For My Mother

 Welcome to my studio.  Today I am sharing the tri-fold shutter card that I made for my Mother.  She  has always been sewing or quilting since she was old enough to sew.  I made this special card for her featuring beautiful papers from Our Daily Bread Soulful Stitches Collection and used stamps from GKD Needlework Sentiments, MFP's Sew What?, and a Winnie and Walter set.  I added lace, gold metallic thread, buttons, charms, a needle, embossing with folders, die cuts, and a stamped fancy cut dressmaker form with flowers. Some of the inks used were Memento Potter's Clay and Distress Ink Antique Linen. Also used White Textured and Green CS's.

This is a design that I do not use often but I love making these tri-fold cards. I did enclose a message on the back but do not have a photo to show.
