horray! it is almost mother’s day!! if you read wednesday’s note you will already know the theme of these cute and very easy mother’s day cards.
but wait! there’s more!
i have a giveaway today!
stay tuned to the bottom of this post…..
how-to: Mother’s Day card
first: get your supplies
*a blank card for decorating
*your fave piece of vintage music (or other really cool paper)
*A quote about Motherhood from your computer, a fave image about Mothers, a photo….you choose!
*some embellishments—flowers, ribbon, found objects–be sentimentally creative!
*runners tape or other paper adhesive
second: Cut your music to fit your card
third: adhere music to card
using a tape runner (recommended) or glue place the music on your card. You may wish to leave a bit of a border around your vintage piece. I chose this piece of music that was a bit frayed and had blue type ink—fabulous!
fourth: Print out your quote/image
check out my blog roll for the link to the daily drop cap. this genius has designed several capital letters for blogging, crafting and the like. that is where i got my “M”. i just copied and pasted to a word document and then added my own words. i also chose to print out on paper i tore out from an old journal. you can use regular paper, cardstock, or get fancy with vellum!
fifth: cut and place your print out on your card and embellish!
place your print out using your tape runner or glue anywhere you wish on your card. i used some cute little flowers, but just about anything special to tack on there will do!
Ok…so here is the fun part!
i am giving away a set of four of these cuties!! “but, it’s too close to mother’s day,” you say? “I will never get them in time,” you claim!
not to worry! i will still give you four cards, but the winner gets to choose the theme! (thank you, hello, birthday, fathers day etc.).
