Dear Mom...

Lean in real close, friends. We've got to talk. Did you realize next Sunday is Mother's Day? Have you started working on a card for your Mom yet?

Never fear because we've got your back. We've got some Mother's Day card inspiration from Technique Tuesday Creative Team member Tobi Crawford.

Technique-Tuesday-Greatest-Mom-World-Tobi-Crawford-LargeTalk about fun card for Mom! 

Tobi colored in the globe from the Greatest Decision stamp set with markers. The sentiment was created by pairing together words from Greatest Decision with letters from the Alphabet License Plate stamp set.

And how about those hearts? You can do the same thing with Heart Strings dies. Cut a string of hearts and simply snip off just what you need. 

Looking for even more inspiration? Don't miss this card and this card from Jill Dewey Hawkins! Also check out the Home and Family gallery on the Technique Tuesday website. You'll find even more great ideas there.

A Card for Baby from Tobi

Here's a fun idea for making your next card or scrapbook page a bit more interesting: Make your own patterned paper with the Home Town Lowercase dies! Simply cut a panel of cardstock and then die-cut the letters into it!

Bundle of Joy handmade card by Tobi Crawford for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com

Tobi Crawford recently created this fun baby card using that exact technique. Want to try it yourself but want the die-cuts to really stand out? Sponge some ink on your panel. 

Tobi created the sentiment for her card with the Bundle of Joy stamp set. She used the stamp set to create those baby-themed accessories to decorate her card with. While she fussy cut them with scissors, you may want to consider using the coordinating Bundle of Joy steel dies (or digital cut files) with the stamp set. This will help save you time!

Do you struggle with making cards for your favorite guys?
