Step 1 Cut an 8½"x5½" strip from a print in the Collage Art Stack™. Score and fold this in half to create a 4¼"x5½" card. Lay this in front of you with the fold on the left side.
Step 2 Cut a 4¾"x3¾" square from a coordinating pink print in the stack. Mount this onto the solid pink cardstock sheet and cut it out, leaving a thin border on all sides. Adhere this grouping to the center of your card.
Step 3 Cut out a quote from the stack that is approximately 3¾" wide. Mat this onto the black cardstock sheet and cut out, leaving a ¼" border on all sides of the quote. Adhere this to the front of the card.
Step 4 Cut out the word “Mom” using your die cut shapes and the black cardstock (or use alphabet stickers here instead). Adhere them just above the quote, slightly off center as shown.
Step 5 Take the raffia and wrap it around the front flap of the card, slightly to the right of the fold. Tie it in the bow in the front and trim excess length.
Step 6 Write your personalized message inside and deliver to the lucky recipient.
