Last Minute Mother’s Day Card Ideas

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi friends,

Svitlana is here today. Mother's Day is around the corner and I'm sure we all prepared cards for important women in our lives. But I'm still want to share a couple of ideas for such cards. Which of course can be utilized for any other purpose.

I cannot say, that they are quick and easy 10-minutes to make ones. But they're definitely on a simpler side.

The first card is a stubborn to take photo of. As it has kind of hidden sentiment on it – dry embossed with dies MOM word. I had to sacrifice brightness of my photos to make it actually visible :)

First I dry embossed the word using alpha dies from Bold Alphabet Die Set onto a Solar White Cardstock panel.

Next I stamped a dahlia flower with leaves using stamps from Dahlia Blossoms Stamp Set and Ruby Red, Puffy HeartEvergreenForest Glades Dye Inks and cut it out using scissors. Part of O and M letters were also dry embossed in this cut piece.

The flower was foam mounted onto the panel, with dry embossed letters aligned.

On that point I wanted to add some accents, as my card happened to be too clean for me lol. So I added some ink droplets using small brush.

The panel was foam mounted onto a white card base. To finish my card off I added several Marshmallow and Crystal Clear sequins of different sizes.

For my second card I first stamped a couple of azaleas using stamps from Springtime Azalea Stamp Set using Cotton Candy, Ruby Red,  Industrial DiamondEvergreen and Forest Glades Dye Inks onto a Solar White Cardstock panel.

I made several die-cuts of M and O letters out of Solar White Cardstock (5 for O and 10 for M) and made DIY-chipboards for 2 Ms and O adhering them together. After that I adhered them onto the panel. Which was foam mounted onto a white card base after.

Several clear droplets finished off my card.

As I mentioned before, they're weren't the fastest cards to make. First of all because I used multi-layered stamping which can take some time (not a lot but still). But it was just my choice. For these designs any images will work.

Have a wonderful day and Mother's Day weekend!
