Tutorial | Making a Mother's Day Card from Start to Finish with Keisha Campbell

I took a little (maybe a lot) of inspiration from a card I did last month to create this Mother’s day card. It is a favorite card design that I really wanted to recreate with just a slight difference from the original. I love layering pattern tags and using butterflies-every card should have a butterfly in my opinion!

1. I used an A2 card and cut my pattern paper to fit the card.

2. Use a 2in circle die to cut the peek-a-boo window into the pattern paper.

3. Punch or die-cut a 3in butterfly.

4. Adhere butterfly to the center of circle cutout with a popdot. I did a little stitching on the butterfly before adding to my card.

5. Using a tag die, I cut two tags out of two different pattern papers.

6. Tape the tags together, add a mini paper clip then add to the card.

7. On a small strip, stamp sentiment.

8. Using popdots, adhere the sentiment strip to the card.

And you're done! Nothing beats a handmade card for mom on her big day. This design is versatile enough to use for many occasions, but I hope you find use for it on Mother's Day this year, and if you do, link your project in the comments! Thanks for stopping by!

    Beautiful! Great idea to clip the tags in that position. I'd never think of that.
