When I was little I started Lisa Ely Cards Co. and loved making cards for family and friends for every occasion. Mother's Day was one of my favorites because you could be so creative artistically. Guess what? I still do love making cards. Of course, I now head out to the garden with my kids to make them, and for Mother’s Day this year we’re creating cards with flower shadow drawings!
They’re easy to make and are a great way to use flowers in the garden while they’re still growing.
All you do is find a flower and trace it’s shadow onto a piece of paper. Color in the flower with chalk or crayons and then cut it out.
You can make a flower vase too! Glue the bottom of a construction paper vase onto another piece of paper. Then fill the vase up with the flowers and you have a great homemade flower card for someone special!
Of course, while you’re in the garden working with the shadow flowers be sure to investigate why a shadow is even there! What makes a shadow? If you have time go out at various times in the day and see how the shadow has changed.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
