Moms 75th birthday card! It was worth the time

I really wanted to share this card, an extreme card I made for my Moms 75th Birthday. My mom is simply the best. I love her TONS and wanted to take the time to really make her something that shows how I feel about her. She is amazing!

I started out with the Amberley Grace collection of papers, and used the line of coordinating ribbons, hardware and cardstock. It was super easy, all went together without me worrying about it. The coolest thing is you can just run through the catalogue to see which paper collection is perfect for your occasion and go from there. I know my Mom, and she loved it. Its simple, classy, elegant and just plain perfect. I just loved giving it to her!

I used my scorpal of course to make the parts fit perfectly and without breaking the cardstock. The scorpal is so cool for that. I have lots of cardstock that just didnt fold right, until now:) I also used my cropodile to set all my hardware. TIP!!!: keep the instruction page from the package for both of the tools nearby. It has saved me TONS of time and I have great results! Inside, I used tons of tags and fun stamps to decorate, with thoughts for my Mom. Really expresive thoughts that make me smile:)
Then I used cute little pockets created again with that fabulous scorpal! It just Scorpalicious:) Everything just lays flatter if you know what I mean by that. Its a huge difference.
This is one of my fave sets, and was an amazing hostess set last year so I got it free. Just one perk of being an angel with TAC.

And finally a little love note for Mom, to make it super personal with real handwriting! I love you MOM!!!
