Happy Monday, sweet crafty friends. Lisa here with you today. I hope those of you who are moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I am not one, except for my beautiful kitties. That counts, right? 🙂 And I don’t live in the same state as my mom so I made her a Mom’s Day card below.
Mom’s Day Card Inspiration Point
I did many things the same way that Michele did, but I always follow my own flow. What my own creative, crazy brain tells me to do. 🙂
Mom’s Day Card Basics
I created my A2 card base with the fold on the vertical. And, using a die, I created my card front out of patterned paper. Using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable I adhered the card front to the card base.
Then, like Michele, I used a few dies to create my flowers out of felt. To hold the flowers securely together I used the Adhesive Dots 3D.
Then I broke out the Keepsake Envelopes. Which just make THE best and easiest shaker cards ever! I chose to use a long, skinny rectangular envelope which is perfect for the shape & the size of my card. Then I just filled it with pretty sequins.
Once I had the envelope filled and the flap sealed (there’s adhesive on the front flap and all over the back to make it transparent), I secured it in place to my card. I then used Adhesive Dots 3D and Adhesive Dots Medium to adhere and secure the flowers and leaves where I wanted them.
First, I die cut a piece of cardstock using a Doily die and cut it in half. And then stamped the word “Mom” on the center in dark blue ink. Then using E-Z Dots® Permanent I covered the backside of what I had cut and stamped. I like using the E-Z Dots® for fine details such as the Doily die since they are initially removable with a swipe of a finger before creating a permanent bond. Perfect for intricate dies!
The only thing extra that I did (after I tried to make the gorgeous bows like Michele did and failed desperately) added a little bit of ribbon to my card front. I adhered this down using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesive. This adhesive for the ribbon since it’s so perfect for vellum. It’s a great adhesive.
I love how the card turned out and I’m so grateful to Michele for her beautiful inspiration. We have a wonderfully talented team here on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.
