Mother’s Day will be here before you know it and I still need to make cards. I keep meaning to run to the craft store for a few more rubber stamps – because I don’t have one that inspires me to make a Mother’s Day card. As I was searching through my rubber stamp tub, I realized that I have quite a few rubber stamps that I’ve purchased and only used once. There are even some that I’ve purchased and never used at all. I was inspired by the craft book, Stamp It! by Jenny Doh to be more creative in using handmade stamps instead of buying new ones.
How To Make A Mother’s Day Card With Celery (Really!)
- Blank note card and matching envelope
- Three different colors of acrylic paint – pink, yellow, green
- Paper plate or paint palette
- Bunch of celery
- Put a small circle of paint for each color on the paper plate or paint palette
- Peel off one outer stalk of celery
- Leave the other stalks together
- With a very sharp knife, cut off the leaves at the end of the stalk
- Cut the one single stalk of celery into two pieces.
- Dip the end of the bunch of celery into the pink paint to make one large flower.
- Using one half of the single stalk, dip it into the green and use it to make two sets of leaves as shown.
- Using the other half of the single stalk, dip it into the yellow and use it to make a center to the flower.
- Let the card dry and you are all set. You can write Happy Mother’s Day on the inside if you like or just write Mom a note.
