Mother’s Day 2020 will be one like we’ve never experienced before, just like Easter and hopefully not too many more holidays. COVID 19 has changed life as we knew it, but nevertheless things must go on and mom still needs to be shown appreciation.

Mothers do so much for their children and others around them constantly. While I feel like appreciation should be shown all throughout the year, Mother’s Day is the national day for which moms are showered with love.

If you’re looking to craft something handmade for mom with your Cricut machine, this Mother’s Day card is the perfect gift for her and so easy.

Overview of process

The process of making this Cricut Mother’s Day Card is simple. You basically use your Cricut machine to cut the design out of cardstock and use a different color cardstock to glue to the inside of your card.

What kind of cardstock to use

For this project I used 65 lb cardstock, this cardstock seems to resemble the weight of typical greeting cards. You can use heavier cardstock such as 80 lb or 100 lb cardstock if you want a thicker card. My card size was 5.5 in. x 4.25 in. 

Supplies you’ll need:

Step 1: Upload the SVG File

First upload the svg file in Cricut Design Space. Check out my blog post How To Upload SVG Files To Cricut Design Space if you’re unsure of how to do this. You can download this free Mother’s Day svg file in my Free Resource Library.

The extra rectangle that is included in the svg file is the piece that you will glue inside your card.

Step 2: Add score lines

Click the Shape button and then click Score Line. If your score line is vertical, rotate 90 degrees so it’s horizontal.

Make your score line 6 inches long, longer than your card. Add 3 more score lines so that you can fold the card easily.

Step 3: Align your score lines

Click the Align button and then click the Center Horizontally button, just to make sure your score lines are centered on your card. 

Step 4: Cut your card

Select your card and all the score lines and click Attach, in the bottom right corner. Position your design and the extra rectangle where you want them on your mat and click Continue

Choose cardstock, whichever weight you’re using, from the list of materials and click Continue.

Load your cardstock on your mat. Be sure to use a different color cardstock for the extra rectangle.

If you’re using a Cricut Explore Air or Cricut Explore Air 2, put your stylus pen into the accessory clamp A and press the Go button on your Cricut machine

Step 5: Glue your card

After you peel your card and the extra rectangle off your mat, use your glue stick to glue the extra rectangle to the inside of your Mother’s Day card.
