SEI: Mother's Day Card

I was out of town last Thursday when my Mother's Day card was up over at the SEI Lifestyle Blog. I used the Forever Sassy collection to make a pinwheel flower for a cute spring theme...


Supply List
Forever Sassy (Modern Girl, Stickers, Assorted Overlays, Sundries)
Hoo's Sweet (Stickers, Kraft Chip)

For the pinwheel, I cut a 2x2 piece of patterned paper, and cut almost to the center from all four corners. I added a small piece of foam tape to the center, and folded down every other corner, and topped with a gem. I jabbed a toothpick into the foam tape for the stem, and secured the whole thing down to the top center of an embossed card base. 

I arranged two different sized frames around the pinwheel - popping the top one up. A couple of leaves added to the base turned the pinwheel into a flower.  To finish up, I added the sentiment to the top frame using a button for the 'O', and just a small piece of scalloped border sticker to the bottom frame for the final touch.

Thanks for stopping by!
