4 Easy Slimline Cards for Mother’s Day + Video Tutorial

Hello crafty friends! Mother’s Day is right around the corner and today I have 4 easy slimline cards that you can mass produce and give them to the most important women in your life. I also have a video tutorial on my YouTube channel and you can take a look at it for all details on how I made these cards, click here.

So for these slimline cards I have used the Nested Rectangle Dies from Picket Fence Studios, the Slimline Floral set from Simon Says Stamp, Hey Mama dies and Mother’s Day Sentiment Strips also from Simon Says Stamp. The embossing powder used is WOW! Metallic Gold Super Fine, my favorite! And I colored the flowers and leaves with Copic markers.

My first card has a choice of pink cardstock for my card base, along with iridescent sequins and the hey mama die cuts.

The sentiment strips from Simon Says Stamp are really helpful, they came in handy for me and saved me some time.

For the second card I have Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with two floral frames and I love how all the flowers leaves look on top of this color of cardstock. The pearls gave this card a very warm touch too.

Here’s a closer look.

On my third slimline card the floral frames literally jump up from the background with this dark pink cardstock.

The use of these embellishments on this card also helped to create a more dramatic contrast.

You could’ve also had your sentiment gold heat embossed on this panel and it would’ve have looked wonderful too.

On the last card I had this dark teal cardstock that also helped to create contrast on this panel.

This floral frame is not just beautiful but it helps to create a focal point on your card.

The contrast of colors here is also beautiful and strong.

Making these slimline cards were very easy and fast. Once you have all floral frames colored and your die cuts ready then you just need glue and start putting together all pieces.

I wish all moms to have a marvelous Mother’s Day, please feel blessed for being the most strong and courageous people in this world. Hugs and kisses to all of you!

Your friend, Karen

Do you know the history and meaning of WCMD?

Cards have played an important role in social circles for hundreds of years, playing a role as a thoughtful gift all the way to a necessary part of proper etiquette. Consider, if you will, the calling card of the Victorian era, a term that has become so ubiquitous that the signature element of a bomb-maker or a criminal is said to be their ‘calling card’.

A small piece of paper bearing one’s name and often a decoration of some kind, the calling card (Also known as a visiting card) was presented to the servants of a household that it might be delivered to the masters of the house to announce visitors.

It was this era of propriety that also developed the concept of a dance card, a card specifically carried by women to fill out with the names of the men they intended to dance with that evening. After all, with so many interested parties it just made sense to keep track of them so that you could, in earnest, indicate that your dance card was full and thus politely decline an interested suitor.

Card Making Day reminds us that the best gifts come from the heart, the hands and vision of the people we love, so get out there and try making a card of your own! Nowadays, with the advancements in technology and the rise of the Internet, some people have stopped sending cards altogether. Instead, they send email cards. While there is nothing wrong with this, no one can deny that receiving a beautiful card feels a lot nicer. This is especially the case when the other person has gone to the effort of making the card!

For this fabulous blog hop I have created a Christmas card using the Texture effect additive from the WOW! Changers Lightning Kit, WOW! Red Glitz, WOW! Cramberry Sparkle Embossing Glitter, WOW! Galaxy Glow Embossing Glitter and WOW! Metallic Gold Embossing Powder.

Also, I have used this fabulous Christmas stamp set “All is Calm” by Evelin T Designs and this word die “Jolly” by Catherine Pooler Designs.
