Mom's Birthday

My Mother turns 93 years young this month so I made this accordion  fold card by Karen Burniston for her.   This is my first time to make one of these so, as usual, I made a few mistakes along the way.  I wanted sturdiness so I used Gina K 120 pound card. It was a bit hard to fold and is a bit bulky so I will use a bit lighter card next time.

  13. Hello Kathy, So sorry that I missed commenting on this card. It is amazing and you did a wonderful job on it. Summer has been busy for me. I have two aunts that I visit regularly. I made cards for both of them and they really do appreciate them. One aunt is 96 and the other, well, I went to her funeral yesterday. She was 91, and I love our visits. I was so happy to spend time with her before she died and I was able to say good bye. I know that you treasure your Mom. This beautiful card says it all.
