With Mother’s Day less than two weeks away, I thought it would be a nice little treat to share a part of what I’m sending along to my mom this Mother’s day. Her favorite colors are pink and green, so as an ode to her, I lettered and created this Mother’s Day printable card and envelope template for all to enjoy. The card ends up a cute little 3″ x 3″ piece that you can use to send some love. Best of all, both the card and envelope print on one 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper, so all you have to do is print, fold, tape up, and send! Simple? Simple.
I picked up this scoring board a couple months ago, and it has seriously been a life-saver for all kinds of crafts lately. It just takes everything you fold, and gives it that professional touch. I suggest you get one for your design arsenal—this is the one I use. Scoring is seriously addicting, hah.
Next, fold up the envelope and tape it up. You could also use a sticker, or any kind of glue on the inside. I just have a washi tape fetish, so, you know. Also—the template that you print is not distressed like this. For some reason the paper I used for this was not a great match for my printer/ink, and as I handled the card and envelope, it started to wear off and give it this distressed look. I kind of liked it, so I just went with it. Just a note that yours might not have that same quality.
Et voila! Use your prettiest handwriting to write the address, slap on a cute stamp, and you’re ready to send!
Happy early mother’s day to all you wonderful ladies — you too mom, duh! Love you :)
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and get to enjoy something that this month of May deserves. A Barbeque perhaps? I’ve been experimenting with oven-made ribs lately. I’m such a wuss when it comes to grills, hah.
