Beautiful Mother’s Day Wishes Easel Card with RRR and Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  I’m popping in today with a beautiful Mother’s Day Wishes  easel card that you can make in under an hour.  Nothing says “I love you” like a handmade card, especially when it is topped with beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Beautiful Mother's Day Wishes  Easel Card Cafe Parisian by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Graphic 45 Photo 2I put this sweet 4.25″ square easel card together with bits and pieces that were left over from another project.  The focal image from G45 A Place in Time is a near perfect color match for the background papers from G45 Cafe Parisian.

I die cut a Cheery Lynn doily from Ivory cardstock to help break up the patterned layers.

After building my easel card base, I fussy cut the vintage ladies from the focal image.  Then I backed them with waste chipboard and layered them over the image background.  This created wonderful depth and dimension with very little fuss.

The “stopper” is easy to make.  First, cut a panel of the blue dot paper from Place in Time.  Mat it on a slightly smaller piece of chipboard.  Wrap with Wild Rose Swiss Dots Grograin Ribbon and glue to the card base.  Then use your Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to tie a double loop bow and hot glue it in place.    Add a string bow tied with Ivory Natural Burlap and glue to the center of the bow. Top with a button,

Tie a second bow with Burlap String and glue to the left hand corner of the image.  Add flowers. Then glue 3 little buttons down the side of the card.

It takes under an hour to make Mom a keepsake card that she’ll cherish for years to come. And, you used up some paper scraps in the process.  Win/win!

I hope you found some tips and tricks in this beautiful Mother’s Day Wishes Easel card that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

    Wow, Kathy, so hard to believe you made this beautiful Mother’s Day card in less than an hour! My hat’s off to you! I would love to make an easel card; I’m so inspired by yours! Great way to use up those scraps, but it hardly looks like scraps at all. Very clever to use the plain ivory doily in to buffer the layers of gorgeous printed papers! You make the best cards, and I’m sure that this was hard for you to make in spite of it not taking much time. Sending hugs!

    This is such a lovely card for a Mom. I’m thinking that it could also work with something from the portrait of a lady collection. Thanks for sharing it.
