hand-print hearts mother’s day card

A quick card for Mother’s Day, would also make a lovely birthday card. We made two cards for the kids to give to Grandma and Nana. Got the idea from Oliver’s card which he made for me at school. The kids each made two hearts by making angled hand-prints, when the paint was dry I cut out the heart shapes and we mounted them onto the cards using foam adhesive pads to give a slight 3d effect. We used purple and green co-ordinated paint and card colours.

Spent a lovely sunny afternoon at Dartington Cider Press Centre, a favourite place to visit here in South Devon, with craft shops, a fantastic toy shop, Cranks restaurant, and we also caught the fantastic juggling show just before we left.

Above right, my Mother’s Day offerings, a teapot card and a keyring Cyan made at pre-school; and two cards from Oli, the hand-print heart and another which he made before I got up, with, yes, more honking ducks!
