mothers day card

this view is of the inside of the card whilst it is lying down. i know there is not much to look at at this angle, but i thought it would show off the backing paper that i used.
this view is of the card lay down, as you get a different perspective of it when it is in different angles.
this is a normal view of the front of the card.

this is a mothers day card that i made late last night. i couldn't sleep, so thought rather than toss and turn and get no joy at getting to sleep, i'd be creative and make a start on some mothers day cards. i'm not too sure what i think of this one, as it's the first time i have had a go any any fringing. i hope you all like the result of me venturing out of my comfort zone (i prefer cards that are easy to make and don't involve much imagination)

if anybody is interested in buying any of my cards, then feel to get in touch with me regarding payment and delivery. i charge reasonable prices, but bear in mind some might not be too CHEAP as i have to take into account the materials that have been used - so each card will be individually priced. do also bear in mind that i will charge for postage too.

as usual any comments tips or advice are greatly welcomed to a new crafter

how i made this card:

i started of with a white card blank, and then trimmed it down to 5.5cm x 14cm. i then trimmed 5cm off the top front panel, and then stuck down the spotty backing paper to the inside of the card.i then cut 2 4cm deep panels of green card (to fit on the front of the card), which i then fringed both of them before they were put onto the card. the first fringed panel went onto the top of the card, and i then cut a another green panel of card this time measuring 5.5cm x 9cm. this green panel was to be placed on the front of the card just under the top fringed panel - leaving just the fringed part of the panel on show. then i placed the second fringed panel to the bottom of the card, where i then attached a Happy Mother's Dday sentiment covering up the panel making sure that only the fringes can be seen. i then decorated the card with 2 diecut butterflies, some sequin flowers and purple gems to pick out the purple in the backing paper
