Mother’s and Father’s Day Cards with Candace Perkins

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Elle’s Studio blog. Spring is in full bloom and some very special holidays are on the way, and Elle’s Studio has all the embellishments and goodies to help you celebrate these special days! Using the fun Mom and Dad Wood Veneer along with the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, I created a matching set of cards for Mother’s and Father’s Day. 

Supplies | April Labels, Mom Wood Veneer, Dad Wood Veneer, Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack

I started the simple 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ matching cards with a white cardstock base. Next, I cut two pieces of paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, just slightly smaller than the cardstock base to create a small white border around all the edges of the card. For the centerpiece and focal point of the card, I layered the wood veneer on top of a white cardstock and vellum mat. 

To adhere the wood veneer to the cardstock and add a bit of interest and texture I sewed the wood down with white and red embroidery floss. I love this little detail and the personal touch this adds to the cards! It’s such a sweet addition!

To finish the cards, I ran a few matching April Labels though my typewriter and added the “you are the best” sentiment. I love these two simple and clean matching cards and I am excited to see them together on the fireplace mantle at my parents house. I know my parents will love their personal cards and appreciate the time it took to create the cards just for them.  

Thanks for stopping by the blog today for a bit of inspiration. This month, try creating a personal card or project for someone special in your life. Just think about the joy that your heartfelt creation will bring!  

Have a beautiful day!
