Cards for Mother’s Day

A collection of Mother’s Day cards today! A co-worker asked me to make him a card for his mother, and I ended up making several for him to choose from. After he chose one, I could use the rest to give to my mom, grandmother, and friends who are moms.


First I started with a water-colored background, a Wplus9 Happy Mother’s Day sentiment and a cute little bird I salvaged from an Online Card Classes practice sheet I colored way back when. I used a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die to create a border around the panel, mounted the panel to some mint cardstock and added some yellow and clear sequins to finish it off.


For the next few cards I used the SSS Spring Flowers stamp set. I embossed several images from the set with clear embossing powder and then did some ink blending with distress ink on top of the heat embossed flowers and foliage. I cut everything out leaving a bit of a border around the edges and then arranged them on the cards.


I used a stitched circle die to create a recessed area for my sentiment (I popped the rectangular stitched panel up using some foam tape, and again used the Wplus9 Happy Mother’s Day sentiment. Once I had the flowers arranged how I liked, I attached some with glue and some with foam tape for extra dimension. I jazzed everything up with some moonshine sequins and mounted the panel onto a Fog cardstock base.


The next card is a bit simpler and has some Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets (I LOVE these) instead of sequins. This card is mounted onto a Cotton Candy card base.

This last card is probably my favorite of the bunch. Many of the same elements, but this time I used a Papertrey Ink horizontal stripes coverplate die and built up from there. I embossed the sentiment onto vellum using liquid platinum embossing powder and arranged some flowers and added some more clear droplets.

I hope all the moms out there have an excellent Mother’s Day!
