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?
