How to Create a Personal Touch with Your Mother's Day Cards1
Mother’s Day is almost upon us, with March 11th quickly approaching! Now’s the time to start crafting the perfect card to give to your mother (or stepmother, or grandmother…) so that you can create a personal touch that will make her eyes light up with joy.
Take a look at our tips on how you can add sentimental value to your Mother’s Day card and how you can add your very own unique touch, just like with sayings, hearts or flowers!
Adding a picture to your card is a great way to add a personal – and unique – touch to it, as no one else will have the same card! Take a family picture and add it to the card, and your mother will cherish it forever as a precious memento; especially when combined with heartfelt words.
Nothing says ‘personal touch’ more than a beautifully crafted message written from the heart. A sentimental note can be anything, from a touching message where you tell your mother just how much she means to you to a gorgeous poem that will showcase your love for her.
A ‘Treat Yourself’ Card
If you want to show your mother just how much you appreciate everything she’s done for you, why not create a card that works as a gift? Maybe you add a day in the spa or a voucher for a wine-tasting session to the card; no matter what you choose as a present, we’re confident your mum will absolutely adore the effort and love you put into it. And the best thing is that she gets a day of relaxation and peace!
By creating intricate patterns through a ‘papercut panel effect’, you can achieve beautiful designs, as shown on this fabulous card. Your mum will absolutely love it, especially when she sees just how much you poured your heart into it.
Let Your Kids Do It Too
While your kids are more than likely going to give you a card, why not involve them in making a card for your mother as well? You can all add your very own touch (some glitter, finger painting, drawings, etc.) and give a joint card that your mum, their grandmother, will surely appreciate. After all, it’s a handmade card created with love by the most important people in her life.
We’re positive not many mothers will receive an origami card this Mothering Sunday! You can create a stunning heart, a flower, or any other ornament you know your mum will love, and gift it to her with your beautiful message.
Create a Pattern with Washi Tape
You can get a simple card and decorate it with washi tape for a unique look. Create lovely patterns for a beautifully-made card and add a message that is sure to make your mother’s heart melt!
A Pop-Up Card
Be it a flower, the words ‘mum’ or ‘love’, a heart, etc., a pop-up card will always stand out for all the right reasons. This creative and special way to say ‘I Love You’ to your mother will, no doubt, have a great emotional impact that will make her tear up a little. You don’t need anything complicated for this, just card and creativity!
3D Effect Card
Another fantastic way to create a personal card is to make your own 3D effect. You can create several layers of card in the shape you desire (again, flowers always go down a treat!) and craft truly stunning cards with this effect! Don’t’ believe us? Just take a look at this card.
Or what about this one with beautiful 3D flowers and a butterfly? Creative, unique, personal!
