Make your Mother's Day card a little extra special this year by adding the perfect sentiment. Whether you are making a traditional or classic Mother's Day card or creating something a little different, finding the right words can help to make your card that little bit more personal.
There are many ways of adding words to Mother's Day cards. In addition to adding words to the inside of the card, a few words or sentiments can be added to the front of the card as part of the design. This is a good way of incorporating a special message into the design. A longer poem or quotation can also form a major part of the design. This can look particularly effective when the poem or quotation is contained within a rubber stamped frame. Often, a poem or quotation can provide inspiration for a Mother's Day card design.
