Perhaps you made your mother handmade gifts and cards for Mother’s Day when you were small, but why not put that simple act of love back into practice this year? Today, Melissa Mann is showing us how to create a simple yet beautiful card using our April exclusives for your mom in fifteen minutes!
Good morning, everyone! If you can believe, Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away! I’m sharing a simple, yet classic card that can easily be duplicated if you’re in need for a Mother’s Day greeting.
I started by cutting out the pink striped background from cardstock using a die. I attached this to my white cardstock base and stitched it down with white thread using my sewing machine. I then chose the floral 4″ x 6″ journaling tag from the April 2017 Kit, cut it down to the size I wanted and inked the edges with a pink ink pad, adhering it to my card base with dimensional adhesive. I then adhered the Elle’s Studio pink vellum heart from the new Vellum Hearts and Stars on top of the journaling tag, topping it with the white acrylic “Mom” word from the Mom Acrylic and Wood Set. Then, I chose the “you’re the best” wood veneer and attached it directly below the acrylic word.
All in all, it took me about fifteen minutes to put this sweet card together and all I have to do is fill out the inside and slip it into an envelope and I’ll be ready to hand to my mom on May 14th. Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Be sure to remember your mom this Mother’s Day!
