Simple Mothers Day Card Ideas!

Mothers Day Card Ideas



Easy Mothers Day Card Ideas that require just paper and glue are great ways to get your kids involved in the craft!



Here is a simple Mother's Day card that I created for my mom.

I used scrap pieces of patterned paper that complemented one another and stenciled out a couple of flowers to create a type of centerpiece for the front.

I decided to write "Mom" on a circular piece of cardstock and glue it to the middle of the flower - making the card nice and simple.

The multiple layers of cardstock make this card extra sturdy.
For added dimension to your Mothers Day Card ideas you can try:

  • Adding fake flowers to the front instead of a paper flower

  • Use actual ribbon or pretty lace for breaking up the four sections - I used strips of patterned paper because I didn't have ribbon that would match

  • Instead of a flower, you can use a different shape like a heart, star, or even circles

  • You can choose more vibrant colors to make the card really stand out - I enjoyed using the simple patterned pastels for this card

  • Embellish the card with extra little flowers, buttons, or bows

I wanted to create a really simple card that would be easy to make with material on hand, but you can certainly use this card as a launching pad for creating more elaborate Mothers Day Card ideas.




Material Needed:

  • Cardstock for the actual card, I chose yellow

  • 4 Pieces of patterned paper to make the different sections of the card

  • 2 Strips of patterned paper (or ribbon) to go vertically and horizontally across the card

  • 2 Paper flower cut-outs, I just used a stencil that I had on hand, but you can certainly just cut out the shape of the flower

  • 1 Small circle for the center of the flower, I wrote "Mom" on the small circle

  • Inky black pen for writing "Mom"

  • Craft knife

  • Steel ruler

  • Cutting mat

  • Rubber cement or your choice glue/adhesive




Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Cut and fold your cardstock to the desired size.

  2. Cut one patterned paper to fit just inside the front of the card, leaving a small border around it.

  3. Cut the strips of patterned paper to fit vertically and horizontally along the card.

  4. Cut the other three patterned pieces of paper to fit into the other sections of the front of the card - kind of like a puzzle.

    TIP: Use the strips of patterned paper to help you visualize and measure how big or small the pieces will be.

  5. Cut out the two flowers, I chose to stencil the flowers onto other pieces of patterned paper, but you can use solid cardstock as well.


  6. Cut out a circle to fit into the center of the flower and write "Mom"

  7. Glue the largest patterned paper onto the front of the card.

  8. Glue the other pieces of patterned paper onto the front of the card.

  9. Glue the strips of patterned paper horizontally and vertically on the front of the card, sectioning off the different patterned paper.


  10. Glue the flowers on the intersection of the two strips of paper.

  11. Glue the circle with "Mom" written on it to the center of the flower.
