Three Easy Mother’s Day Handmade Card Ideas to Make!
Below you will see the cards that I am featuring today. These cards uses the Timeless Tulips as well as one of my favorite designer series paper (DSP) a.k.a. patterned paper Magnolia Lane.
What I love about these cards is that you can easily make them for any occasion, you just need to change the sentiment and you are set! is that not cool? I think these cards would be great for a thinking of you, get well or birthday cards, because who would like to get tulips in the mail? 🌷🌷🌷
The Color Combo
As usual, I came up with the color combo of these handmade cards just by following the colors on the designer series paper. I cannot emphasize how easy this is when you use Stampin’ Up! as all their products color coordinate beautifully, therefore it is easy to put color combos and get all items on that color combination. In this case you can see how well the ribbon coordinates with the cards.
- Petal Pink
- Mossy Meadow
- Whisper White
Also please note that while not in the color combo, for inks I added Terracotta Tile and Old Olive. The color combo drove my decision on cardstock and embellishments as well as the selection of the design from the patterned paper pack.
The Sketches and other details
Below you will see the specific details for each of these cards as well as the sketches, so that you can recreate these cards with any other suite you might have. Give it a try and you will see how easy is to make cards with anything you have on hand. However if you want to recreate these cards exactly the same, make sure you see the supply list where I share with you which items I use. NOTE – the Magnolia Lane DSP is on the retired list so hurry up to get it as it might be gone pretty soon!
Mother’s Day Handmade Card #1
For this first card the sketch is simple, which I truly believe helps you to customize to any suite or paper pack you might have. And if you are wondering how did I made the tulip look with two tones, you need watch the video tutorial where I go step by step. As a quick reference, I stamp the tulip in a light color and then sponge with a darker color the bottom of the tulip. In this case I use the Petal Pink for the light color and Terracotta Tile for the darker color. TIP – you need to have a light hand when adding the color with the sponge.
Though the color combo calls for Mossy Meadow, I used Old Olive for the stamping of the leaves for the tulip. I did this to get a better color for the tulip, as the Mossy Meadow look really dark when put together.
Mother’s Day Handmade Card #2
The second card’s sketch is also simple, however, notice that I added and extra layer to the pieces, so it added a lot of pop to the designer series paper. I will be honest, I almost never do this, as I feel like it is too much paper on one single card, but it looks great as you can see. I might give it a try more frequently. 😉
Mother’s Day Handmade Card #3
This final card has as well a very simple sketch! I love having simple sketches because they help you when putting cards with other suites. Same as the previous one I matted the patterned paper with cardstock. Also for this particular card, I have embossed the Whisper White cardstock to have some texture on the card, rather than a just plain white layer. You will see this better on the video tutorial as the picture is not really showing the texture.
