Authentique "Grace" paper line

Last week I received A prize pack of paper from Authentique. So my goal this week is to show everyone the possibility's of this line. Today I have made a Mothers day card.

First I cut my card at 41/2 x 12 and I used Tim Holtz Plaque & Postage On The Edge Die to cut the edge. Then I scored the card 4" and 8".

On the left side fold I used Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Photo Corners, Baroque. And this gave the card a perfect closer.

I cut a slit in the right side fold for the ribbon and tied a knot in the front of the card.

I used My Creative Time Scalloped Stitched Heart Die. I love the layers of this die. Pop dot the green heart. And tied a knot with some antique seam binding.

This paper line has some nice matching chipboard tags. And this makes card making vary easy.  

I used my Cricut to cut some flowers. I used the Lovely Floral Cart. Flower 4-s cut at 41/2", 4", 31/2" and 2". Glimmer Mist and curled the petals.

                                 And finally the front of the card is finished.

Thank you for reading and have a crafty day.

My Minds Eye Layout

Today I would like to show how to make a nice layout with paper that has built-in embellishments.

when I am in need of a quick layout I like to use My Minds Eye Paper, Lost and Found Two.

This paper has glitter, stamps and lines for journaling. All you would have to do is mat some of your pictures add some stickers and you would have a professional looking layout.
Of course I had to do a little more that that. If you want more details of this proses you can check out my Instagram link. I am entering this layout in the My Minds Eye April challenge. your pics have to be about an April fools joke or something funny. I chose the funny.
We spent Easter with my dad at the nursing home. And I told dad to give me a better smile not a smirk. Of course he had to argue with me that this was his best smile. I told him you are not smiling unless you have your mouth open. And this was his response.
Just imagine a vary long and loud groan coming from him!!! The picture is blurry because I was laughing so hard. He showed me! And I love Laurens response.

Thanks for reading and have a crafty day
