Mother’s Day Cut Away Card

This Mother’s Day Cut Away Card is easy to make but hard to design.  Lucky for you all the designing is done for you.  I have done others.  You can see the Christmas and the Father’s Day cards at these links

Tell Mom that you are thinking of her on her special day.  This card can be made in 15 minutes with my download file.  I love making these cards.  And since all the designing is done go ahead and make one.

You will need:

        • Heavy 2 sided cardstock for the base 
        • 2 different color Pens
        • Download File

Paper Selection

The paper for this Mother’s Day cut away card must be two sided for it to look good.  It can either be patterned or solid. I used a paper that was floral on one side and patterned on the other.  This is the best idea for this type of card.  It allows the words to stand out.  If the patterns are too busy the words get lost in the pattern.

Cutting the Card

I did all the design work so this card is simple to cut.  Make sure the Cricut cuts all the way through the paper.  You may need to cut again depending on your paper.  To do that just press the C on your machine before unloading the paper.  This is not a card that you want to be prying the pieces out of.

Cut the card out and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used two different fonts and two colored pens on this project to make the word SPECIAL stand out.  The main text is done with a black pen and the font Aiushtya and you can get it at Dafont. 

The SPECIAL is written in blue glitter pen and in the font Akasia and you can get it at FreeFonts.com

Assembly

First carefully re-crease the card.  The folds are very close to the writing so take your time doing this step.

Once all the pieces are cut out, fold the card in a Z shape so that all the writing faces the right way.  

And you finished your Mother’s Day Cut Away Card.  It fits in an A2 envelope for mailing.
