Mom’s Picture Wall Card Set

April 8, 2018

I know I am a bit early for Mother’s Day, but I had an idea and had to run with it. I made a set of mother’s day cards. I plan on sending them to all the mothers in my life; mom, mom in law, grandmothers, aunts, and friends. I used a variety of critters so that each mom in my life can have one of her favorite critters.

Card 12

Details

Size:  A2 cards

Extra Details: I began each card by creating the colored panel for each card. I used three different card stocks and inks. I stamped the frames in a matching ink to achieve a tone on tone look. I colored the frame in with a white colored pencil for some interest. I used a grey pencil on one of the panels as an experiment. I didn’t like the way it looked, so I stuck to white for the rest of the panels.

I stamped one of the larger frames 12 times on some white card stock and filled each with some critters. I used colored pencils to color all the scenes in. I fussy cut each scene out and glued it to the colored panel. I did the same with a smaller frames and the sentiment.

Using the coordinating inks, I added some simple scenes to the frames on each panel. I felt that this helped to make the card for interesting to look at.

I decided my cards needed some dimension, so I stamped the larger frames on some scraps of the colored card stock with the matching inks. I fussy cut the frames out; making sure to cut out the inside as well. I adhered these to the colored panels with some foam squares.  I mixed the colors up for interest.  I did the same for the smaller frames that hold the sentiments.

I stamped and fussy cut the bows that I adhered to the heads of the larger critter form the same colors of cardstock.

I adhered each panel to a white card base. Using the ink that matching the color of the panel, I stamped a sentiment and a small critter on the inside of the card. I love this detail.
