Mother’s Day Card: Tin Ceiling

Happy Tuesday everybody.  I finally got my Mother’s Day cards done over the weekend and wanted to share.  (Sorry mom if you see this and aren’t surprised by your card!!).  I wanted to come up with something with a vintage feel and of course I wanted to use my new toy.    Hope you like the idea!!!

First off here is the list of tools that I used to make the card:

I made 2 of these and they took me roughly 15 minutes.

  • Sizzix
  • Wildflower vines embossing plate
  • Alphabet Plate – Sizzix Bigz XL BLOCK TALK ALPHABET & NUMBERS by TIM HOLTZ ALTERATIONS
  • Silver Metallic Card stock
  • Decorative Paper
  • Reflections blank greeting cards either in White or Ivory (purchased from Michael’s) roughly a 5×7 size folded
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Markers

I cut squares to fit in the plate out of the silver metallic card stock.  You don’t have to be super precise here, you will trim them anyway.

Adhear the 4 squares to the card to make it look like a tin celing

Knowing that I was going to be putting “Mom” on the card I put a center piece in to help make sure that the letter laid nicely

Using the Sizzix I made the word “Mom” from my Block talk plate and fancy purple paper I had

After looking at the card I knew it needed a little something extra so I colored in some of the flowers.

Add a nice note and picture on the inside and done!   I won’t show you the inside, my mom needs some kind of surprise for Mother’s day!!!

Hope everybody has a great rest of their week and a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mommies out there!!!!
