I am thinking ahead to Mother's Day and if you are too how about this for a fun big MOM card that can be made out of virtually any paper combo and I used 6 inch letter dies along with some flower embellishments and a button.

The fun part of this gate fold card is that when it is closed the first and last M of MOM meet to make 1 big M.

I die cut 2 M's out of different striped paper and 1 O out of paper that had all different words for Mother.

I used some old cardstock from the office supply stash I had around for the base of the gate fold card.

I glued each of the M's down to a piece of cardstock in the same mirrored position and folded it down the center of each M and then along the inside edge of the M.
Then I cut a piece of cardstock down to the size of the O and glued them all together.
The then trimmed up the top edge of the card when it was all folded closed.

To add one fun little touch I glued a few layers of pressed flowers together along with a pretty flower button.
If you add a paper clip this can keep the card folded closed too.

How to make a Super sized die cut letter book cover

If you like experimenting with colorants, adhesives and coatings in you art making and crafting I have a few fun tips and tutorials for you today. I was given a Smash Pocket Folio for Christmas and I thought I'd start altering it by working on the cover.

Being that my name starts with "S" that was going to be my giant 6 inch die cut letter to embellish the big cover.

I posted a while back a tutorial on how to make watercolor paint with eye shadow and I was wondering how it would be to use the eye shadow directly on paper.

I wanted to get a twofer out of this eye shadow edging technique so I placed the diecut on another piece of paper and held it still so that as I applied the eye shadow along the edge with a Q-tip I would get another letter S.

I chose the pink outline letter S with a recycled dictionary page featuring words that begin with the letter S behind it to embellish the junk journal cover.

I first spritzed a light coating of the new spray on Matt Mod Podge onto the cover and placed the recycled dictionary page on it.

Then I spritzed another coat over the page and placed the die cut window outline of the letter S.

Finally I spritzed a final coat of Spray on Mod Podge onto the eye shadow embellished letter S.
It worked great and didn't smudge the eye shadow at all!

First up I ironed some Heat n Bond onto the back of some cute pink polka dot quilt fabric.

Then I die cut the giant 6 inch letter die X first.

Then I lined up the 6 inch letter die "O" and secured it with a bit of washi tape so it didn't shift out of alignment while die cutting.

Two perfect 6 inch die cut block letters ready to iron onto a pillow case to upcycle it for Valentine's Day.

I slipped the pillow case over the pillow and used a bit of washi tape again to place the iron-on die cut six inch letters.

Then I slipped the pillow case off, pealed the backing paper of off the die cut letters and ironed the die cut letters X and O onto the pink plaid pillow case.

I am looking forward to adding all sorts of words and letters onto everything using these new 6 inch letter dies.

You too? Leave a comment and I'll keep you posted when they become available!
