Mother’s Day Card

The Mother’s Day Card I am sharing today takes a little longer than most of the card tutorials I post, but as you can see – it is completely worth it for this super-cute card.  As with all of my cards, feel free to make it your own with different papers, colors, and sentiments.  This would be adorable as a birthday card for just because card, as well.

  • 5″ x 10″ pink card stock
  • 2 – 4.75″ x  4.75″ striped papers
  • Treat cup
  • 4 self-adhesive pink pearls
  • Small scrap acetate or plastic sheet**
  • Brown ink pad
  • Sponge, optional (for distressing edges)
  • Pink baker’s twine
  • Pink glitter
  • Butterfly charm
  • “With Love” stamp
  • “Happy Mother’s Day” stamp
  • Large oval punch
  • Circle die cut to fit treat cup (or craft knife and mat)
  • Pink card stock
  • Dark pink card stock
  • Adhesive
  • 2 pop dots
  • Paper cutter
  • Scissors


  1. Fold 5″ x 10″ pink card stock in half.  Crease well.
  2. Distress all four sides of folded card with brown ink.
  3. Distress all four sides of both striped sheets with brown ink.
  4. Adhere striped sheets to the outside of the card, both front and back.
  5. With the oval punch, cut 9 pink ovals and 8 dark pink ovals from card stock.
  6. Distress all the ovals with brown ink.
  7. Stamp “Happy Mother’s Day” on one pink oval and set aside.
  8. Arrange the other ovals, as shown, to create a flower pattern on the front of the card.
  9. Determine where you want your treat cup to go, use your die cut machine to cut the corresponding hole to fit the cup (or, use a craft knife and mat to cut the hole)
  10. With the hole cut, carefully stamp your sentiment on the inside of the card, so it will show through the clear treat cup.
  11. Turn the treat cup upside down and fill with about a teaspoon or so of glitter.
  12. Using your scissors, carefully cut a circle to cover the opening of the treat cup to contain the glitter.  Adhere this circle to the back of the treat cup.
  13. Open the card up, adhere the treat cup to the card, so the cup is on the outside.  (Treat cups are usually self-adhesive, if not, apply plenty of adhesive.
  14. Wrap the bakers twine around the treat cup twice and tie a knot.
  15. Thread the butterfly charm on the end of the baker’s twine, tie a second knot, then a bow.  Trim the ends as needed.
  16. Using pop dots, adhere the oval with “Happy Mother’s Day” to the front of the card as shown.
  17. Apply four pink pearls to each corner.

**A plastic page protector works great, if you do not have acetate for scrapbooking.  In a pinch, a strong storage bag can be used as well.
