Heart Mother's Day Card

Here's a card with heart. You don't need a lot to create a pretty Mother's Day card she's sure to treasure. Simply cut a heart out of patterned cardstock or scrapbooking paper. Glue the heart on a piece of coordinating paper and you're done! For easy message writing, glue a piece of white or cream paper inside the card. 

Editor's Tip: Try using textured paper for even more pop! 

Patterned Jewelry Dish

Give Mom a pretty gift she can display all year. This small dish is also perfect for collecting jewelry or change.

Roll out acrylic clay to 1/4 inch thick and trace a heart shape with a toothpick. Trim off excess clay. Emboss clay with any pattern you like. Place a paper bowl upside down on a baking tray, and place your clay creation upside down on top, gently rounding the edges to match the bowl. Bake according to manufacturer's instructions. Sand with fine-grit sandpaper and paint with acrylic paint if desired. Seal with decoupage medium.

Heart String Art

Say it with string art. This Mother's Day gift is a striking way to say "I love you." To create, paint a piece of lightweight wood. Trace a heart shape using a pencil, and stencil the outline of LOVE.  Tap thin nails along the lines of the shape and word, spacing them about 1/2 inch apart. Loop a thin string from nail to nail until you achieve the desired look. Keep the pattern random. 

Flower Petal Card

A heart-shaped punch is all it takes to create these stunning Mother's Day cards. Fill a transparent bag with dried flower petals and tape it to the inside of the card. Finish the card with our free printable tags and a sweet message for Mom.
