Stampin' Up! Crazy About You and Hello You Thinlits Card

Stampin-up-hello-you-crazy-about-youToday's Mother's Day card idea is one of my favorites using the Hello You Thinlits and the Crazy About You stamp set.  I think it's the little details that make this card so special.  Using a combination of Stampin' Up! products, it would be a lovely birthday card with a simple change of the sentiment.

Let's take a look at those little details in the video tutorial below or you can catch it here on You Tube.

Let's take a look at some of the Stampin' Up! supplies used on this card:
