Don’t worry, you don’t need perfect penmanship to make this card. Of course, it is most assuredly an option to freehand the lettering instead. But, if you’re more comfortable behind a keyboard and prefer to keep your handwriting to a minimum, opt for stickers from the craft store. You shouldn’t have any trouble finding a lovely little sentiment in sticker form that perfectly describes your mom. Try to find ones that have clear adhesive to give it a more handwritten look.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Blank card (folded or flat)
Thin satin ribbon
Saying stickers (or pen if you’re hand writing)
- Mom is Going to Love This Homemade Mother’s Day Card
- In My Mother's Footsteps
- Mother's Day Gifts for Grandmothers
Measure out a piece of the thicker ribbon so when it’s folded in half it’s almost as long as the card. Cut one end of the ribbon on a slight diagonal. About a third of the way down the folded ribbon, gently tie the thin ribbon, so it just barely creates a cinched effect. It should give the illusion of a dress silhouette. Tie the thin ribbon in a tiny bow, just slightly off center. Place a small dot of hot glue on the center of the bow and attach a flower bead.
To attach the ribbon silhouette, place a thin line of hot glue down the center of the thick ribbon and press it down on the card for 10 seconds.
Finally, place your sticker at the bottom of the page. If you’re handwriting instead, you’ll probably find it easier to do so before attaching the ribbon.
