Opinions please!! The idea I had in my head didn't come out the way I had planned. I wrote words of things my mom is (wife, daughter, aunt, cosmetologist, special, etc) and used different ribbons on each tag. I used a circle punch to make the half circle in the pocket.
Would you want to receive something like this if you were a mom? If it's dorky or silly, I can make her another one. I think I'll add ink to the edges of the tag strips and maybe to the pocket.

I would be thrilled to get this. You have a wonderful idea here! The only thing I might do different is to make the tags alternating colors, blue, yellow and white. You can send me this card anytime! I love it! I don't have my Mother anymore but I would like to do this for my daughter! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us. Fantastic!

I think it's adorable...and love it just the way it is. You have to understand that your Mother will see more than just the card...she'll see the love you are conveying to her (as well as feel it too) so I think that you just need to make it totally yours from you! Homemade gifts from my daughter are some of my most prized possesions...they just simply can't be replaced or competed with they are that special.
