Monique's Doodle Card Sketch

by Monique Liedtke

I used a "Create-A-Card" from the "Slim Sunburst Assortment" and turned it into a small mini album with photos of my 3 kids as a present for (Grand) Mother's Day. As this card is folded twice it's just perfect for this purpose! I just love all the glitter cardstock stickers of little birds and butterflies that come with this collection!!

Other materials used: Patterned Paper: Hello Spring Collection & Petite Prints; Cardstock Stickers: Hello Spring; Cardstock Alphabet Stickers: Hopscotch (Bubblegum).

Mother's Day Cards + Gift Ideas

Mom with Love

by Sherry Cartwright

To create card "pocket", I turned the create-a-card base inside out and upside down [whew!]. I stitched each side to seal the sides, then decorated with stamped tag and paper ribbon.

Flower pokes were made with stickers on skewers backed with patterned paper. Perfect for a potted plant or flower!

Mother's Day Spring Card + Gift Card

by Aphra Bolyer

My Mother's Day card had a little surprise inside. By trimming off the upper part of the third flap of a Square Baroque Create A Card and then adhering the edges to the inside of the card, I was able to create a place to tuck in a gift card. Quick and easy!

Supply List: Square Baroque Create A Card, Hello Spring 6 x 6 Pad, Colorwheel Cute Cuts, Hello Spring Icon Stickers, Hello Spring Mini Pearls.
