Mother’s Day Cards | Kira Ness | April Hip Kits

Hey there!  It’s Kira and I am back with three Mother’s Day cards.  Here’s a look at all three cards:

The first card I made is using the May cut file Build a Flower.  I first cut out “MOM” using my Cricut and the Choose Happy paper included in the Paper Kit.  Then I hand stitched in pink thread around the letters.  Then I cut out all of the elements of the Build a Flower cut file using cardstock from the Cardstock kit.

I layered the different flowers and added some hand stitching.  Then to piece the card together, I layered the flowers and leaves beneath the letters.  I finished it off with some lavender splatters.

For my second card, I pulled inspiration from this layout I made about a year ago.  I started by creating my sentiment in Word, printing out in black ink and punching out with a 2″ circle punch.  Then I added a second circle under my sentiment using the Sown paper included in the Paper Kit.  I created the ribbon by cutting the Wildflower paper into 1″ strips, and the Pastry Party paper into 1/2″ strips.  Then I folded the paper over itself to create the dimensional look.

I finished the ribbon off with three tails in the same papers I used on the ribbon, cutting them at 2″ for the center tail and 1 1/2″ for the side tails.  I adhered the ribbon on Tutu Pink cardstock included in the Cardstock Kit.

For my final card I wanted to create something simple, that could be replicated easily (in case some of you were like me and waited until the last second to create cards!).  I started by printing the sentiment “Happy Mother’s Day” in a 2″x2.5″ text box in Word, printed it on white cardstock from my stash and cut it out with my paper trimmer.

I backed the sentiment with Tutu Pink cardstock from the Cardstock Kit and bumped it up on some foam adhesive.  Then I took some die cuts from the Bunnies and Blooms die cut pack included in the Embellishment kit, and layered them behind my sentiment.  I added the little hummingbird die cut with some foam adhesive on top of the sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Kira
