One thing about moms: they love a handmade card, especially when it’s handmade by you!
I’ve employed the beautiful new “Tea Garden” Collection in making these two cards for my Mom and Mother-in-law for the upcoming Mother’s Day on May 10th.
The first card features a design that I like to use a lot, especially when incorporating
a vertical journal card. I trimmed the journal card down a bit so that it could be
matted with a border of the green dot paper from the collection. The green paper
was outlined (on the back) in a chenille ric-rac trim and then attached to the
center of the card front.
die by Spellbinders. I layered on one of the pretty label stickers and then affixed
the letters to spell out “mom”. The little bird was hand-cut from the “Chai” paper.
A trio of resin flowers from the “Vivenne” collection was added to complete the look.
A 4” circle was cut from the “Spiced” paper and then trimmed around the edge with a
dainty picot cording.
From the back of the “Green Tea” paper, the letter “M” and the flower around it were
hand-cut and attached to the center of the circle with foam adhesive.
The circle sticker was snipped apart and then looped around the square.
Medium sized light green Candy Dots dressed up the sticker.
With the “Tea Garden” Collection, the ideas are endless when it comes to
making beautiful cards for any occasion!
