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

  4. Happy Mother's Day, Christine. Love, love, love your card. You are such a clever lady with all your welding. I'd have not thought of welding triangles to squares to get the angles. I'll need to scrutinize your screen shot.

  5. Oh, I love your card and the beautiful flowers you used down the angles. I did one similar to this for my father's day card last year and he loved it! All the little additions to your card are adorable! Great Job! Thanks for sharing your talent at Fantabulous Cricut.
