Different Cut Mother's Day Card

I was asked to make two Mother's Day cards for a gentlemen in our church and today I am going to share one of those cards with you.  Actually last Thursday night we did this type card in our stamping class and I loved it.  So I decided to make this card in the same way.  So here it is.
Here it is partially open so you can kind of see how it is cut.
If you cut a piece of card stock in half on the 8 1/2" side, which would be 4 1/4 X 11, then take the 4 1/4 X 11 and place on the 9 3/4" mark and cut, you will have the size of this.  You will still score it at the 5 1/2 inch mark, but the one side will be shorter.  Then you can add the top portion of the card and to be honest I am not home and cannot remember the size I cut that piece.  I think it was 3 3/4 X 3 and the white piece would be 3 1/2 X 2 3/4.  I will check when I get home and correct this as needed.  Sorry about that.  But in reality you can decorate as you see fit.
So here is the inside.
I really think he was happy with this card. I had to make two, one for mom and one for the girlfriend.  Not sure which he will give to who, but I tried to make them so he could choose and they would work for both.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope your Wednesday is blessed.
