Creations by AR Mother's Day Customer Blog Hop

Good morning!  Welcome to my stop on the Creations by AR Mother's Day Customer Blog Hop.  If you've come here from Lenoria's blog you are in the right place, if not hop over to Lisa's Blog to start at the beginning.

One hopper will win a template of their choice from the Creations by AR shop so be sure to visit all the blogs and leave a comment, you never know which blog will have the winning comment.  When you've finished hopping through all the blogs, be sure to visit the Creations by AR Facebook page like them and leave a comment there.  You have until Saturday, May 11 to leave your comments and the winner will be announced on the Creations by AR blog and Facebook page.

The theme for our hop is "Mom's favorite color", my mom's favorite color is blue, so here is what I have done.

I used the 3D Fireplace Card template and printed it on blue cardstock.  The logs and flames are part of the template, I colored them with Bic Markits.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to decorate the front of the fireplace.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The vase and flower are from the Pagoda and Picturesque Cricut carts.  The gems are from my stash.

For the back I added a sentiment from Raindrop Echo designs.

The nice thing about the 3D Fireplace Card is that it can fold to fit into a regular A2 envelope for easy mailing.

Here's the hop list in case you get lost...




Thanks for visiting, don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win your choice of a template from the Creations by AR shop.  From here you continue on to Carmen's blog.

Have a great day.

I love cards that flatten. Mine did not this year but I'll have to keep this one in mind for next year.
