Handmade Mother’s Day Cards

As a new mom, I know how meaningful it can be to hear the genuine words, “You’re doing a good job".  Those simple words can bring me to tears, given the day.  So, I wanted to let some of my favorite mamas know I think THEY are doing a great job. 

I mentioned the other day that I was inspired to create handmade mother’s day cards because when Nancy and Laurel brought hand-crafted gifts for us to the blogger meetup, the feeling was conveyed that they cared enough and took the time to create something with their hands for us.  I so appreciated that and wanted to pass it on.

The cards aren’t fancy or elaborate, just simple little notes with a heartfelt message.  I made them with cardstock and embellished them with ribbon, Japanese tape, stickers, rhinestones, and hole punches.  I had fun personalizing each card for the specific recipient.

I hope y’all have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

  2. The cards look fantastic, you did such a good job! Handmade cards are my favorite, J always makes cards for special occasions or just 'cause...they're not as pretty as yours, but they're the ones that bring a huge smile to my face.

  3. I knew you would find a great use for that Japanese tape! And you're so right about the power of the "you're doing a good job" phrase. Especially when you have a one year old. Especially when you have a 3 year old. I guess always... :)

  9. Just beautiful, and so thoughtful. It is always nice to receive a homemade card/gift, as it shows the love and care someone put into making your day special. I miss those finger painted cards from the girls preschool days!
