Mother’s Day Card

Personal_Blog_Statement_2

Yep, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged.  Sorry.  It’s been a busy past few months.  I’ll be back soon with a birthday post of Caitie’s Emoji Themed Craft Party.  For now, Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I’m up on the Pebbles blog with a Mother’s Day Frame and Card Gift Set I made for my Mama.  Here today, I’m sharing another Mother’s Day card idea.

I made this card for my MIL using the pretty Spring Fling collection by Pebbles.  My card measures 5″ x 7″ and I used white cardstock for the base of my card.  I rounded the corners of the card base with a corner punch.  I trimmed the floral pattern side of the Spring Fling paper to 4 ¾” x 6 ¾”.  I trimmed the heart pattern side of the Spring Fling paper to 2″ x 6 ¾” and adhered it along the bottom of the Spring Fling pattern paper.  Again, I rounded the corners of the pattern papers with a corner punch.  I added white Glitter Tape, adhered the paper layers to my card base, and added some machine stitching around the card.

This cute little teacup is from the Garden Party collection (an oldie but goodie) by Pebbles.  I used my craft knife to trim out the center of the teacup.  I added Glossy Accents to a piece of white cardstock and sprinkled Gold Glitter onto it making sure I pressed the glitter down.  After that dried, I brushed some Mod Podge onto the glitter to make sure it wouldn’t be able to come off.  I added some more Mod Podge to the teacup and adhered it to the glitter on the cardstock.  I love the “tea” in my little teacup!  I added adorable flower Puffy Stickers next to the teacup.  Love it!

Love this grouping and layering of a Die-Cut banner, a Rosette, and more puffy flower stickers.

I used the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board to make a matching envelope for my card.

I used the Blossoms pattern paper to make the 5″ x 7″ envelope and used the Celebrate Thickers to label it with the word “Grammy.”

Love how the card and matching envelope turned out!

The card slips easily into the gold ribbon on our gift.

We can’t wait to give Grammy her Mother’s Day Gift!  We know she’s going to love it!
