Bright Flowers Mother's Day Card

Faux flowers come to life on this bright and cheerful Mother's Day card. Layer a button over each flower and attach the arrangement to the card with a few stitches.

Paper Flower Mother's Day Card

Blooming Flower Mother's Day Card

A few pieces of patterned paper cut into different-size circles form the flower on this easy Mother's Day card. To make the card, fold a light pink piece of cardstock in half and adhere a darker pink piece to the front, leaving a thin light pink border. Use a scallop circle punch for the biggest circle, then layer the other circles on top, gradually getting smaller with each one. Use letter stickers to spell out a sweet message for Mom, and finish the card by adding a pretty ribbon stem.
