The Lovely Garden

I made this a while back for Alpha Stamps and  recently came upon it. It seemed like the perfect pick me up Mother's Day card for my mom. Instead of the usual card, this one has several spots to include little notes of love, appreciation and a spot to share a favorite memory or two.

This "book" is made from chip board cards, but you could just as easily attach a few ATCs together, punch a hole in each corner and tie with a lovely ribbon.

Another option would be to use this ATC Book Box. The box could be decorated or even just wrapped like a sweet gift. Some excellent examples by Alpha Stamps Design Team Members Kristin Batsel and Lora Mahaffey can be seen here .

How about a Chipboard Birdhouse Book for those bird lovers out there. This one even comes with some adorable die cuts.

Hopefully I have inspired you to get lost in a project that not only will put a smile on your face, but also on the face of a loved one. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
