A Card For Mummy & A Card For Daddy

After viewing a lot of Mother’s and Father’s Day cards on various blogs,Instagram,Facebook etc recently,I got quite inspired to create a few myself…I have also been able to try out my lowercase dies for these cards which I really wanted to try after viewing so many awesome alphabet die cards by Therese Calvrid


In Australia,Father’s Day is celebrated in September while Mother’s Day is celebrated in May…so it’s a bit too early for me to create a Father’s Day card..but I’m sure all cardmakers will agree that it’s never too early to make cards for any occasion…

Both my cards are very similar and I made them both at the same time…I started with cutting the card bases to size from coloured cardstock…I then cut bright yellow and green plain cardstock for the front panel which I have embossed using the WRMK next level embossing folders…I cut these panels 1cm. short from one side only and adhered them to the card front…

I then die cut the words ‘mummy’ and ‘daddy’ from printed DSP using the lowercase dies…I die cut the same words again from craft foam and adhered the foam behind the alphabets before placing them onto the cards..

On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped,coloured in and cut out the Cuddly Koalas with their joey’s(that’s what you call a baby Koala) and placed them onto the card as well…I stamped the sentiments on thin strips of leftover cardstock from the card base and added those to the cards as well…
Finally I have used Nuvo Crystal Drops to embellish these cards…

For the first card,I have used a white card base and used distress inks to create the background on watercolor paper…the watercolor paper has been die cut using a stitched rectangle die…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped,coloured in and cut out the little gardener as well as the picket fence and the potted flowers..once these were placed on the top layer,I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card..

For the second card,I used a white card base as well and created the top layer similarly using distress inks…I coloured in and cut out two little girl images for this card and placed them above a few strips of silver foil cardstock….I then stamped the sentiment directly onto the top layer and added a few tiny hearts on it..
