Lily Mother's Day Handmade Card

Lily Mother's Day Card

Hi there! It’s Andrea back with you, and today I’m sharing a Mother’s Day card inspired by my amazing mother-in-law. She grows the most beautiful and varied day lilies, and I couldn’t resist creating these paper ones for her.

Blog Supplies:

  • Cardstock Warehouse Paper
    • Sirio Color Lime 80lb
    • Sirio Color Celeste 80lb
    • Sirio Color Gialloro 80 lb
    • Woodstock Giallo 83 lb
    • Woodstock Rosa 83 lb
    • Colorplan Bright White 100lb
  • The Greetery BotaniCuts: Lily
  • Whimsy Stamps Alphabet Dies (retired)

I began by die cutting my floral elements from several papers. For the pink lilies, I used Rosa and added shading with Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress Oxides. I die cut the yellow bloom from Giallo and inked it with Mustard Seed. I cut the orange flower from Gialloro and blended it with Ripe Persimmon. I assembled each lily with liquid adhesive.

I die cut each of the buds from the same cardstock as their larger counterpart and used the same ink colors as mentioned above. I also added Mowed Lawn to the buds’ stems.

I cut the leaves from Lime cardstock and blended each with Mowed Lawn.

I created an A2 cardbase from Bright White cardstock and blended the front with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. I flicked water across the card and blotted it with a paper towel. I arranged my floral elements onto the card, adhering them with a combination of liquid adhesive and foam squares. For more interest I splattered the card with white paint and shimmer spray.

For my sentiment I die cut the word “mom” once from Celeste and twice from Bright White paper. I layered the white letters and offset the blue ones before adhering them to my card with bits of foam. For a little more sparkle, I scattered blue jewels around the card.
