To a Special Mum

This is the Christmas card I made for my mum using a lovely Kanban topper- I can post the card now as she doesn't read my blog!

I didn't have a piece of gold mirri large enough for the card front, so I trimmed two smaller pieces and attached them across the front of the card.  I trimmed a piece of floral paper which matched the colours and flowers of the topper and layered it onto the mirri.  I trimmed a gold patterned strip from the edge of the topper sheet and attached it across the card to hide the join in the mirri.  The precoloured topper was then attached to the centre of the card with a foam sheet.

To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" ivory matt card blank
     Kanban 'Decadent Christmas' topper
     Snippets of gold mirri and Making Cards 'Christmas 2019 Craft Paper Collection' paper
