All moms agree that the best Mother’s Day presents are handmade. Make your mom a special Mother’s Day card that spells M-O-M in polka dots.
I used this new polka dot stencil from Amy Anderson at Mod Podge Rocks that she sent me to try out. And you can win a stencil for yourself! Keep reading for a giveaway.
I love how this Mother’s Day gift idea celebrates Mom in a simple and clever way. It uses on-trend color of the year Radiant Orchid paper and dark egglplant colors. And who doesn’t love polka dots? Let’s get to it.
Supplies for making a DIY Mother’s Day Card using a Polka Dot Stencil (with images and links from affiliates):
- Mod Podge Rocks Polka Dot Adhesive Stencil
- Craft paint
- Cardstock paper
- Painter’s tape
- Scissors or an X-ACTO knife, ruler and self-healing cutting mat
- Wax paper and baking sheet
How to make a DIY Mother’s Day Card using a Polka Dot Stencil:
Using painter’s tape, tape off the word MOM. I made my M’s about 4 polka dot circles tall. It’s best to start in the center with the O and then work left and right.
Cut a piece of cardstock to fit your envelope to be your card. Check out my tips on how to score and fold paper cards.
Peel the stencil off of the backer sheet very carefully from the backer and all surfaces so you don’t tear it. Smooth thoroughly onto the surface. Be sure to save the backing for later. Learn more about working with adhesive stencils.
