Swallow and Lace Heart Happy Mother’s Day Card

Hello everyone, This is Yana Smakula and thank you for joining me today! With Mother’s Day approaching fast I’d like to encourage you to create a beautiful Mother’s Day card you can give to your mom, mother-in-law or grandma.

I pulled a few of my all-time favorite dies from Spellbinders as well as some new stamps from Stephanie Low to create this project. Hover over the image below to see everything I used to create this project.

If you’d like to re-create this project, follow these simple steps:

  • Die-cut and emboss heart using die from the S5-204 Lace Hearts Etched Dies Set out of white cardstock.
  • Die-cut and emboss two hearts using dies from the S4-136 Classic Heart Etched Dies Set – a smaller patterned paper heart and a slightly larger vellum heart.  Adhere patterned paper heart onto vellum one. Foam mount onto white cardstock heart.
  • Create an A2 top folding card base, cover front using floral patterned paper from the Pretty Posy 12 x 12″ paper pad from First Edition. Create a 4 x 5.25″ panel out of vellum, foam mount onto card base to mute a part of the pattern.
  • Adhere heart cluster onto vellum.
  • Stamp & die-cut birds from the SDS-065 Swallow Stamp And Die Set by Stephanie Low. Color using Copic markers.
  • Stamp “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment from Clearly Besotted “Message Me” set in black ink, trim into a strip and foam mount onto a card. Foam mount birds next to the sentiment.
  • Embellish your card using clear droplets in small and medium size from Pretty Pink Posh.
