Mom’s Week: A Final-Minute Card with Nathalie DeSousa


Good day, artful buddies! It’s Nathalie right here with a enjoyable, cute, and simple concept to your Mom’s Day card. In case you are blessed to have fun a mother or mother determine in your life, then I’m positive you might be all the time on the lookout for that particular card. So, how about creating one in a jiff with a number of Altenew merchandise?

Provides | Altenew; Specialty cardstockembossing folder, stamp set, alphabet dies Ink: Scrapbook.com; Stitched circle dies: Hero Arts; Die chopping machine: Spellbinders; Gems: Taylored Expressions; Cardstock: Hammermill

Let me stroll you thru constructing this card in minutes! First, I used a stitched circle metallic die from Hero Arts to chop a 3.5-inch circle from coloured cardstock and a circle metallic die from We R Makers to chop a circle from shimmer cardstock. I made positive that the shimmer cardstock circle was a bit bigger in order that it framed the coloured cardstock. 

Utilizing Altenew’s Delicate Backyard Craft Your Life Venture Package embossing folder, I added a little bit of texture to the coloured cardstock circle. To reinforce the feel and dimension of the embossed picture, I rubbed white pigment ink from Scrapbook.com to the embossed picture on the coloured cardstock. As soon as the ink dries (you possibly can velocity the drying time with the assistance of a warmth gun), I connected the embossed circle to the shimmering white cardstock.

I connected the circles, with a little bit of dimensional adhesive to a 4 x 5.25-inch white card panel, and glued the panel to an A2-sized white card base.


I die minimize the phrase, “Mother”, from Brushed Rose Gold Metallic cardstock utilizing the Superb Alphabet die set. I stacked and glued collectively every letter (this provides dimension to the die minimize) and set it on the entrance of the embossed picture. I reached for the Craft Your Life Venture Package and the Delicate Backyard stamp set so as to add a small sentiment to the cardboard, proper above the die minimize phrase. 

To complete the cardboard, I added a number of white shimmering gems from Taylored Expressions across the circle picture, and now it  is able to be offered to my mami.

I hope this evokes you to create your personal Mom’s Day card! All you want is a couple of minutes, a die chopping machine, and Altenew! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Completely satisfied Mom’s Day!
