I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a pretty big card naysayer. I’m just not a huge fan of them. You go, spend $4-5 on a card that may or may not be funny or heartfelt, your recipient reads it, and then it gets thrown away. If the card isn’t super cute, funny, or tear-jerking, I tend to just pile them in a corner of my closet until I no longer feel guilty about throwing them away.
But, while I’m anti-store-bought cards, I’m pro-handmade cards. Especially handmade Mother’s Day Cards. Not that I’ve ever received one (I’m nowhere near close to having children or even getting married), but I feel much better about giving them rather than run-of-the-mill Hallmark cards.
Handmade cards just say “I love you” so much better. They’re a gift in themselves because they take time to make. Everyone can appreciate a little craftiness every now and again, not to mention energy.
Though my parents will be in Hawaii for their anniversary over Mother’s Day, I’ll be sure to have a handmade Mother’s Day card waiting for my mom when she gets home. I know she’ll love it.
Now, I just have to choose which one I want to make her… I think I’m leaning toward the Colorful Printable Origami Animal Card, but it’s just such a tough choice!
