Here are the rest of the Mother’s Day card samples for the Achievement Day Girls card class. This time I used Hearts. Just a Note: The girls used these samples as a springboard for the own creativity so none of their cards looked exactly like mine. I do enjoy watching children using their own creativity. And they all had a fun time – which is important. Their Mothers will LOVE the cards because their daughters made them.
BASIC INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Card Stock. Color Combinations A. Melon Mambo & Pink Pirouette, B. Perfect Plum & Whisper White, C. Choose your own colors 2. Cut your Card Stock.
~Card base is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
~Card front for embossing is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
~Pink Pirouette and Whisper White are for stamping and punching. Stamp first then punch.
~Punch your small hearts from the Silver Glimmer Paper. I punched 3 per girl, but do as many as you want. 3. Emboss your card front if desired and glue it onto your card base. If you want your card front flat, just use your card base. 4. Stamp, then punch your Groovy Hearts and sentiments. Decide where you want them on the card and glue them on.
I taught a Mother’s Day card class Thursday for the 8-11 year old Achievement Day girls from Church. They each received a packet for a Melon Mambo card and a Perfect Plum card. Here are the samples using the Petal Potpourri Bundle (stamp set and punch). They had a fun time being creative and did well with cleaning their stamps when they were done using them. I did explain they were using “Grown-up Glue” and that they did not need to use very much. We only had two girls that forgot. Hopefully their mothers can open their cards.
