This Mother's Day card has a beautiful surprise inside for Mom!

Mother's Day is coming soon!  Stampin' Up! Garden in Bloom Stamp Set and English Garden Designer Paper are perfect compliments to create a beautiful card!
These are the supplies you will need to create this quick and easy card.



Cut two Night of Navy cardstock 5 x 6 1/4, watercolor paper 4 3/4 x 6, English Garden Designer Paper blue flowers 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and 2 x 4 1/4, English Garden Stripes 3 x 4 1/2 and 2 1/4 x 4 1/2, Mint Macaron cardstock 5 x 6 1/4.


Place the Mint Macaron cardstock in the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and put through the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine to create the embossed image.




Using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Mint Macaron cardstock with the Ovals Collection Framelits create two sized oval cut outs.  Use Night of Navy cardstock and the smallest Oval Framelite for the inside of card.


Create the matted sentiment tags with the Lots of Labels Framelits and the Night of Navy and whisper white cardstock.  Stamp sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and sponge edges with Night of Navy Ink.

Adhere and mat with Night of Navy cardstock and English Garden Designer Paper to front of card.  Place large oval to center and add ribbon.  Add dimensionals behind matted tag.



To create the special surprise inside of the card, pencil the placement of the vase on watercolor paper.  Stamp flowers in Night of Navy ink and use the Aqua Painter for blending.  Stamp stem in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to connect the flowers.  Stamp leaves with Garden Green Ink and blend with Aqua Painter.  Add Crushed Curry Ink for the inside of flowers.


Lightly sponge background with Night of Navy Ink.


Cut bottom of small Mint Macaron oval cardstock with scissor snips.  Sponge edges with Mint Macaron Ink.  Mat smallest oval in Night of Navy cardstock in center of vase.

  1. The card looks very pretty. Thanks for all photos. I am going to host a party for my niece on her birthday and will definitely make such a cute DIY card too. Will arrange her birthday party at one of most popular kid’s party venues in Florida. Hoping that she likes my surprise.
