I am quite happy with how our cards for Mother's Day turned out this year, so I thought I'd share. I enjoy hand-making cards, and I maintain a stock of paper, blank cards, and supplies so I can put together cards on a moment's notice for almost any occasion.
I got out a few sets of pretty paper and let my 3-year-old choose the specific paper for this year's Mother's Day cards. She chose this colorful, funky, flowery paper.
From there, we decided how to deliver the message. I usually use a stamp for this purpose, but this year I didn't want to just say "Happy Mother's Day". I chose this stamp with a bird and cute flower that says "for you" and stamped it on yellow paper that coordinates with the main paper in brown ink. I also ran the ink pad around the outside edge of the cut-out to finish it off.
Then Alyssa helped me choose an embellishment to add a little something extra to the simple design. We chose mauve heart-shaped brads. I used my Croc-o-Dile punch to attach the message paper to the main paper with the brad as shown.
We've had a nice day of visiting with family and I'm looking forward to a quiet, relaxing evening with my kids and hubby tonight. What do you do to celebrate Mother's Day?
