Flowers for Mom Card Using the Painters Tape Technique

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching so now is the time to create those special card for the mom you love.  Create a fun background for this card or any card using the painter’s tape technique.  It’s easy to do and the results are awesome!


Begin by using a paper trimmer to cut a 3 ¼” x 5 ¼” piece of cardstock.  You can use any color of cardstock as long as it is light enough to show ink from an ink pad.  Darker cardstock can be used but you will need to choose an ink color such as white to use in the next step.


Add the ink to the tape by pressing it down onto the ink pad. Place the piece of painters tape (sticky side up) onto an acrylic stamp block.  If you want more than one ink color or a wider inked area use more than one strip of tape or use a wide tape.  Press the block onto the piece of cardstock to create the background.  Lay the piece aside and allow the ink to dry completely.


Now create the card base and add a patterned paper layer.  This card base measures 4” x 6” and the patterned paper (the one shown is from the Precious Memories Collection by Graphic 45) is 3 ½” x 5 ½”.  Round all of the corners using a corner rounder.  You can choose to leave the 2 corners along the fold on the card base unrounded if you like or round those, too.


Die cut an umbrella from cardstock using a die and die cut machine.


Assemble the card and attach the umbrella using a tape runner.


Embellish the umbrella with some flowers to give it a special look for mom.


Personalize the card by stamping “mom” over the painters tape inked area.  You can use a stamp that says mom, mother or use a set of alphabet stamps to spell it out.

Finish the card off by attaching to more flowers around the word “mom” and add a sentiment to the inside of the card.

Mother’s Day isn’t too far away so start getting those cards ready and surprise mom with a special handmade one this year.  Don’t forgot to use the painters tape technique on your other card designs, too.  It’s a great way to create a quick and easy back ground that looks great!

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
