Mother's Day Card from Hades


Ohhhhh myyyyyyy. I spent the entire day working on this puppy. What's the lesson learned? Complicated mechanism, or intricate details, but not both.

It took forever. I mean for.ev.er. Three tries to get it glued to the backing properly. Let it dry, open it up and yikes! {Insert bad words here}

The flowers are so heavy they pull the bouquet forward when the card is opened the proper way. Solution? Turn it sideways. Pretend I meant to do it.
