Hello all!  Nicole here on the blog today.  Can you believe this Sunday is Mother's Day.  Crazy right?!  I thought I would drop in today and share a card I put together with Basis Cardstock and origami paper.  


Inspiration came from my wood fence out back and the vine that is starting to grow up the side.  
I started by cutting the origami paper at two different widths and glued them to the top of my Brown Basis Cardstock base.  



I left small gaps in between the origami paper to mimic the look of wood slats.  Once adhered trim off any over hang.  To give my "fence" the finishing touch I placed another small strip of origami paper along the top and bottom.  

Using a paper piercer and a ruler I placed holes along the length of my top and bottom 'rails'.  


I found small nail head brads and placed them in each pierced hole.  Aren't those little brads just so cute?!



I finished off my card with a sentiment, flowers, and a vine cut from Green, Light Blue, Yellow, and Dark Blue Basis Cardstock.  


I tied a bow from bias tape and from baker's twine and my card was finished. 



This card is for my mother-in-law and I know she will appreciate the handmade touch.  Thanks for stopping by the blog today and be sure to spoil the moms in your life on Sunday. :) 
Happy Crafting, Nicole
