Mother's Day is this month, and that means different things for all of us! Some of us will be gifting, some of us will be getting, and some of us will be doing a little bit of both. If you've made a card for five years running, why not change it up? Little projects like this are a perfect way to try out a new skill, take it easy and make something uncomplicated, and continue to grow no matter what you do. Plus, whoever will be receiving your handmade gift is sure to treasure it!
For Our Embroiderers
If you're not ready to relinquish you hold on a card-giving tradition, then this embroidered card from How About Orange is the perfect step up for a hangable, frameable, customizable project for the mother in your life to keep and cherish. Since it almost doubles as a wall decoration, it's much sturdier, much more personable, and much prettier than any store-bought card you could get.
The best feature about this card is that you might find yourself liking the free downloadable pattern, but it's a wonderful starting point for other patterns and designs you want to try. As long as you have the right paper, anything is possible!

Get those makeup brushes out of a bag and into the cutest storage roll this May.
