Peakles has been under the weather with teething and I have found her ability to focus on a task has been reduced. My first idea for Mother’s Day cards had to be scrapped due to Peakles feeling frustrated and sore from her gums. So I found some bits and pieces around the home to create cards for both Grandmothers.
Red flower embellishments that I had picked up in the ‘bargain bin’ of my local craft store, a couple of blank ivory coloured cards from when I made my own wedding invitations and some glitter paint.
What we did:
Peakles added dots of gold glitter paint to the front of the cards in a random pattern.
Peakles then decided which embellishments to use as there were large and small red flowers.
She carried on adding dots and flowers until she was happy with her cards. Then Peakles left them to dry.
As you can see they are quite striking and work well with our jewelled gifts and butterfly gift boxes. We both think the Grandmothers will be delighted with their unique Peakle Pie card designs and it was also a nice, easy craft for Peakles to do when she wasn’t feeling very well.
