The Kraft Journal - Mother's Day

It's all about Mother's Day this week at The Kraft Journal!

I  chose to make a non-traditional Mother's Day card for this week's challenge. Somehow the gushy cards just don't seem to fit the relationship I have with my Mother. I typically stick to more of a Thinking of You theme when I am creating or purchasing a card for her on Mother's Day. I started with a Kraft Blank Note Card and matching envelope for the base. It is decorated with stripes made from Decorative Paper Tape and a layered flower made from the same paper tape. (You can see my tutorial on how that flower was made). Butterflies were stamped and then punched out of Lunch Bag Kraft Text Paper and the body was wrapped in Brown Kraft Baker's Twine. I love the extra added touch of stampin on the envelope to match the card!

Head on over to The Kraft Journal and take a look at what the other amazing designers on this team have created with Mother's Day in mind.


  1. I love how you used the decorative tape on this card Kristina and the stamped/die cut butterflies are so sweet too! xoxox

  2. I love your non-traditional Mother's Day look, Kristina! That decorative tape flower is fabulous, and I love the strips of tape, too. Really fun butterflies, as well. I like the baker's twine wrapped bodies. :)

  3. You have been coming up with some of the neatest ways to use those KO products K! Love the twine wrapped butterflies. :-) Beautiful card!


I have to admit...I LOVE comments!! Thank you so much for stopping by my little piece of the world. Have a great day!
