Mother’s Day Week

This is going to be a busy week for me as I prepare for my first show this weekend and I have been busily making cards to show and sell.

My first lot of cards that I made are Mothers Day cards to that I thought I would share for any one needing some inspiration.

My first card is a card in a box.  I always thought they were these huge boxes made out of 12×12 card stock and were made solid, so my other thought was “where would you store them after the event?”

After some research (mainly pinterest).  I discovered how wrong I was, they can fit in a C6 envelope and fold flat.


The dimensions: 5 1/2in x the width of an A4 (210mm),  I scored every 2in on the long side. On the short side I scored at 2 3/4in.  Each piece of Designer Series paper is cut at 1 7/8 x
2 5/8in.  There is also a piece on the back which does’t get folded that DSP piece is cut at
1 7/8 x 5 3/8in.

The hearts I cut out with the heart that is apart of the Circle Card Thinlits.  The tea cup is from the A Nice Cuppa Stamp Set.  I used Melon Mambo which I stamped off first, which kind of gives it a nice watercolour effect.  I fussy cut the cup because I don’t own the Cup & Kettle Framelit Dies that co-ordinate with the stamp set.

The sentiment on the front is a piece of Whisper White cut out with the smallest dies in the Chalk Talk Thinlits and the 1 1/4 Scallop Punch.  I used some Clear Wink of Stella on the hearts which is a bit hard to see.
