Heart 2 Heart Challenge, week 5, Mother's Day gift

This week for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge, we were to make a Mother's Day card or other project. Check out The Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog to see all the other great projects.
For my Mother's Day gift, I made a card and gift card holder. All products used are from Close To My Heart. I got this idea from the June 2010 Scrapbooks Etc. Magazine. They made one for a graduate on page 94.

The outside of the card is a picture of my mom and myself. I was only a few months old in this picture. I used some paper leftover from our Felcity kit. Felcity was a Constant Campaign last fall. I really like this paper and wish I had more of it. The word "love" is from one of our rub-ons. For the flowers, I used our Create-a-Shade paint mixed with sorbet ink and painted the flowers. I also used one of our new fliagree charms in the center of it.

The inside of the card holds a gift card holder.

I used the stamp set from the Felcity set to stamp some birds and a flourish. My mom has three kids, so I made three little birds.

Here is the first side of the gift card holder. The empty spot will get a gift card, but I just haven't been to the store to get it quite yet.

The other side of the gift card holder:

I made little pull out cards with pictures of my kids for her.
The card all closed up:

When making this card, be sure to leave room for the gift cards. I made a corner fold of about 1/4".
