Mother's Day crept up on me this year. (I thought it was next week.) Forget about sending flowers to my mother. She thinks flowers are a big waste of money and gets cross if you go that route. Weird, right? (Send her flowers to me!) So to make a long story short, I made her this free printable card, which she will like ... and that's all I care about!
In my pressed-for-time desperation, I discovered a website I believe is a cut above some others. It has a nice selection of pretty designs, and I especially like how the option [to print 2-sided (back and front)] produces a normal size greeting card.
I used sturdy paper stock, plus a second sheet of regular weight printer paper (8.5 inch wide by 11 inch tall letter-size). After printing my design twice (on both sheets), I folded each sheet in half, then glued the ligher weight sheet inside the sturdy sheet of paper just to make a fancy card. With two layers of paper, the card has the weight to stand up.
This is the inside of the card. You can make edits. I changed the color to blue, but didn't add a wordy message. I wrote a message by hand. You can also leave the inside page blank if you like.
Trust me, I'm far from crafty, so if I can make a lovely card, anybody can. Printed on good paper, the card looks mightly fine! I also mailed the card in a fancy, good paper stock envelope.
What a great find for occasional personalized greeting cards! Mix it up with store bought ones.
Happy Mother's Day to Mothers everywhere, and to my mom, Glücklicher Tag des Mamma!
