Mother’s Day Card Crafting

IMG_3794

With Mother’s Day around the corner, I thought I’d share a card I made for my mom last year.  I tried to think outside of the box on this one, adding dimension with the twine and paper banner.  When I was little, I spent a lot of time picking wildflowers from the front yard, making tiny bouquets for my mom.  I wanted to remind her of those days with this card!

But do you want to know the secret “ingredient”?  I stamped the wildflowers with BRUSSELS SPROUTS!  It worked like magic.  All I had to do was cut the sprouts in half and dab them in an ink pad.  I stamped the yellow flowers first, and then the purple.  Next, I adhered the twine with Elmer’s glue.  The last step was to cut out a paper banner to write “happy mother’s day” on.  I decided to make a matching envelope, so I added a white circular sticker and stamped a few more wildflowers on the label.

Who knew you could find a creative use for Brussels sprouts?  I wonder what else is hiding in my refrigerator…
