Today I made a trio of Mother’s Day Cards for some important ladies in my life. Luckily each one had a favorite animal and I have a stamp of each animal. The card design is the same for each card; I just changed the colors and animals.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 cards
Extra Details: I began by die cutting a panel for the front of each card. I also die cut the word Happy from each panel. While my die machine was out, I die cut three banners from white card stock also.
Next, I stamped the images. I used grey ink so that the images would appear softer. I filled in some of the open spaces with the small hearts. I used colored pencils to color in the images.
Then, I adhered the panels to the card bases. I stamped the large Happy in the die cut on the panel, making sure to line it up carefully. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment on the banner and adhered the banner to the card base.
