'Photo' Mother's Day Cards for Grandma's

Hi folks! Here's the photo card that I made for Mum & MIL. It was so lovely to see their faces light up when they saw them.

I used a piece of Co-ordinations blue cardstock, added the swirl texture with a Fiskars Texture plate and lightly sanded all over. My Crop-a-dile shaped corner chomper (phew that's a mouthful) chomped the corners of my photo and I added some self adhesive pearls once I had layered the photo onto some white card which I had edged with blue ink. I used scraps of ribbon on the side if the card. I adhered the photo panel with foam tape to add dimension.


I cut the sweet little dragonflies from some scraps of patterned paper that I found lurking in my stash. I added some glamour dust to the body and wings and some curled wire for the antennae. I shaped the dragonflies with my fingers before sticking in place with dimensional glue gel.

I cut the letters from white funky foam with my Go-Kreate 'Lingfield' alphabet die plate. The 'Grandma' card was for Adrian's Mum and 'Abuela' (which also means Grandma) for my Mum.
Thanks so much for looking and for your lovely comments.
Ciao for now!

I love this Sandra. How special it would be to receive one of these cards. My grandbabies are all grown now and have babies of their own, so I'll just dream of the days that were and wait for the ggbabies to get big enough to craft. Your Mum and FMIL will love these as would any gma.
Thanks for sharing! "Hugs" Granny
