Absolute Best Mom

Hi friends! Happy Saturday! Please welcome back special guest designer, Kelly Rasmussen to our blog! Read on for more information on this lovely card design for Mom and enjoy!

Mother's Day Card Absolute Best MomToday I’ve created a Mother’s Day card using some Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp goodies. My design was inspired by a card I created last month on the Hero Arts Blog that you can find HERE

I started out by die-cutting the heart opening from a 4.25 inch square piece of woodgrain cardstock. Then I created a watercolor background using Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks. I adhered the watercolor panel to a Fog Gray card base, followed by the heart window.

I adhered these letters to the watercolor panel and then finished stamping my sentiment using the Simon Says Stamp Mom and Dad Icons set.

These are Hero Arts Blush Ombre Sequins, which come in a pack that includes a variety of sizes and colors. The arrangement of the sequins gives the illusion of a shaker card, but they are all firmly adhered in place using Mini Glue Dots.

I’m thinking this design would work great for a Father’s Day card as well! You could change up the color scheme and switch out the heart for a circle.


Thanks for reading today, and to Kelly for being our guest!

  1. This is very sweet. I’m going to keep this idea for Anniversaries and Valentines Day too. TFS!

  2. I’ve been buying from you for a couple of years or longer and didn’t even think to look for a blog until today! As you can imagine, I’ve subscribed for email alerts. The card here is gorgeous. One day I hope to be as talented at making shaker cards. So far, I seem to make only shaker messes.?
