Hello everyone, today kicks starts my Mother’s Day series 2018
With Mother’s Day only a few weeks away here in the UK you have plenty of time to make something wonderful.
Every day this week I will share a different Mother’s Day themed project, so first up is this very easy Rocker card.
I thought this style was perfect for a Mother’s Day card.
I had lots of fun making this because I had my mum join me in my tutorial, she is also a crafter and we enjoy crafting together and always have a giggle.
To make these cards you will need…
Coloured card to cut an 8.1/4 diameter circle. If you’re using a compass you need to set it at 4.1/8″. I mentioned in my tutorial about possibly using the Xcut Shape Cutter which I have used before. I wanted to check the size first as I suspected it would possibly be smaller then 8.1/4″ and it was, however, you can still use it and just have a smaller card as the largest circle in this set will give you a 6″-7″ circle.
1 piece of 8 x 3.3/4 patterned paper, I’ve used the beautiful Dovecrafts, Nature’s Grace 12 x 12 paper pack from Hobbycraft.
A nest of square dies for the sentiment.
Sentiment stamp of your choice for the front.
Flower dies and punches to decorate. In the tutorial, I used a heavy ball ended stylus to distress and shape the die cut flowers, these are my mums and I love them…It turns out they are actually a sculpting tool used in pottery making, you can get them on eBay
Embellishments and ribbon.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.
I Hope you enjoyed my first Mother’s Day project for this year’s series If you would like to see last years Mother’s Day projects you can find my YouTube playlist here.
