Special Mother

One of the benefits of being married is that you get a second "mom" (at least if your mother-in-law is super like mine is!)  That means making two Mother's Day cards.  This one is for my Mother-in-law.  Don't you love that metal butterfly?  Here's a secret: it is metal tape (a gift from my dad who uses it for chimney liner installations--great huh?) adhered to both sides of a piece of scrap card stock.  I applied it to both sides because I was going to have the left hand flap open up, but decided against it in the end.  Anyway, it makes a nice think piece that embosses so awesomely and looks just like a metal embellishment.  Love this stuff.  I have a huge roll, it will last forever!
