Pink Die Cut Card
Card-making for Mother's Day with Spellbinders Dies
Your first paragraph ...This die cut card uses one of Spellbinders Dies called the Fancy Tags Three. I especially like the first one on the package picture.
This is a Happy Mother's Day card - simple to make and since I used one of the Garden Girl Collection patterned paper from Bo Bunny which has a dominantly shocking pink colour theme, I'm just following the same colour theme and adding shocking pink ribbon and card-stock.
Just click on image for gallery or expanded view.
Below is how I did it step-by-step. Hope this die cut card will inspire you to use your Spellbinders dies to make quick and easy Mother's Day cards for Mother's Day. This is especially useful when you have to make a whole batch of them for clients or Happy Mothers Day events.
Poem: I Love You, Mom
Mom's smiles can brighten any moment,
Mom's hugs put joy in all our days,
Mom's love will stay with us forever
and touch our lives in precious ways...
The values you've taught,
the care you've given,
and the wonderful love you've shown,
have enriched my life
in more ways than I can count.
I Love you, Mom!

- Follow Spellbinders Die Cutting Instructions for cutting and embossing the die cut.
- Make sure the 'Happy Mother's Day' stamped message is centred on the pink cardstock before you cut it.
- Attach to top of card front with foam double sided tape for a 3D effect.
- Snip a small cut on the card at the folded line at the border pattern just enough for the ribbon to go through.
- Thread shocking pink color ribbon into the slit, fasten with glue or adhesive inside and outside of card and tie at the edge of card.
