Steps to Make Your Mothers Day Card
First things first print your free printable Mothers Day on sturdy card stock. I personally think these look best on white card stock, but you may also want to try cream, light pink, or kraft brown paper, too.
The cards are formatted to be printed on standard 8.5 by 11-inch paper. You can print them super easily at home if you have a color printer.
If you don’t have a color printer, you can send them to a local office supply store to have them printed for forty cents or so. Easy!
Once you’ve printed your card, you’ll see that there are cut lines around the perimeter of the card to make the next step easy for you.
Now it’s time to trim up your cards. Once trimmed, the card will measure 5 by 7 inches.
If you’re using a paper trimmer (which you can find really affordable online!), line up the cut lines and run the blade down the paper. Otherwise, use a sharp pair of scissors, take your time, and keep your hand steady.
Here’s the step that separates homemade cards from artisan-made cards: folding.
When you fold your cards, be sure to score the paper so it folds nicely. When you score the paper, you leave a little indentation in it.
If you’re using a paper trimmer to cut your paper, check to see if the paper trimmer can score paper too. Often trimmers have both a cutting blade and a scoring blade. Move the cutting blade away and run the scoring blade down the mid-line of your card.
If you’re not using a paper trimmer, you can easily score your paper with a ruler and the back edge of a dull butter knife. Line up your ruler halfway down the card and create a soft dent down the paper.
Once you fold your paper along the crease, smooth the back edge of your knife along the fold to flatten it on the outside of the card.
