I finally made an attempt at making photo cards for Mother's Day this year. When I was going through some pictures in a picture box, I came across a VERY old photo of my mom holding me shortly after they picked me up (I was adopted). I made a copy of it because I didn't want to ruin the original and came up with this for my mom's card:
This card was so simple and easy to make! Once I trimmed the photo, I put it on the card base. I measured where I wanted my ribbon holes and marked them with a pencil very lightly; then, I used my Big Bite to punch the holes. I affixed the piece of vellum using vellum adhesive just across the top, then used my Big Bite again to punch holes in the vellum. I put the piece of ribbon through, tied it, and added my stamped sentiment on the front. Voila! All done! I hope my mom likes it as much as I do!
My second and third Mother's Day cards are just alike, except for the names on the front. I made these two for my mom and MIL using a picture of Joseph (my youngest son):
I'm sure they're both going to love these!
The last card is one I made for my MIL:
I started with a card base and stamped several different flowers. Using my markers, I colored each set of flowers a different color and then added a little bling for the centers. The "grass" is a punched border I received from my friend Abby in a border punch swap we did in our Yahoo group Scrappin' 'n' Chattin'. After stamping the sentiment, I was done!
I hope you enjoy my cards, and I hope everyone has a great Mother's Day!
