Of all the Valentine Cards we have been creating, the Madonna and Child Valentines that Rose and I made, inspired by an image a friend of mine pinned, are my favorite! ❤
These would also be perfect for Mother's Day and Christmas, don't you think?
Supplies: (This post contains affiliate links. )
Step One: Cut out images of Our Lady and Baby Jesus and glue to the center of doily.
Step Two: Fold in the sides of the doily and lace a piece of the crochet thread through the holes.
Step Three: Tie and attach a medal.
Option: On some of the cards we outlined the image with Silver Glitter Dimensional Fabric Paint.
After they dried overnight we then finished assembling the rest of the cards.
We also made some with color images, which I had softened using photo editing software to create a more antique look. Rose loved attaching the medals to all twenty of her cards!
I also made some tags for Rose to glue on the back and sign, with three different quotes:
Love our Lady, and she will obtain abundant grace to help you conquer in your daily struggle.
~ St. Josemaria Escriva
Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.
~ St. Maximilian Kolbe
What a joy to remember that she is our Mother! Since she loves us and knows our weakness, what have we to fear?
~ St. Therese of Lisieux
