This is a Mother’s Day card that isn’t designed to be flowery or frilly. It’s more graphic in nature with contrasting, non-traditional colors. The beauty of this card is that it didn’t involve any complicated coloring or construction techniques. Die-cutting and spacing of the word “MOM” four times was the only difficult thing.
This card is for a mother who enjoys a bold, graphic style. The only stamping was the sentiment “LOVE YOU LOTS”.
How I made this project:
- Die cut of the word MOM four times from a piece of teal colored 4.25” x 5.6” (A2-sized) cardstock. The negative space was used for the card design and not the actual die cut words. Save the letters for another card. The centers of the “O” pieces were saved and used for this project.
- A piece of ombre patterned paper in a contrasting color was adhered behind the die-cut “MOM” piece.
- Position and adhere the saved teal-colored “O” centers onto the card after gluing the patterned paper on the back of the die-cut MOM card front.
- Stamp the “LOVE YOU LOTS’ sentiment on a strip of the same teal-colored cardstock and adhere the sentiment onto the card front as shown.
- Mount the finished card front onto an A2 card base.
Supplies used in making this project:
- Stamps: My Favorite Things: From the Heart stamp set (“Love You Lots” sentiment).
- Dies: My Favorite Things Die-namics: Mom die set.
- Inks: Tsukineko Versafine pigment ink in Onyx Black (sentiment).
- Cardstock: Teal colored cardstock from my stash; Patterned Paper from an old 6×6 paper pack by Kelly Purkey called “Second City”.
Hope you like this card. Have a great day and a great Mother’s Day!
