Along with sending physical cards, family members have adopted sending virtual cards on special occasions. In 2020, the act of sending a virtual card is just as thoughtful as a physical card. Spending the time to create something unique for the person you love is undoubtedly a GR8 gift.
E-mails, text messages, group chats, and social networks have all created new opportunities to send a personalized message to someone special. Having the right image to share can be as simple as downloading something beautiful that matches mom’s personality or creating something more personal.
Creating a Mother’s Day Card
When creating a Mother’s Day card, the first decision is choosing the wording. Decide if you want to use a favorite quote, newly found phrase, or write your own heartfelt words.
Leading with a simple design and including your message below the image is a way to create a cute visual while still incorporating a thoughtful message.
If you don’t have a specific design, theme, or color palette in mind, one option for finding inspiration is using one of your mom’s favorite things as a theme for the card. It could be her favorite place, color, hobby, or food.
Another method is using the wording as a source of design inspiration. Choose images and colors that play off the words to unify the design and text. Look for online templates and examples of what others have done as a form of inspiration.
The design software, Canva is a free graphic design tool with thousands of templates. They offer an excellent tutorial on getting started. You can add fun elements like flowers, hearts, and text over the templates to create your own card that’s 100% unique.
Then, you can either print the card out if you wish you mail it (yes, they have a card template just for that!), or you can download the file as an image to send via e-mail. Either way, you’re creating something just for mom that she’s sure to love.
Mother’s Day Cards for Download
If you’re not feeling arts-and-craftsy, that’s okay too. Check out the four Mother’s Day cards below that are free to download right from GR8NESS.
For the Mom Who Does it All
This card is perfect for all mom’s, but especially the ones who seem to make being a mother look easy. A catchy phrase to remind mom how much you cherish the morals and life lessons that impacted your success today.
For the Most Elegant Grandma
A simple, but elegant design reminding grandma, or older mothers, we appreciate them and all they continue to do. Including a message to grandmas on Mother’s Day is a nice way of showing you value the relationship you have.
For the Mom (or Child) Who May Feel Under Appreciated
While the card isn’t as outwardly dark as the topic may appear, the truth is, a percentage of people don’t have the closest relationship with their mothers. Sometimes the best messaging in this situation is simple or generic. Holidays are typically a time to express gratitude to the ones we love and if this otherwise makes you uncomfortable this could be a perfect time.
For the Mom Who’s Also Your BFF
No one knows your struggles more than your BFF, who happens to hear the absurdities of day to day life, not always bad. Fellow mothers have a unique bond in experiencing things no one else can understand. One universal truth among moms is the way it changes you for the better.
