Miss you, Mom – card

Hello, it´s my turn to share another card tutorial over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. Now, I haven´t seen my mom since Christmas 2019 due to the pandemic, so for this Mother´s Day I made a card that says what I feel. I could imagine that there are other people out there, who a dealing with the same problem, so I thought I´d share this card with you all today. But if you would rather like to say that you love your mom, then just change the sentiment. Easy!

For this card, I´ve created an easy-to-follow photo step-by-step. Here is how you can create this card:

Step 1: Start by die cutting 3 sets of the Ginko leaves from white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 2: Use green, yellow and pink Distress Ink tones and ink the die cut Ginko leaves.

Step 3: Cut a piece of blue cardstock to fit your card base size. Then adhere the inked Ginko leaves onto the blue cardstock either with Clear Double Sided Adhesive or liquid glue – whatever you prefer. Next cut off all excess pieces with scissors.

Step 4: Take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and using the Build Your Own Sentiment 1 stamp set, stamp the word „mom“ with black ink onto it.

Step 5: Take a piece of white foam rubber and attach it onto Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet, then take the Blackboard Alphabet die set and die cut the words „miss“ and „you“ with your die cutting machine. Arrange and adhere the words onto the background piece. Then fussy cut the word mom into a suitable size and add Craft Drops for decor. When the drops are dry, adhere the piece onto a card base. I also stamped and fussy cut a little heart from the same stamp set and added it to the card, but that is totally optional.

This is how the finished card looks like. And it is still flat enough to put into mail! I hope my mom likes the card and I hope you enjoyed this little card tutorial. And like always, by changing the sentiment and the colours you can use the same basic idea for different occations!

See you again next month with another Elizabeth Craft Designs tutorial.
Happy crafting,

So Sorry!

Hello lovelies and happy Monday! First of all I´m sorry that I haven´t been posting so much the past days, but I have been very busy preparing videos and projects for later this month for you to see.

See, I´m preparing for a surgery, so I´m also trying to get my blog up to date with something to share BEFORE I go in.

But I am stopping by to share a card with you today too. This one fits today´s theme – a card for saying sorry. I used a pre-printed Project Life card as my card background and then stamped the funny creature onto white cardstock and colored it with watercolour pencils. After fussy cutting it and die cutting the alphas I just adhered everyting on place and the card was done.

I really like how this card turned out! I´ll be sharing a mixed media project on Sunday, so do stop by, if you want to see that :).

Wishing you a great week!
Happy crafting,
Sanna
