Mothers Day Cards

As its Mothers Day this Sunday (in the UK) I spent some time yesterday making cards to give to mine and my husbands Mums. I love making cards, I make all the cards we send, I find it really relaxing and being creative on a small scale is right up my street!
I decided to make a few different cards and then choose my favourite to give to our Mums. The others I will keep and use later. So here they are:

For this first one I drew a cup on the back of some pretty paper and then cut it out. I cut out a saucer shape from some card that I thought matched and then added some pretty ribbon at the bottom. I quite like this one although the ribbon doesn't look straight in the photo and my cutting could have been better, but overall not bad. Also the Mothers day message can easily be replaced for something else.

For this next one I stamped the teddy image and then coloured it in.I think with the pretty paper and the ribbon it works quite well. Although again the ribbon doesn't look very straight! Also as this doesn't say Mothers Day on it, it could easily be used for a birthday.

This last one is my favourite! Again I stamped the teddy image and then coloured it in. I love the purple paper and the matching button too, I think this will be the one I copy and send to our Mums.

Well I had better go and finish making them so I can get them in the post tomorrow!
What are you doing for Mothers Day?
Do you make cards?

  1. I feel exactly the same way you do about card-making---relaxing and on a nice small scale, I love it! I haven't had time to do any for while, I should fix that.

    Your cards are lovely---I especially love the handcut teacup, the paper is so pretty and you did a wonderful job with the shape. The coloured-in stamps are the sweetest things ever, too. Mother's Day here in the states is in May, but this makes me want to make my mom a card right now!
