I often make cards for special occasions and so decided I would make a quick and easy card for my Mum for Mother's Day. This whole card only cost around 70p to make and can be customised to suit your purpose.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- Die Cutting Machine (If you want to cut out letters)
- Flower punch
- Gatefold card
- Floral decoupage sheet
- Silver card
- Mothers Day Peel off/Sticker
- Pre cut letters
- Pre cut flowers
- Adhesive gems
- 3d Spacers
- Glue ( I used UHU glue )
Step 2: Decorating the Inside
I stuck the floral patterned sheet onto the silver card, leaving a small border around the outside about 5mm thick. I then stuck this piece into the centre of the card.
Step 3: Cutting Out and Attaching Shapes
I cut out shapes from another piece of matching patterned paper to make a 3D effect. After cutting each piece out I stuck some adhesive 3D spacers on the back and layered them onto the central piece.
Step 4: Decorating the Front
I cut out another flower from a matching piece of patterned paper and stuck it onto the left side over the top of the inner flower. I then attached some peel offs saying "Happy Mother's Day" to the top left side.
I had some flowers and letters cut out with a punch and die cutting machine earlier. I stuck the flowers onto the bottom left side and adorned them with adhesive gems for a more 3D look.
I had some blue letters which are slightly larger than the pink letters, I glued these on first. Then using some 3D spacers I placed the pink letters on top, to give them a blue border around the outside as well as a more 3D look.
Step 5: The Finished Card
When the glue is all dry you're ready to give the card to your mum!
