Happy Mothers Day Card Making Instructions:

This Happy Mother's Day Card is very easy to make and is a lovely handmade card to send to your mom this Happy Mother's Day. It's doesn't take much time to make this card. (Note: If you don't have the below mentioned rubber stamps, just use another floral design stamp).

I use water color for this project. The water coloring technique used here is relatively simple. All I did is just putting a color on the card and using clean water on a brush to pull the color over the design. Try it! You will love it.

  • Fold cardstock to make blank card.
  • Ink floral design rubber stamp with black pigment ink and stamp on the top half of white blank card.
  • Ink Happy Mother's Day stamp with same black pigment ink and stamp on the bottom half of the white blank card.
  • Squeeze red and yellow green water colors onto palette.
  • Wet brush and pick up the red color and apply to the flower petals. Just brush onto the inside of the petals.
  • Use a clean brush and wet the brush with clean water.
  • Pull the red color on the petals to the outer edges.
  • Leave some portion white (untouched) for highlight.
  • Paint the rest of the card front with yellow green color.
  • Use the wooden end of the brush to make the dots on the color. Just tap the wooden end on the paint and make dots around the 4 sides of the card close to the edge.
  • Stamp a small flower on scrap white card and color it.
  • Cut out and use double sided tape to attach to the top right of the Happy Mother's Day message.
  • Use a yellow marker to color the centre of the flowers.
  • Leave the card to dry and if needed, put under a heavy book to flatten.

A Mom's Prayer

Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day,
With little time to stop and pray,
For life's been anything but calm
Since You called me to be a Mom.

Running errands, matching socks,
Building dreams with wooden blocks,
Cooking, cleaning, finding shoes
And other stuff that children lose,

Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
Wiping tears and giving hugs,
A stack of last week's mail to read
So where's the quiet time I need?

Yet, when I steal a moment, Lord,
Just at the sink or ironing board,
To ask the blessings of Your grace,
I see then, in my small one's face,

That you have blessed me all the while
And I stoop to kiss that precious smile.
