Hey everyone! It is EK here and with Mother’s Day just around the corner (it is May 12th, just in case you missed the memo)! I thought I would whip up a super simple mother’s day card for all the fashionable mothers out there.
My mother is the woman who has most influenced my fashion choices through life and I thought this card would be a super fun way to stay thank you to her this for teaching me how to be a lady.
To create this fun mother’s day card, I pulled out Krista Schneider’s Fashions 2 stamp set and a collection of Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step One: Trim a piece of 12×12 White Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. In copic friendly black ink, stamp out the images from the Fashions 2 stamp set.
Step Two: Color in the images with a collection of alcohol markers. I used copics. For the green I used YG61, YG63, and YG67.
Step Three: For the red areas I used R32, R35, R37, and R39.
Step Four: The white/beige sections were colored with E40, E41, and E43.
Step Five: The few blue areas were colored with B91, B93, and B95.
Step Six: Give each image a glow tracing the outside of each colored area using the white/beige markers. I used E40, E41, and E43.
Step Seven: Die cut the colored images with the largest Stitched Squares die.
Step Eight: Trim a piece of Dusty Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 and score it and fold the cardstock to create a 6×6 inch card frame.
Step Nine: Die cut a piece of Celadon Green Soft Finish Cardstock with the largest Stitched Squares die set.
Step Ten: Adhere the green die cut crooked to the card frame with some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere the stamped and colored cardstock over the green crooked as well.
Step Eleven: Place a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the back of Dusky Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock. From the Words 3 Holidays, die cut the sentiment so that the adhesive is onto the back of the die cut words.
Step Twelve: Stick the words onto the finished card.
For all you mothers out there, Happy Mother’s Day. For all you daughters out there, remember to thank you moms for the lessons they taught you. And to my mother, thank you for teaching me to always dress like a lady.
