Two very special holidays are celebrated in May and June – don’t forget to create special cards to honor mom and dad for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
It’s Jill Cornell here today to share a card idea for each holiday. For this Mother’s Day card, I created with bright colors in mind and let pretty teacups and flowers take center stage. Although Mother’s Day is now behind us, you could make this card for Mom’s birthday, too.
A few glittery accents in the form of pink sequin trim and a gold sequin help give the card a little glitz and glamour for mom. All supplies are from the Soho Garden collection by American Crafts.
And for Father’s Day, honor one of dad’s special skills or hobbies by creating a themed card. I created this card for a dad in mind who loves to grill! Other ideas might be camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, sports, reading and more!
There are some easy ways to make a card more fitting for dad: 1) create with masculine colors like orange, green, navy and brown; 2) use “earthy” embellishments such as stars, buttons, twine and staples. All supplies are from the Take a Hike collection by Simple Stories.
Whether you are creating a gift or buying a gift, a handmade card will show you put a little extra thought into making Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, or their birthdays, just a little more special!
