Happy Birthday to my Mom!

It's my Mom's birthday today and I wanted to show you the card I mailed her a few days ago. Dave and I are actually going to be working close to my parents today, who live an hour and a half away from us and we are going to pop in and say Happy Birthday in person! She doesn't know it yet.

So here is the card I made for her:

And when you open it, this is what you see....

It's called an "Inside Step Card".....

I used the "Simple Stems" stamp set which is in the Occasions Catalog until May 31st. This is my go-to flower stamp set lately. I love how it stamps. The two flowers stamped in Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bays Inks coordinate with the Secret Garden Framelits Dies, the Crushed Curry flowers are hand-cut:

This is what the card looks like when opened with a view from above:

And closed again for mailing....

This is another one of those card folds that I cut using my SC eCutting Machine. I know there are patterns out in blog land if you search for "Inside Step Card" but I took the easy way out! Happy Birthday to my Mom!
