I knew I needed to make several Mother's Day cards so that is what I started with when creating projects with the new Mother's Love Project Kit.
Here are a few that I came up with:
I wanted to design a card that had several different sized elements that folded and layered to create the front of the card. It is a really simple card to make though...lets take a look at how it comes together.
First you will need to print your elements pages....remember you can choose any of the pattern papers to print on the back of the elements pages to make them double sided and then you can create many different patterned combinations for your cards. You will also need a 5.25"x5.25" cardstock square to serve as your base.
Trim out the shapes you will use for your front folds, I used the large bracket and the rectangular tag. Then using your scoring board (best tool ever for card making!) score along edges where you want your placement to be.
Now you will want to adhere those two pieces (only on the folds) down to the cardstock base of your card.
Then you will adhere your 5.25"x5.25" square of patterned paper over the top of the cardstock base to hide your folds.
Last but not least, embellish! I used a bit of twine to close the top one and wrote my sentiment inside.
This card has an envelope on the front with a secret note inside. I will show you more about this one tomorrow when I talk about extending the life of your printable kits by getting creative with what you print on! The decorative edge punch I used is here.
This one was so simple. I used three of the large banners, layered on top of one another with the top banner "ruffled". Then I completed it with a little sewing and it was done! The finishing touch was some seam binding ribbon to dangle my charm and I am putting this card in a jewelry box I found that is the same size. And the Mother's Love charm is available here if there are any left. Cardstock color I used for this card, sugar cream by Bazill.
