mday photo card

We have some unique cards for Mother’s Day, but if you’re looking for a D.I.Y. that’s uniquely personal, here’s a quick and easy photo card tutorial.




  • Start with a photo of you and mom that will fit on the front of a card.
  • Measure your photo size, then allow for a border on each side. With your new measurement, cut a solid paper background. (For instance, a 2″ x 3″ photo with a 1/2″ border on each side would need a 3″ x 4″ background.) Paste the photo on the paper with a glue stick.
  • Cut a piece of fine paper or wrapping paper to size for your chosen card, leaving an approximate 1/4″ – 1/2″ border on the front of the card. Paste into place with a glue stick.
  • Adhere the photo and solid paper in the center of the card that is now covered with fine paper.
  • Punch out the front card using the Real Estate Paper Punch.
  • Stamp onto the punched out card and emboss with the embossing heat tool.
  • Adhere punched card to front of greeting card using foam squares.
