Mum's the Word

Mother's Day is coming up in 3 weeks, so I thought I would share some of my favorite card ideas while you still have time to send them. A handmade card is a great way to tell the mothers in your life you love and appreciate them. If you lack confidence in your card making skills, try one of these handmade-by-someone-else options from Etsy.

Classic Florals
Nothing is more classic than a floral mother's day card. These letterpress designs have an embossed presence that gives them a special weight.

Pastel Banners
Keep it sweet and simple with these text-based screenprinted cards.

Funny Cards
If the mother in your life has a good sense of humor, these cards might tickle her fancy. I'm guilty of sending the second card to a friend after she became a new mother. Technically, it's not a mother's day card, but I like it so I'm sharing it anyway.

The best thing about these blank cards is they can be framed and turned into a little piece of artwork after the card is given. Also, you get to write a more personalized message.
