I am always on the hunt for the perfect sentiment for cards. I am fairly good at being creative with the cards and putting a lot of thought and work into the making of them - but sentiments sometimes seem to be an after thought and then I end up writing something that I don't feel meets the standard of the card. Let's face it - the sentiment is a big part of a card. Last year around Mother's Day I found this on a card....
I hope that when people look at me
they see a little bit of you.
From the moment I read this sentiment - I knew that was going to be the theme of my Mother's Day cards for this year. I am thinking this will be the Father's Day card theme too.
So.... to make this card I started from the inside out.
I cut two pieces of corrogated cardboard 7"x8". I ripped a bit of the cardboard to show the ripples.
I printed the sentiment off my computer.
The frame around the sentiment is a Victorian Floral frame from Graphics Fairy.
Along with the sentiment I put pictures of my mom and I, and my daughter and my mom.
The front piece of the card, I wrapped in lace that I adhered with hot glue and tacky glue.
Then I proceeded to decorate the front with rhinestone border stickers and flowers.
Of course I made one for my mother-in law....
and my Auntie too....
I punched holes in the card stock and attached the two halves together with binder rings. I printed another Victorian floral frame and pasted it on the back so I could sign the card and write "Happy Mother's Day"
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Mother's Day everyone!
