Vintage Page Designs: Mothers' Day Card

March 19, 2012

Mothers' Day Card


Happy Mothers' Day if you live in the UK!  In case you didn't know, Mothers' Day is celebrated on different days in the US and UK.  I celebrate both days the American day (sometime in May) with my daughter here, but my British day with my Mum.

Here's the card I made for her.  The heart was created from an old blouse of mine that I love and just can't bring myself to throw away.  But I've worn it so much that it has holes in it!  I cut the heart free hand and sewed it onto a cream card base.

I sewed together the cream, pink and brown c/stock and stuck it all on a kraft card base.  It's finished with some vintage buttons and a Stampin' Up! sentiment.  I hope she likes it :)

While I had the fabric out on the table, I decided to make a few more cards with it.  I used a Tim Holtz flower die and some vintage brown buttons. 

I'm entering the Mothers' Day card into the following challenges:

My Mum's Craft Shop - Mum's the word
Crafty Bloggers Network - Floral
Belli Challenge - Clean and Simple

Hope you have a wonderful week!
