There’s a special day coming up – take a peek at this Mothers Day card to make your mom! It’s quick and easy and is based on a layout I shared in my live video a little bit ago!

But be warned!

You’re going to need to have some tissue ready! She’s going to tear up something awful when she sees what you made for her!

See below for all the instructions to make this pretty card.

Mothers Day Card to Make
A pretty design with the Tulips dies on a vellum and Linen DSP background

Yellow, navy and white. A classic colour combination you can NEVER go wrong with!

What did I use? The Tulips dies and the Flowering Tulips stamps, a bit of yellow ink on my sponge dauber and a couple pieces of great paper!

The Linen Lovely in Linen DSP has been in my stash all year! And I hardly used it! But I thought it made the perfect background for this card! It’s got such a great generic design which I softened just a little with a Deckled Rectangle piece of vellum.

If you love the look of the sponging, see how to use diecuts and DSP to make a handmade card. There’s a video to show you exactly how to get the same look too!

Mothers Day Card to Make

You may be surprised to know this design is patterned after a simple card layout I shared in a recent FB Live. Although those designs (4 of ’em) featured the Sweet Citrus bundle, I changed it up to show another alternative.

Do you agree it’s the same layout?

Let’s Make It!

1.Fold Basic White card and crisp up fold line with your bone folder. Glue the piece of DSP to the front of the card.

2. Cut the tulips from the scrap piece of Basic White with the Tulips Dies and your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. On the widest part of the white bottom, stamp your greeting with Daffodil Delight ink.

3. Use a sponge dauber to pick up some Daffodil Delight ink and LIGHTLY swirl colour onto the tops of the tulips only.

4. Cut the largest Deckled Rectangle from the piece of vellum cardstock and your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. Glue the tulips to the bottom of the vellum. TIP: The tulips will be too long as cut from the die so you will need to trim off each end so it sits flush with the left and right of the vellum. Do this now.

5. Use your silicone craft sheet and a sponge to dab some liquid glue onto the back of the vellum, although you can put dabs of liquid glue where you can see the white cardstock through and you won’t see it when the vellum is adhered. (See exactly how in this video). Glue to the front of the card.

6. Add some. Brushed Brass Butterflies and one navy classic dot to embellish.

If you love the Forever Fern stamp set as much as I do, here’s another card (a tiny Christmas one!) that you might like! Or this one shows how you can decorate a gift box with the set and dies too!
