Cut Out "MOM" Card for Mother's Day - finished card standing on a shelfI made my mom this Mother's Day card. It is simple yet sweet because it's handmade. My mom isn't a fan of "real cut flowers", so I thought it would be cute to decorate this card with a flower/floral motif from a Macy's catalog that I was about to toss out anyway!

This is a fun and different way of making a greeting card. You can apply this same concept to a birthday card and cut out the recipient's name if it isn't too long, or use for Father's Day, and cut out "Dad".

Total Time: 30-45 minutes
