Easy card making

Handmade Mother's Day card

Card making is such a simple craft, and with Mother’s Day just around the corner there’s no better time for getting creative.

I find buying cards quite a stressful experience. Cards for relatives tend to be very stereotyped – if the men in your life don’t like golf, you’re stuffed! It’s so nice to avoid that and do something more personal.

For my quick Sunday morning make, I used:

  • Card blank from Hobbycraft
  • Plain lavender paper
  • Scalloped edging scissors from Hobbycraft
  • Lace tape from Tiger
  • Do Crafts decoupage kit
  • Foam sticky dots

You could quite easily repurpose flowers from an old card to make something like this. I try not to worry if it turns out a little rustic – that’s the beauty of something handmade!

That’s the card sorted, now on to the gift. Crochet hook at the ready! Will you be making something for Mother’s Day?
