A Ladies Diary DCE Mother’s Day Card

By Tanya Scrap


“Hello dear G45ers! 

I am happy to share with you my Seasonal project this month featuring the STUNNING A Ladies Diary – Deluxe Collector’s Edition. This collection is my all-time favorite Graphic 45 collection and perfect for making a card for that special occasion. I have created a Mother’s Day Card with lots of die-cuts and fussy-cut elements which I cut from the pattern papers.


Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you may use to recreate such a project:


G45 Supplies Used:

A Ladies Diary—Deluxe Collector's Edition

A Ladies Diary – Deluxe Collector’s Edition

Matte Pearl Gems

Large Tag, ATC Tag and Flower Die

Imagine Collection Clear Acrylic Stamp


Other Supplies Used:

Ivory Cardboard

Various Cutting Dies

Ribbon and Lace

Chipboard Embellishments

Embossing Powder



Embossing Folder 



Fussy-cut and die-cut some elements from the pattern sheets in the collection. Not shown in picture: cut an extra circle shape from the ivory cardboard and emboss with an embossing folder. 



Die-cut some leaves for decoration using the G45 cutting die.


Cut a card from ivory cardboard measuring 21 cm x 10.5 cm. Die-cut another piece (optional: use a stitched frame die) from the same ivory cardboard and mat the card. 


Stamp the hot air balloon image from the Imagine collection stamp set onto the pattern paper and fussy-cut.

Tip: Use off-cut or leftover pattern paper to stamp the image on.


Heat emboss the chipboard embellishments with embossing powder. Add some G45 matte pearl gems to the dots on the swirls.


Mat the sticker word ‘Timeless’ from the sticker sheet onto the ivory colour cardboard. 

Tuck in some of the fussy-cut and stamped leaves behind and between the petals of the flowers.


Add some ribbon and string behind the flowers.


Add a chipboard embellishment from the collection on the side of the card.


Thanks for stopping by!
