How to Make Greeting Cards for Mother’s Day at Home
First, you will need to cut your pieces with your Cricut machine. Click here to access the file and resize if needed before cutting. The machine will ask for your pen to draw on the inside lettering before cutting the card. You will also need a scoring wheel or stylus and the machine will ask for those as well.
Fold the card along the score line.
Then place your letters on the card without adhesive to get an idea as to how much room you will have in the center.
Paint yellow paint on the child’s hand with a paintbrush and apply to the center of the card as shown. Allow to dry completely.
Then use adhesive to add on the letters on both sides.
Write the child’s name and date on the inside of the card. You can have them do this if they are old enough.
Now that you have learned how to make a Mother’s Day card, did you know just how simple it could be?
Mom will love that cute handprint on the front.
As well as the inside that lets her know just how you feel!
