Easy to Make with Cricut Card Idea- Mother's Day

Updated on August 25, 2011

Mother's Day is a wonderful opportunity to give our mother's or a special mom in our lives a meaningful card.  As a youngster I remember my mother being thrilled with a handmade Mother's Day card.  Now that I am an adult with a fantastic creation called the Cricut Personal Cutting Machine, I am able to create a Mother's Day card easily that looks wonderful.

For this card I used the basic Cricut Cartridge called Heritage.  This cartridge boasts of a great number of cutouts remembering yesteryear including old fashioned kitchen and household items, classic buildings, and best of all great cameos for whatever project you can think of.

Specifics

  • Cricut Cartridge: Heritage
  • Card Size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I used a black cardstock for this card to offset the cameos used.
  • Heavy weight cardstock
  • Blade Depth: #2
  • Pressure: High
  • Speed: Medium

I feature this in every hub because it is so important. For this project i used the "poker" tool so many times because of the small cuts. It features necessary tools for successful cutouts as well as extra paper, sticky mats, and a paper cutting device.
