I sketched this design after my son was born and was going to make him a poster or some artwork to hang in his room (I haven’t gotten around to it yet).
With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, I was going through my sketchbooks trying to come up with ideas and inspiration for a postcard. I looked at this design and knew it would be perfect. As far as I know, my Mom and my husband’s Mom do not follow my blog, so the card should still be a lovely surprise in the mail. If they do see this…”Hi Mom’s! You should be getting your postcards by early next week.”
I cut out cardstock stencils (as seen in the picture below) to use as a templates for all elements of the card except for the lettering. I should mention that the typography is called “Just Kidding” by Brittney Murphy Designs and is the only part of the card I didn’t design myself.
I am storing all the stencils away in a Ziploc bag just in case I need them at a later date.
Here are the final cards. I think they are adorable, and hope the Moms like them as well.
