They say when it comes to giving gifts, it’s the thought that counts. What better way for a crafter to show how much they care than with a DIY card? With Mother’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to learn how to create a fun, spring-themed DIY Mother’s Day card that mom is sure to love! Find out how in today’s post!
You can create this card using any Creative Memories collection! But to create this project with the products shown, you will need:
- NSD 2019 Gift Embellishments
- NSD Project Recipe™ Kit
- 12-inch Trimmer with the Scoring Blade or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Tape Runner or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Repositionable Adhesive or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Foam Squares or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
Step 1: Cut a card base out of White Cardstock measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. Use the Scoring Blade with the 12-inch Trimmer to score at 2-3/4″ from each end. This will create a gate fold card.
Step 2: For the front of the card, cut two pieces of Evergreen Cardstock to measure 2-5/8″ x 4-1/8″ and mount them on the two front panels of the card. Cut two pieces of the daisy patterned paper to measure 4″ x 2-1/2″ and mount them on the two front panels, leaving an equal border of the Evergreen Cardstock showing.
Step 3: Cut a piece of the striped patterned pattern to measure 1″ x 4″ and cut a flag end in to one side. Tip: Use the embellishment flags as a guide to cut the flag — just trace and cut! Adhere the striped strip to the right hand side of the card being sure to have adhesive only on the paper that overlaps the right hand side and not at all on the paper that will overlap the left side (otherwise the card will be adhered shut). Use some of the NSD Embellishments to add a greeting and a cute little bee with some Foam Squares.
Step 4: For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Evergreen Cardstock to measure 4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhere to the middle panel of the inside of the card. Then, take the yellow hexagon patterned paper and cut a rectangle measuring 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ and adhere that to the middle of the Evergreen Cardstock. Use a cute little bee to embellish the bottom corner. Journal as desired.
No matter who you make this card for, they’re going to love the thought and attention to detail that you put into it. It’s a beautiful card that can be used for a multitude of spring and summertime occasions, especially Mother’s Day! What other crafty ways do you celebrate Mother’s Day?
