Apparently, I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been busy and haven’t had much time to make cards, but I did make 4 Mother’s Day cards, so figured I’d share them. Nope, not for a challenge, though I did use the first one in a fold challenge on WeCraftCards.
Took a class a couple of weeks ago on making flowers. This was the 2nd card I made with this type of flower. Had fun with this, though the class wasn’t great. Granted, I had had my second vaccine shot the day before and was feeling pretty horrible during the class, so that may have something to do with my attitude.
This one I made for my grandmother and was according to one of the class card directions. I like the way this one turned out, though my MILs is more fun.
This is the one I made for my mom. The whole card was based around the paper I found that I wanted to use for the flowers. Unfortunately, the paper was Yupo paper which was incredibly difficult to shape, especially as I didn’t have the special tool the teacher said we needed for sweat peas. Oh well, a lot of work, but I like it. Probably wouldn’t have kept trying to shape the Yupo paper, had I not already done the rest of the card.
This last one was made for my niece, who is pregnant. This one I used pieces from a paper and pieces set. Added a couple of fun butterfly stickers to it, too. It does continue a bit inside. I’m not fond of step cards, as there is very little room to write, so I did the back “step” as a card base and glued it to the step card. It opens up to a full inside, with room to decorate a bit and write.
Granted, I did not do envelopes for any of these cards. The flower cards are hand deliver, or make a box and pay a ton to mail. So, Mother’s Day, where all will be hand delivered.
Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day, whether you are a mother, or a “child”.
