Mother’s Day was not too long ago, and this year I was totally prepared with the perfect gifts for Hubby’s mom. She is a fabulous quilter even though she hasn’t been doing it for long, and I had found some fun quilting books at a local thrift store. So I just had to pick them up for her. I also grabbed some fun quilting and sewing magazines to send to her as well. But I couldn’t send this all to her without including a Mother’s Day card too! So I made one for her.
This card was actually inspired by one of the quilts I saw in one of the magazines I had purchased for her. The pattern was simple enough to imitate with paper, and it was a great way to show off the fun designs in the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper pack.
It’s hard to see in the photo, but I added some diagonal score lines over the DSP panel to give it more of that quilted look. The fabric flower in the corner was made with the Summer Smooches Designer Fabric and a Designer Fabric Brad. I glued the flower onto an alligator clip so my MIL could take it off the card and clip it onto her purse if she wanted.
Sadly, the Designer Fabric Brads are no longer available 🙁 But you can buy that awesome Designer Fabric in the new Idea Book & Catalog! Yay! I even made a tutorial on how to create the fabric flowers! So you can create a fun card embellishment and/or clip too!
Oh, and in case you were wondering, my Mother-in-law loved the card and the rest of her presents, too.
Coming Up: More quilt-inspired cards.
