Moms are the ultimate superheroes! In this tutorial, Lieschen Harshbarger makes a fun Mother's Day card inspired by superhero comic books using the Simon Hurley create. SuperMom! stamp set and Dye Ink pads.

 

Instructions

Hello crafty friends! Mother’s Day is around the corner, so I’ve begun to make some lovely cards for the moms in my life. For today’s card I used Simon Hurley’s Supermom! stamp set. This is such a fun set, and my inspiration for this card came from my husband who grew up reading superhero comic books. I hope this tutorial gives you some inspiration to do something fun and creative!

Step 1: Create a slimline card base out of Stark White Cardstock. Trim the card stock at 7 x 8 ½ and score it at 3 ½. Next, trim another piece measuring 3 ¼ x 8 ¼. This will be used for the front panel of the card.
