Mother Overlay Card
- Trim each card to 3 3/4” x 6 1/2”. Open the cards and
turn one over with the fold at the center. Place the left panel of the
second card beneath the right panel of the first card and glue the overlapping
panels together. You should now have 3 panels that are each 3 3/4”
wide. Re-fold so the card is accordion-folded.
- Cover the first and third panels with lavender tapestry paper, and
the center panel with lavender words paper. Cut two 3 3/4” x 1
1/2” pieces of lavender crinkled paper and glue one across the
first and third panels about 1 1/4” from the bottom of the card.
Glue ribbon across the center of the crinkled paper and center panel
- Glue the square paper art to the lower portion of the center panel,
centered over the ribbon. Cover a slide mount with lavender mesh paper
and glue over the paper art as shown.
- Open the card out flat. Lay the clear overlay over the card and mark
the edges of the card folds at the edges of the overlay. Place the overlay
on your cutting mat. Use the back of your knife to carefully score folds
in your overlay duplicating the card folds, but do not cut through.
Fold the overlay and place over the card. Attach corners with silver
brads, then trim edges even with the card edges.
- Cut out tags and add word fragments to them. Glue tags to the front panel
of the card, on to the overlay. Add silver heart clip to tags and tie with
A Tip From Susan:
Here I created a unique stand-up card for a mother, perfect for Mother’s
Day. I glued two cards together to create a 3-paneled card and covered
each panel with patterned paper, followed by a clear decorative Overlay.
It’s a unique handmade card that’s great for Mom to put on
