Happy Mother's Day Cards.

I was gifted some beautiful papers by a Canadian Company called "Paper-Garden.ca"
They are also hosting a fun "Mother's Day card challenge"(click the link to check out everyone's cards)...you can vote on your favourite card...but with me being in true procrastinator fashion, I made my cards the last day of the challenge.
I wanted to use this beautiful shimmery cardstock for my card.
I also used this cute image from Redonkulous Designs now named Redonkadoodles Designs and coloured it up with my Copic markers.






















Here is the cardstocks that Paper-Garden.ca sent me.
Look at all of those pretty colours 💗
I wish you could see the shimmer in some of these papers.
They are all different paper weights. From really thick cardstock to very thin.

















I wanted my grandson Sawyer to make his mommy a handmade card.....you know, start them when they are young, teehee.

















I cut the base of the card out of the white thick cardstock, as well as the card front.
I then cut a heart shape out with my cricut to use as a mask.

















Here is Sawyer and I making the card.
I put an old hair dying t-shirt on him so he wouldn't get his clothes dirty...but I should have had one on too, as he kept grabbing onto me, lol.
I found out Sawyer is like his grandma Tracy...he doesn't like dirty hands, lol.






















What I wanted to do with this card was to have Sawyer put his finger prints all over the card.
But with him not liking dirty fingers...we only got a few fingerprints and then just used the Tim Holtz paint daubers to add the rest of the colour.























After adding the colour, I took the mask off of the card front to reveal the heart center.






















I searched for a Mother's Day stamp in my never-ending stash..but I could not find one.
That was until I made the Mother and Son card above and found that one on one of my Julie Nutting Prima Doll stamps....but I think the "I love you" works just as well.






















Here is the inside of Sawyer's Mother's Day card.
I figured we might as well use the heart mask inside of the card...and if I would have saw that stamp that was right in front of my face, I would have used that instead of my messy hand writing.

I am entering these cards in the following challenges.

  5. Sawyer with Gran's help did an amazing job on the card for his Mom. I like the mask heart being used on the inside - a winner for sure.
