Happy mother's day card

Whiff of joy safari animals card

This sunday we celebrated mother's day here in Sweden.
I made a very cute "safari" card for my mother-in-law.
She loves watching real-life safari so I thought these stamps from Whiff of joy would be perfect for her.

The text says: "On mother's day to the world's greatest, greatest mom, (and mother-in-law" on the inside)."
I wanted to make a card that you could pull out and that would contain the words "world's greatest, greatest" on each panel.
I didn't follow any specific measurements, just made a template in copypaper and transferred it to cardstock. The paper is scored at 7,7,8,8cm and is about 15cm high. The lion and monkey are on the smaller panels.

I glued on a diecut tab and drew an arrow so it would be more clear that you needed to pull out the inside.

The words I wrote with my dymo labelmaker. Love the look it gave together with these papers.

The patterned papers are scrappieces I had that I combined together myself. Love the kind of African vibe they have.
