|Yup! Love you, Mom!|
Mother's Day is coming up! Yay! I guess. Whatever. I don't get that excited over holidays. Except for Halloween. Anyway, I made a card for my Mom (just getting how that makes me sound like a 5 year old) and this is how that happened.
- Blank 4"x5 1/2" card with envelope
- 3"x5" index cards - 2
- 3 1/2" ribbon
- MOM scrapbook embellishment
- Love rub-on
- Self adhesive heart
- Scrapbook tag
- Brads - 2
- Stamps - background stamp, letter stamps
- Inks - pink & gold
- Glue stick
- Glue dot
- Hole punch
- Brad tool
|Stamping the background.|
Run the pink ink pad over the edges of the 3"x5" cards.
|Pretty up the edges.|
Place the MOM embellishment in the lower right corner of a 3"x5" card.
|Putting the "MOM" in Mother's Day.|
Apply the Love rub-on in the upper left corner of the same card.
|All you need is love...|
That needs something more...fancy. A sparkly heart does the trick!
|...and more love...|
|and lots of love!|
Now, for the YOU tag. I started with a little scrapbook tag and stamped YOU on it with gold ink.
|What were we talking about? Oh, yeah. YOU.|
I then attached the tag to the card using two brads and my handy-dandy brad tool. The brad tool's not necessary, but it does make it much easier.
|I <3 my brad tool.|
Punch a hole in the center at the top of the card and thread the ribbon through. Hold it in place with a glue dot at the back of the card.
|Ribbon makes everything better.|
Glue the card to the front of the, well, card. The bigger card. You know what I'm talking about. Don't pretend you don't.
|Glue it down.|
Do the same with the other index card to the inside.
|Glue that down, too.|
That's all Folks! (If I'm being 5 years old, I may as well watch cartoons.)
Now I just need to figure out what gift to give her. Suggestions are always welcome.
