Happy Monday friends, and welcome to Mother’s Day Week here on the blog! This week our design team has cooked up some fabulous project inspiration to show the mother, grandmother, or mother figure in your life just how special they are. Kimberly gets us started with a beautiful card she made with the Mini Alphabet Punch Board!
Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a special card for Mother’s Day. There is no doubt how special the word “mom” truly is. The word evokes the love we feel for our moms, or mom figures. And for those of us fortunate enough, we know how the name “mom” sounds when coming from our children. (Except maybe after they scream it ten thousand times in row. Wink, wink.)
To keep the focus on mom and the love we have for our moms, I used the We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board to create the letters “M-O-M.”
Turns out, the way you put the paper in matters! Be sure to note when you punch your letters, which way you need the pattern to appear. After making the first “m” incorrectly, I saw that I needed to turn the paper sideways.
To embellish the letters, I used a Font Punch. These clever punches create shapes to add to your letters.
I punched several leaves from green cardstock using the Font Punch Serif Punch-Elegant. It creates three different shapes with one punch. I chose to only use the leaves, as it worked into my flowery theme.
On a couple of the leaves, I added Lovely Day Puffy Stickers with flowers. I also added the word love to my card. This embellishment from the Lovely Day Ephemera pack has rose gold foil on it, adding a special touch
This card is larger than normal, as it is an A9 card. I see my mom on Mother’s Day, or send her a package, so slipping this large card into her gift is easy.
Have you started a card for your mom or mom figure yet?
