Is anyone else shocked to see that Mother’s Day is just a few days away? Wasn’t it JUST Christmas???? Don’t worry, I’m here with a quick and easy homemade card idea sure to please your mom! Here’s a peek! Keep reading to see how to create your own butterfly shaped card featuring the beautiful products from the “Patio Party” collection! (And if you’re more prepared than I am, and already have your cards for Mother’s Day, simply change the letters and use these cards for any occasion!)
Start by creating a butterfly shaped card base. You can use a digital cut file, a metal die, or even find a simple template online and cut it out by hand!
Cut a piece of patterned paper to cover the front of the card base. Choose a coordinating paper and cut a second patterned butterfly. Cut it in half and place the top piece over the striped base:
Use one of the tear strips from a different paper to create the border strip between the two patterned papers:
Add a gold foiled die cut on top of the border strip:
Place a butterfly sticker or die cut next to the flowers. Be sure to glue only the middle piece, so the wings are lifted off the card:
Finally, add gold foiled thickers to spell out “MOM” on the other wing:
See? I told you it was quick and easy!!
If you’re lucky enough to have a mother-in-law, a bonus mom, or someone else to celebrate on Mother’s Day, whip up another card or two using the same instructions, but choose different papers! It’s fun to mix and match!
Happy Mother’s Day!
