I’m the worst at buying cards for people because I’ll either spend it all on myself or will fail to find a card that matches their personality. I don’t know about you, but I always like to get my mother a card for mother’s day. Unfortunately while browsing the many options on shelf, I somehow couldn’t find anything suitable for my mother, so I took matters into my own hands and created the perfect mother’s day card myself!
What you’ll need:
What to do:
- Cut out your desired card size from your cereal box and embellish to your liking. For my card, I used pastel and incorporated designs and artwork with my sparkle pens.
- Cut a piece of your scrapbook paper to fit the front of the greeting card and glue it in place.
- For added embellishment, you can cut an approximately 2-inch strip of the floral paper and glue this on the lefthand side of the card as a border.
- Take your magazine clippings to further enhance the front and back of the card to give it a more homemade feel.
- You can type out “Happy Mother’s Day” on your computer and it print out on white or creme colored cardstock to use as part of the front of the card. I simply used my magazine clippings as the print to make the design look more crafty and unique.
- Glue each piece in place and set your card out to dry.
With these quick and easy steps, you can create the most heartfelt and unique gift for your mother, grandmother, or friend. If you’re a avid crafter and have extra crafty pieces laying around, find ways to incorporate this into your mother’s day greeting card. You can even choose to deliver your nifty little design in a crafty envelope for an added touch. This fast, DIY card project will surely top off your fabulous mother’s day present!
