Mother’s Day Card…

Red Maple TreeI spent the day before Mother’s Day making my Mother a Mother’s Day Card.  It took me most of the day, mainly because I had the privilege of keeping Rylan. 

So, while she was awake I was at her beck-n-call (gladly).  If you get down in the floor with her she thinks that is the signal to jump on you.  I love it, because then giggles and tickling and laughter ensues.


 Elements that make up my Mother’s card.

Mother's day car element

White CS: 1 @ 5-3/4″ x 10″, 2 @ 4-3/4″ x 5-1/5″;  Pink CS: 2 @ 4-7/8″ x 5-1/2″; small Pink and Blue mats for “Happy Mother’s Day”.

Patterned paper: 1 @ 4″ x 5″; MS – Lace Doily punch;

Medallion – Mini-Monogram Cart – 1 blue cut @ 2.5″; 1 blue and 1 pattern cut @ 2.5″ with 2″ welded in center to make a scallop ring.

Butterflies & MOM Medallion  – SCAL cut file; Leaves from K&C with Glossy Accents added; Ribbon  (cut to 6″ lengths) & Rhinestone- $1 bin Michael’s; Glitter – Artglitter (Lemone, Hotkiss) and Stampendous – Pink; Sakura – glitter pen; Stickles – Black for butterfly body and Star Dust to add some sparkle  on the mats.



The butterfly was first colored with Prisma Color Pencils and odorless minieral spirits on the out edges.  The spots on the wings are glittered and then the entire butterfly itself is glittered.  The body is black Stickles and the antenne are drawn in.

The solid blue medallion is the base with the Mom medallion glue on top. I used pop dots to lift the solid blue medallion off the card.  I glued the blue scallop ring to the pattern paper scallop ring (off-setting the scallops) and then tied the three ribbons around them.  Trimmed the ribbon and used pop dots to lift it up off the MOM medallion.




The inspiration for this card came from “Paper Creations” magazine.

The finish product and of course the inside with another card for M’s attached.  Wow! She got two cards in one!
