Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).
Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog
A Mother’s Day Card
I was asked to make a mother’s day card at short notice for the boss of our carers. Not large and blingy this time, just nice. This is what I came up with.
What I Did
I started by using Canvas to lay out a suitable greeting and chose a rose image that is supplied with the software as well.
I set these to foil on my Scan’n’Cut while I set out an insert in Publisher and printed it.
I then coloured in the rose with alcohol markers before cutting it out. I used a trimmer to cut out the greeting before rounding the corners with a punch and then matting it directly onto a maroon cardstock. This was cut to leave a border of around 1cm and again the corners were rounded.
I scored and folded in half a sheet of red cardstock before I attached the matted topper using foam tape.
I then placed several corner foiled stickers (may be old Glitter Girls ones, I’m not sure as I’ve had the pack for years) in the card corners and top and bottom of the matted greeting.
I stuck on the rose to go over the edge of the matted greeting and onto the base card using glue.
What I Used
- A4 Adorable Scoreable Cardstock – Red and Maroon
- Corner Punch
- Paper Trimmer
- Brother Canvas
- We’R’Memory Keepers Foiling Quill

- Foam Tape
- Corner Foiled Peeloffs
- Hunkydory Alcohol Markers
