I am incredibly blessed to have so many Mother’s Day cards to make because it means that I have a lot of amazing women in my life. The love, encouragement, and support I receive from my mom, mother in law, grandmas, and aunties is something I am forever grateful for.
I thought I’d share some of the cards I’ve been working on. Like I’ve said before, I’m not much of a papercrafter but I do enjoy playing around with it. With all the beautiful card designs available in the Silhouette Design Store how can I resist?
This Mother’s Day box card is by Lori Whitlock. I’ve made a few of her box cards before and am always happy with how they turn out. They’re fairly easy to put together and they instantly impress. I used the Silhouette rhinestone setter to add clear rhinestones to the center of the flowers. I was oddly intimidated by the rhinestone setter for a while. I don’t know why because it is so simple to use and only takes a minute.
The next card is also by Lori Whitlock and it is the scalloped flowers easel card. This card was simpler but I still wanted to make it pop so I used Silhouette’s printable gold foil. I’m crazy about this gold foil you guys. It cuts beautifully and has the prettiest shine! The Mother’s Day sentiment didn’t come with it so I just typed it up in the bella fonte sketch font and used sketch pens to write it out.
So as I’m typing this up I’m realizing this third card is also a Lori Whitlock card. I find myself using a lot of her card designs without even realizing it. I guess I just like her style. This flower card is the simplest of them all. The used a different tag shape and added the greeting in lw tangerine font using the sketch pens. I added rhinestone centers to these flowers also. I like that teensy bit of sparkle it adds.
The front of this next card is simple with the Happy Mother’s Day script by Jamie Koay. I cut this out of Silhouette’s adhesive backed cardstock. Thank goodness because gluing all those pieces down would not have been fun!
Inside you’ll find this gorgeous vase filled with flowers. This pop up vase card is by Tanya Batrak. I adore her designs, especially the 3d ones. I made some of the animal masks she designed a while back. You should check them out if you haven’t seen them…they’re really cool! Anyway, this card was really straight forward to put together. I used clear rhinestones again for the flowers. I just couldn’t stop!
Has anyone else noticed that once you start making handmade cards you can’t go back? They’re kind of expected and I feel bad sending a store bought card now. Not that mine are all that great, but handmade is just better.
To all the moms and motherly women out there, I wish you a Happy Mother’s Day!
