother's Day Zig Zag Card

Mother's Day is just around the corner and when we visited the Home and Garden Fair last Friday, I found exactly the right plant gifts for my DD and DDIL.  Woo Hoo!  Master J accompanied us and I begged him not to tell his Mama about her present but... he is only 4 nearly 5!

I wanted to try and make a zig zag card with a shaped top edge and by welding all kinds of triangles and squares together, I managed to make a straight edged template in DS.  Then I added the bases of the flowers I chose from the Bits and Pieces, Serenade and Hello Kitty carts and welded them in a pleasing arrangement along the top edge.  Easy peasy!

I inked the flowers, and added them to the card remembering to glue them on the opposite side of the middle fold.  (Note to self - add them to the back of this section too!  It looks so unfinished.) 

Then I had a great time adding bees and butterflies, ladybugs and caterpillars to each of the 5 sections of the card.  Pearls, glitter, vellum and Wink of Stella - embellishment heaven!

Such a fun card to make and I already have another zig zag card with a shaped top ready to cut in DS3.  : )

I am linking my card with the Mother's Day Challenges at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog # 300
and the Bitten by the Bug 2 Happy Mother's Day challenge.  Pop over and have a look at the lovely projects.   I have tons of ideas for next year!    Thanks for visiting with me today.  : )  Christine

C U Later Alligator!

I've been playing all week with Jooniper Parker's Half Zig Zag file in DS.  I was working on a road trip card with Filmore - the sixties style van from Cars - for the BBTB2 challenge this week but it just wasn't working out the way I had envisioned.   Grrr!  Part of the problem was that ever since I looked at the Design Team's projects, I had the fifties song "See You Later, Alligator!" stuck in my head.

So, I gave up on Filmore and searched for alligators instead.  Can you believe this sentiment image from Wild Card 2?  Woo hoo!  The alligators are from Animal Kingdom and to make them pop I cut them from textured card stock and sponged them with Distress Ink. Since the card is for Master J, I added tiny jeweled eyes.  This is such a fun fold and much easier for a beginner than the cascade card.  Thank you, Jooniper - I'm working on my next one!

Make sure you check out this fun challenge at BBTB2.  Thanks for visiting today.   : )  Christine
