We got some foil on our last order and they made such fun and easy Mothers Day cards. If you have forgotten about Mothers Day, first off shame on you, but here is an idea for some last minute ideas for a card. We used Spellbinders #2 foil packs which have 5 different color choices that really work with the Mothers Day feel but you can get them in all sorts of colors and even natural metal colors so check them out. Just start with a background pattern or color and fold your card. Next use some kind of texture folder, we used Spellbinders Framed Lables 18 and Crafts-Two’s Tulip Window. With the blue one we just used it straight as it came out of the folder but on the pink one we lightly sanded the surface which took off the paint on the texture which emphasizes the pattern. One little helpful hint on these just throw a sheet of wax paper between the foil and the folder so it comes out really slick. Add a few stamps on the front and add the bling and you are ready to give to the mothers in your life.
Well I hope all you mothers have a happy Mothers Day and again I hope this helps all you procrastinators (me included) wish the mothers in your life a happy day.
