Serendipity Mother's Day Cards!

For Serendipity's first April challenge we have a card sketch. We needed to take the following sketch and make a Mother's Day Card with it. I had a wonderful time playing around with my supplies, Serendipity Stamps, and brand new sewing machine!

Here is the card I created from the sketch. I just love purple and green together, and the white accents really make it pop to me!

Mother's Day Card


  • Mom Large Serendipity Stamp (822D)

  • Dandelion Puff Small Serendipity Stamp (860E)

  • Embossing Ink

  • White Embossing powder

  • heat tool

  • Purple white core cardstock

  • coordinating purple ink

  • sponge

  • green cardstock

  • white cardstock

  • purple and green sheer ribbon

  • dot embossing template

  • sand paper

  • skittles or dew drops

  • glue dots

  • white thread and sewing machine

  • oval template or die


Cut card front from purple cardstock. Embossing dots on cardstock, and sand to bring out the white. Finished card measures 5 1/2” x 7 1/2”. Cut an oval from white cardstock. Stamp the dandelion and mom on the oval with embossing ink, and shake on white embossing powder and heat set. Using sponge, dab purple ink over stamped image to give it a mottled effect. Mat on a green oval and stitch around the edge. Add a green strip to bottom of card and stitch edges. Add two strips vertically and stitch edges of those as well. Cover bottom strip with green ribbon. Tie a bow using purple and green ribbon and attach at the right side of bottom strip. Adhere oval over two side strips. Using glue dots adhere skittles around oval.

Amy, I love these colors together, too. The dew drops around your oval really add some great texture!
