Vintage Mum

So I was after a soft vintage look to this concertina mum card.  the template came from Cardmaking Paradise

All paper and elements came from C&C Victorian Ladies & Butterflies Kit, the edges were all inked with Victorian Velvet.  I created the faux pearls with cosmic shimmer glue.  For the flowers on the box I cut circles of paper, scrunch up and spritz with water then scrunch and twist, allow to dry, then ink the edges and glue together.


  1. Ahh... what a lovely card you mum will be over the moon with it.

  5. This is so cool Lainey!!! It is brilliant really! I love that is folds to it's own box. Is this your own creation or did you follow a pattern? I would love the pattern!
