Hello Paper Crafters!
Although my first post for a handmade Mother’s Day card was quite early, we are so much closer now (where does the time go?!). I hope you enjoy this greeting card, it was really fun to make.
I was staring at my Mama Elephant Lunar Animals stamps last weekend wondering what I could come up with as an idea for a Mother’s Day Card and came up with this: Hoppy (bunnies hop) Moothers (cows moo) Day, We Ruff (Doggies ruff) Ewe (a lady lamb). So it was decided, I started stamping the four little darlings out in preparation to use my new brush markers. Colouring is just so therapeutic!
Next, I was trying to think of ways to arrange these little darlings into a scene with my chosen saying. I thought maybe a cute lil’ barn? A green, luscious field? Naw! I went with some cute lil’ polaroids.
For this greeting card you will need the following supplies:
- Mama Elephant Lunar Animals Stamp Set
- Stamp Pad
- Cardstock (white and chosen colours)
- Markers, or your colouring weapons of choice
- Polaroid Template (I purchased my template from the Silhouette Design Store)
- Alphabet stamp set (I used this stamp set I got at Michaels that click together and apart to create words) – or if your calligraphy skills rock totally just write the words out!
- A few sequins
Stamp, colour, and cut out your lil’ critters. Get your polaroid frame ready (I used my Cameo for this) and glue your little friends to the four corners of the frame. Now that the animals and frame should be one piece, attach it with glue to the front of your card. Stamp, cut, arrange and glue your words to form the phrase on the card. Lastly throw on a few sequins, because well, you only live once and there should be more glitter and sequins in everything, period. (Ohh man did I just #yolo about glitter and sequins!?)
Anyways, back on topic. Just plain ol’ cute right!? I love this Mama Elephant stamp set and have used it quite a few times already on a few card projects. The possibilities are endless. I think this is my favourite card I’ve used them on to date though.
What handmade greetings cards have you dreamt up with this stamp set? How about Mother’s Day cards in general as well? I’m curious and would love to see your work, so please leave me a comment so I can check out some of your paper craft adventures.
Until next time fellow homemade card lovers!
