With Mother’s Day coming up within a week, this sweet swirl heart mom card was created with my mom in mind. I know she is going to love this one! My mom loves flowers so adding them with sunny colors will bring a smile to her face for sure.
To dress up the flower centers with Adhesive Sheets and microbeads to make them something special. I’ll show you how so let’s get started!
Swirl Heart Mom Card Base Layers
Make a rectangle-shaped white card base. There will be two card panels. The bottom panel is a creme-colored panel lifted up with 3D Foam Squares White Mix and adhered to the card base. Next, die-cut and emboss a pierced rectangle shape from pink patterned cardstock that was adhered to the card base again using 3D Foam Squares White Mix.
Swirl Heart and Banner
Die-cut a flourished heart shape from gold cardstock. As a focal element, I wanted to give it dimension so I lifted it up with 3D Foam Strips. To fit behind the intricate design, I cut the strips into smaller pieces with a craft knife to prevent them from sticking out from behind. Then I centered it on the layered card front.
The letters MOM were die-cut and embossed from dark grey metallic cardstock. Adhere the letters onto a hand-cut white banner using 3D Foam Strips. I used a left-over heart die cut from the flourished heart so I added it in the letter O with a tiny piece of 3D Foam Strips. Isn’t it cute?
To finish the card, I wanted to stack a couple of mulberry flowers. But the center needed something other than a dull gold brad. So I had an idea! I tapped the top of the brad with a piece of leftover Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch to make it tacky.
Next, dip the brad into a jar of black microbeads. I pressed the beads into the brad to secure and covered. Now I can stack the flowers and thread the brad through to create a unique flower center! So fun and easy…no special machine to achieve this. Another way to Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside!
Finally, adhere the flowers to the card front using 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Voila…the Swirl Heart Mom Card is ready to send or gift to your mom!
Wishing you happy crafting!
