Vertical Mom Day Card

This Vertical Mom Day Card looks simple and it is.    Tell mom you love her with this simple card.

You will need:

        • Heavy cardstock for the base
        • Various Cardstock scraps
        • a grommet
        • a grommet tool
        • Pen
        • Glue

Cutting the card

Cut the card base and the cricut will do the writing.  I used a grey/silver pen.  If you want to change what the card says that can easily be done before cutting.  The little pieces of the letters can be cut on one mat.

Once all the pieces are cut out, glue the letters on.  Line the card up with the smallest on top then the next longest and so forth. Punch a hole in the small circle at the top of the card through all three layers.

I used a wonderful tool called The Scraparatus by Karen Foster.  I have the amazon link to get one right here.

It will punch a hole through paper, plastic or leather and the Scraparatus does all the work for you.  

I used it to cut the hole then simply changed heads and set the grommet.  I used it all the time.  It even has die sets that will cut out letters and small shapes.  I have a few but don’t use them much except for holes.  But the most impressive thing, in my opinion is setting grommets of any size.

If you don’t have one use a paper punch and tie a ribbon or put a brad in the hole.

 

And the card is done. Make sure your mom knows you are thinking of her.
