Make Mom Cards for Mothers Day
By Aileen Garcia

Hi there! I'm Aileen and I'll be sharing a clean, simple and elegant Mother's Day card idea today. We're making an easel card! This simple card can literally stand on its own – a perfect card to give if you want it to be displayed by your beloved mom. ;)

How to Make Mom Cards

  • White cardstock
  • Coordinating Patterned Papers
  • Stamps
  • Black Ink
  • Flower Embellishment
  • Ribbon
  • Foam tapes
  1. Make a 4.25 x 4.25in square card for the base using white cardstock. The front of this base cardstock should be scored and folded in half.

  2. Inside the card, adhere the chosen patterned paper.
  3. Then, on the lower portion of it, adhere a smaller coordinating paper, just like what is shown in the photo.

  5. Cut a single cardstock which is also 4.25 x 4.25in in size.
  6. On this single cardstock, adhere the two patterned papers, which should be slightly smaller than the base.
  7. Now, adhere this single cardstock on to the lower portion of the folded front panel of the base cardstock. It should appear that the single cardstock is only half glued to the base. Adhere a ribbon around the card.

  8. On a small paper, stamp “Mom” and attach the embellishment.

The way this card opens is by pulling the front part upward. Then, for it to stand, the smaller paper inside of the card should serve as the stopper for the front flap.
