Handmade Mother’s Day Card

Mother’s day is just around the corner, this year it’s on 30th March, which gives you plenty of time to make something special for your mum.

Handmade by Jenny Redfern

Things you will need:

Diecut Card Shapes Heart S57325
Ultra Clear Tapes 3mm x 15m S57084
Silicone Glue S57100
Fine Copper Dispensing Nib K910

6" x 6" White Card
Black A4 Card
Flower Punch
Tonic Square Base Affections Die
2cm Circle 


Separate 4 heart Diecuts into the 12 hearts, with a bone folder and curl slightly.

Using the 4 largest hearts, and the 2cm wide circle, cover the circle with doubled sided tape and stick the hearts together as shown in the photo.

Stick the middle sized hearts together with Silicone Glue and fine nib as show on the photo.

Layer the medium hearts on top of the larger hearts, rotating by 45 degrees to create a floral effect.

Stick together the last 4 full hearts and add this to the centre to create the middle of the flower. Layer on top of the other two layers of hearts.

Punch 2 black flowers and stick them on top of each other using the silicon glue. Attached this to the centre of the white flower you have just created. Add a gem if you wish.

For this card we used a tonic square base affections die shape and a circle of black card to create a background for the flower. If you don't have a die cut background you can improvise and create your own.

Have Fun Crafting!
