Silhouette Cameo Mother’s Day Card

Here’s another card that I made using my Silhouette Cameo for my Mother-in-Law. I wanted to make sure it was in the mail on Sunday evening so it was a Saturday night project.

To create the layout, I searched through my Pinterest card inspiration board and came across this pin that I really liked.

I started with a package of garden-themed scrapbook paper that I picked up from HomeSense and built the card around that.

The stripes are Washi tape, the daffodil and tag are stamped with Tim Holtz’ Distress Ink and I used Baker’s Twine as an embellishment!

The sentiment was sketched using my Silhouette sketch pens in the font Lavanderia.

Sketch pens make it so easy to customize your card sentiment!

I hope Mr. Mechanic’s Mom likes her card!

  1. How pretty!! I love the colors :) and that you used the sketch pens! I havent been gotten that far yet.. soon.

  2. Love these cards Claire - you are very talented! I must be the only human being on earth that hasn't used Washi tape, have to go out and get some!! Have a great week! Heather :)

  3. Both cards are gorgeous.You've inspired me with some new techniques.I've never used Washi tape and it looks so pretty.

  4. The card is pretty awesome. Now I will have to learn about these pens.
    I really like your choice of font also that you used. How do you use these pens? Can you select any of the fonts that I currently have on the computer?

    I just purchased the Lavanderia font nice choice.

  5. Claire, it's perfect! Your Mother in law will LOVE IT! Hope you're having a super day! SMiles, Jill
