 Last summer I hosted an Elmer’s Craft Camp, and I loved it so much that when they contacted me again, I quickly jumped on board. When I received their package in the mail this time, I was so excited to go through the products and find not only tried and true favorites, but some new items as well.

Here’s a look at what I received…

 The X-ACTO scissors?  They have been my favorite since I used them for the first time last year, and I was thrilled to see another pair.  After taking a peek at everything inside the tote, I knew just what I wanted to make…a Mother’s Day card using the bi-fold foam board as the base. My kids were able to help with this project, which was one of the best things about it. 

I used Elmer’s Dot Runner to adhere a piece of scrapbook paper that I cut to size to the foam board. I printed out my text onto Bazzill cardstock, distressed the edges, and matted it onto a coordinating piece of scrapbook paper. 

I asked each child to tell me about some of their favorite memories with my mom, then I typed them, and printed them out onto cardstock.  I distressed all the edges before adhering it to the foam board. I made the kids’ names using the same process as my front cover.

I wanted the kids to leave their own mark on the card, and the paint pens were the perfect thing.  They signed their names and drew a couple of pictures that they wanted to, and we were set!  (Can you tell my girls like to be the same?  It’s all the matching clothes that have done it, lol.)

I just love this over-sized card, and I hope my mom does too!
