Hi Pebbles friends! Mother’s Day is just around the corner – have you made a card yet? No? Well, I’ve got a quick and easy idea for you today! It’s Wendy Sue here today and I’d love to help inspire you to whip up a quick and easy card or two or three for a special mom or mother figure in your life!
Don’t let shaped cards intimidate you – they really are quite easy! Here’s a quick step-by-step photo tutorial to show you how I made these!
Step 1: Start by folding the card base (cardstock). Use a metal die (this is just one way to do it – you could also use a digital die-cutting machine or even trace a circle onto white cardstock and cut out with scissors) circle shape. Place the die onto the folded cardstock so the top of the die isn’t cutting the cardstock – this will leave room for the fold at the top of the card (or the side if you prefer):
Step 2: Cut a circle the same size from patterned paper:
Step 3: Tie a ribbon around the patterned paper and tie in a knot at the left side. I used a staple to secure the ribbon right in the center because I will be covering it soon.
Step 4: Tuck a printed die-cut under the ribbon on the right side of the patterned circle. Allow it to extend off the circle a bit.
Step 5: Now cut a smaller circle from a coordinating patterned paper. For this circle, choose a pattern that is less busy, or a smaller pattern scale. Use foam adhesive squares to attach it to the center of floral circle (covering the staple.
Step 6: Choose your favorite skinny thicker sticker to add the letters to spell out “MOM” on the small circle.
Step 7: Now you can choose to add a “MOM” next to the word. You could also opt to add additional flowers, stickers, or even center “MOM” and leave it alone. But I think these cute girls look like they could be fun young moms, so I’m adding them! 😉
Step 8: Attach the patterned circle to the card base! That’s it! Wasn’t it so easy?
Use the same basic idea to create a fun card for all of the moms in your life!
Happy Creating and Happy Mother’s Day!
