One of the girls I work with buys my cards and she put in an order for 3 cards. She wanted one for her niece, one for her grandma (must have a pig and I have one in mind!) and one for her girlfriend. Her girlfriend is married so I couldn’t do a funny one about boys so this is what I came up with. I hope she likes it.

This was my first attempt at making ANY homemade flowers. I saw on Paper Variety these fan fold flowers so I found a tutorial and tried them. I do recommend a cardstock weight paper otherwise it tears and crinkles easy. This technique is what totally inspired this card. Thanks!!
