For Ma and Pa!

It is both my mother and father's birthday next month, so I decided to set about making them each a birthday card last night. The above card is for Mum and the three dimensional image is from Paper Nation. It has been double mounted using two sheets of textured card from a DCWV block (Provo Craft) called 'The Far East'.

Due to scanning slides recently I have been reminded of my father's love of fishing over the years. I have been sharing these images with Dad, so these three dimensional papers from the Margaret Sherry Collection, (available from Heritage), seemed to fit the bill.
I used more of the DCWV papers and lots of chalk inks (as usual!).

Here is the finished concertina card, using the all three of the images.

Margaret Sherry's 3 D sheet.


  1. I'm sure they will be delighted with these, love what you've done with the fishing one.

  2. What lovely cards Lynn. I'll bet your parents were thrilled with them. The one for your mum i great but I love the fishing one for your dad. How effective is that? Very clever.
