Here is a tutorial to make a cute Mother’s Day card. There are links at the bottom of the page for many of the materials used.
I purchased the adorable “Mom & Me” stamp set from Lawn Fawn ages ago, specifically to make my mum’s Mothers’ Day card this year. Sadly the set does not include “mum”, only the American “mom” – it seems odd they didn’t just include the alternative for everyone who is not in the USA. Still, not a problem.
I stamped the owls and the tree trunk in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. I then stamped some of the blades of grass and fir trees in Cottage Ivy Memento ink – I wasn’t sure if I would want to use them or not though.
I coloured the stamped images with Copic and Promarker alcohol pens.
I cut two cloud shapes from scrap paper. This cloud is from the XCut Build-a-Scene set “All Aboard”.
Then I cut out a circle stencil from more scrap paper. I used a die from the Nesting Circles set by Presscut
I fixed a 5″ x 7″ white card blank down to my craft mat with low-tack tape, then used more tape to hold the circle mask over it. I folded a wee bit of the low-tack tape up behind the clouds to hold them in place too.
Next, I used more low-tack tape to mask off the bottom third or so of the circle aperture. I use an Ink Duster Ink Blending Brush from Inkylicious to gently apply Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I was careful to always start on the tape or the mask and to brush onto the card blank below. I tried to keep the colour very soft and applied more towards the bottom than the top.
Then I swapped over and masked off the top of the circle with scrap paper and began applying Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to the bottom of the aperture. Again I started each stroke on the mask and brushed in. I added more ink at the bottom than the top as I hoped this would give the finished circle a bit more of a 3d effect.
Here is the end result once I removed the masks and the low-tack tape.
I added one of the sentiments from the stamp set using the Rich Cocoa Memento ink.
And then I assembled some of the stamped images on the front of the card. The owls are on a foam pad for a bit more dimension. I then added some Glossy Accents over the heart shape on the tree stump.
I add the other two owls and a sentiment to the inside of the mother’s day card, for a cute touch.
