Mother's Day Cards For Mothers Who Have Passed Away

I made a Mother's Day card for my late Mother and it is my prayer that she will see this from Heaven.  I hope she is pleased with my efforts.  I just couldn't see not doing anything this year because she wasn't here with me in the physical world.  If you have a mother who is gone on, join me in cherishing your mother's memory with a handmade card.  

Happy Crafting to you And 

To all the Mothers worldwide

God bless all of you, Chan

This card was made from Butterfly Garden Paper from DCWV.  It's a beautiful stack perfect for Mother's day Cards.

The Flower was made from Brenda Walton Madeline Mat Pad put out by K&C Company

I used white flat lace on the front of the card to add some texture. 
I used the sizzix swirl flower die and the retro flower punch to make the large rose in the middle.  I added a little tag with a little flower so that the rose could have a little charm hanging from it. To see, how I made this rose, click on the video below entitled "How to Make a Rose"

I love cardboard cards because they are very sturdy and durable.  I also like the ridged and rough edges.  It makes good contrast for the soft flowers and lace.

This is the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch. 

My mother taught me many valuable things in life. And I cherish all the lessons she taught me.

Other Bible Verses about Mothers

Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching.  They will be a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.   - Proverbs 1:8-9

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.  When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, "Dear woman, here is your son,"  and to the disciple, "Here is your mother." From that time on, this disciple took her into his home. - John 19:25-27

Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.  Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding.  The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him.  - Proverbs 23:22-24

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.  "Honor your father and mother"--which is the first commandment with a promise--  "that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth." - Ephesians 6:1-3

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.  She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.  She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.  Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:  "Many women do noble things, but a virtuous woman (Godly Mother) surpasses them all."  Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a Godly woman and Mother who fears the LORD is to be praised.  - Proverbs 31:25-30 

Happy Mother's Day to all Mother's Living and Deceased.  God bless you call!

Hi there. I was feeling bad about Mother's day also. But I feel like mom can still see me. I'm sure your mom can still see you also. She will know you honored her on mothers day. God bless, Chan
