Mothers day is fast approaching which means spoiling the mother figure in your life. Nothing shows her you care more than a handmade card, which is where this little lady comes in!
This card is easy peasy to make, will take 5 minutes, and chances are you’ve already got all of the components hiding in your craft box! So, let get crafting!
You will need..
-A blank card and envelope
-Buttons (at least one large)
-Mini wired flower decoration
-German pins (normally used for flower arranging)
Take the decorative card and cut out a large triangle to make the lady’s dress
Take two of the German pins and bend one of them almost straight to make the arms
Using the glue gun, stick the bent German pin about a third of the way down the card, slightly to the left. Take the unbent pin and stick further down the card, ensuring it stays central to the lady’s arms
Stick the dress directly onto the arms and legs, gluing directly onto the raised parts of the pin. This will mean the dress is raised, giving 3D effect
Now stick a large button on to the top point of the dress, making sure the two holes are horizontal to resemble eyes
Take the flowers and trim the stalks so it is in proportion with the lady
Stick the bouquet onto the lady’s right hand
Finally, add some buttons to the front of the envelope and write your message inside!
