I’m such a huge procrastinator, so usually I’m digging through the craft supplies looking for what’s available to spontaneously come up with some brilliant card idea… for any occasion. Well this year, for Mother’s Day I am prepared! But only because I wanted to make sure you weren’t scrounging in your craft stash for your mom. MY mom is going to thank you!

Make them Now: Click any of these project links and you’ll be taken directly to the Cricut Design Space to make the project – easy peazy!

Each card will take you about 30 minutes. Besides your Cricut machine, you are going to need card stock and adhesive. Each project has it’s own tutorial included on the Make it Now page on the Cricut website, so I’m not going to give detailed instructions here. I will say, the cutting files for each can be used for a variety of occasions, so you can grab them now for Mom projects and use them later for something else super fun.

Let’s get creative, here are some card ideas for you to create and give to Mom this Mother’s Day.

You can used recycled materials to make Mom a card she can appreciate even more. Repurpose cardboard into a pretty little card that says exactly how much you love her.

Add some Spring color to Mom’s day with cards that show case the bright, beautiful colors she loves. If pink isn’t her thing, you can use any color of cardstock you’d like. You can even try a patterned paper you have in your scrapbooking stash. I love this flower lace, cut in plain white for an elegant contrast to the background color or cut the lace from a pretty paper you know Mom will love.

There’s even a gift tag that you can use to coordinate with the cards you make. I love personalized tags, they’re fun and easy to create. Plus you can color coordinate with your packing and gift wrap – bonus!

I really do love orange, but I know not everyone does. However, add a little pink and blue and you all of the sudden have a summer party at your door! When you make your own Mother’s Day cards, you have the opportunity to coordinate with all your gift giving. Your gift wrap and gift tags can match the color scheme of the cards… use the same materials and you’ll have yourself a fabulous gift set Mom will adore!

To make any of these projects, click on the coordinating link below. You’ll then be taken to the Cricut Design Space and you can simply choose to “Customize”.

Don’t have a Cricut?

If you don’t have a Cricut machine or access to Design space, first I say – GO GET ONE!

If you don’t have a Cricut machine yet, get yourself one to play with over the summer. In the meantime, I have a printable you can purchase that you can use to make both the Mom I Love You and the Flower Lace cards. You’ll be purchasing just the front card art, so you’ll need to print it on your own cardstock or print and adhere to your own card. The printable art is designed at 4″x6″.

I really think you should get yourself a Cricut – I am loving mine and I’m positive the more I talk about it, the more you’re going to wish you could make these projects with me. I don’t want to be pushy.. so there you have it, that’s my pitch. Get a Cricut.

Back to Mom – what are you giving your Mom? I think a big bowl of Mac n Cheese would make me super happy. I’m pretty sure my kids don’t read my blog, so I’ll have to ask for it outright. I have no idea what I’m going to give my mom. I think she DOES read my blog sometimes, so i’m not sure I’ll give her one of these cards.. we’ll see.

I’d love to hear what creative fun you’re up to. Although… maybe you’re off to make Mom a card now?

  1. I am trying to purchase the flower lace card and am getting an error message when asking for a password to authenticate.

    • I’m sorry you’re having issues Teri. Where/when are you being asked for a password to authenticate? It is in Design Space and associated with a “update your plugin” type of screen?
