Mother's Day Cards

Hello Krafters!

Some time ago, I started doing ten minute or less cards. I challenged myself to do this because, as my family grew, it became difficult to actually finish a card. It left me frustrated and honestly, I had no desire to craft! While my crafting has evolved into something other than paper crafting, I still LOVE to create cards from time to time. 

This past Sunday was Mother’s Day. I realized at 12:15am on Sunday, yes you read correctly, that I failed to make cards. I was tired and sleepy, but I knew I would not have time later to make any so I had to think fast on my feet. I did an assembly line to get five cards completed as quickly as possible. 

I cut three sheets of 8.5”x11” card stock in half for A2 style cards (4.25”x5.5”) and scored them using the Martha Stewart scoring tool and set them aside. I then picked up the very first paper pack on top of the pile, which happened to be G45’s Secret Garden. I also used a Glitz paper pack. I cut them using a die from MFT and the top note die by Spellbinders. After I cut the pattern paper, I went to the flower storage and grabbed some Gardenias and skeleton leaves.  I also used some hemp cord. I laid out the elements using a card I created a while back as a guide. I changed the layout slightly on each card so they would be “unique”. Before gluing everything down, I used a stamp (I cannot remember which company) for the sentiment. 

After the cards were assembled, I wrote a quick note and was done! I was turning off my light by 1:47am and heading to bed! It took me a little over 30 minutes to create five cards. Not too bad if I say so myself. 

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Until next time..Krafthead~
