Take a Mom-ent to Celebrate a Wonder Woman — Mother’s Day Scrapbook Layout and DIY Mother’s Day Card

Let’s be honest, mothers are superheroes and deserve to be showered with love all year round — but there’s no denying they deserve it a little bit more on Mother’s Day. (Hint, hint: Mother’s Day is this Sunday!) Whether it’s the mom or stepmom who raised you, the mother figure who made a meaningful impact on your life or even a close friend who is a first-time mama, it’s time to stop and say “thank you” to the wonder women in your life! And while generic cards or store-bought gifts can do the trick for the upcoming Mother’s Day celebration, how about trying out this Mother’s Day scrapbook layout or DIY Mother’s Day card (or both!) to really show how much she means to you (and to show off your creativity at the same time)! Happy Mother’s Day!

Step 1: From ditsy florals paper, cut a 1-1/2″ hollow frame. Cut a mauve dots paper to measure 11-1/4″ x 11-1/4″ and adhere to the hollow frame.

Step 2: From dark green paper, cut the following photo mats: 6-1/8″ x 4-1/8″, 4-1/8″ x 5-3/4″ and 3″ x 5-3/4″/ Crop photos to fit the mats and adhere to the layout as shown.

Step 3: With the largest heart from the Custom Cutting System Gemstone Patterns and the Red Blade, cut on the outside edge with the dark green paper. Adhere White Sans Serif ABC/123 Letter Stickers to the top edge of the heart to create a title.

Step 4: Using the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Blue Blade, cut on the outside edge with the ditsy floral paper. Use the cartridge housing unit of the Original Border Maker System with the Clouds Border Maker Cartridge as a handheld punch and punch around the circle. Trim with scissors if necessary.

Step 5: Using the largest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut on the outside edge with the yellow stars paper. Fold two ends of the circle on top of each other as shown. 

Step 6: From the large florals paper, fussy-cut a flower cluster and some individual flowers. Layer these pieces with the ditsy florals circular piece and the folded circle to create a “bouquet.” Adhere the large floral flowers with Foam Squares.

Step 7: From the white tiles paper, cut a 2-3/4″ x 6″ strip and notch one end to create a “ribbon.” 

Step 8: Layer the heart, bouquet and ribbon pieces to create a large embellishment. Adhere to the layout as shown.

Step 9: Add additional stickers with Foam Squares and journal as desired.
