Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and if you haven’t starting thinking about what you’re doing for your mom or the mom-like figures in your life, I have a few ideas for you–all of which involve using the new Mother’s Day printable I’m sharing with you today!
Free Mother’s Day Printable
A few weeks ago, I was talking with my friend Shelby at Needmore Farms and we thought it would be fun to create a free Mother’s Day printable for her followers and mine to enjoy! And so, here you have it! The fruits of our labor and my latest printable creation!
Since Shelby and her family run a market that specializes in plants, produce, and gardening, we decided that a flower and garden theme would be perfect for this printable!
This Mother’s Day printable comes in four different colors: green, purple, peachy pink, and aqua blue. They’re all gorgeous, but I’ll be using the blue or green one for my mom because those are her favorite colors!
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
You may already have an idea of how you want to use these printable cards and that’s great! But if you’re looking for some gifting inspiration, I have a few ideas for you!
- In a gift basket (Your gift basket could have several themes. If your mom likes to garden, do a gardening theme. If she doesn’t like gardening, do a general flower or plant theme. If she’s a plant mom, fill with fun plant mom accessories. Needmore Farms has so many fun options for creating your own gift basket!)
- In a flower arrangement (You could make one yourself with inexpensive flowers from Trader Joe’s or you could purchase a pre-made bouquet.)
- Accompanying her favorite succulent or potted plant (You can get gorgeous plants at Needmore Farms or at your local home & garden store if you don’t live near Raleigh, North Carolina.)
Mother’s Day Printable Card
Making these printable cards is super easy! There are only a few steps, some of which are optional. All you have to do is download, print, cut, and arrange (I have three arrangement options for you!)
Downloading the Cards
Just like with all my other freebies, these Mother’s Day printable cards are for personal use only. You may not re-sell, re-distribute, or claim this work as your own.

I’ve compiled all four 4×6 printable cards into a two-page PDF for you. You can print both pages for all the color options or just print the one with your favorite color on it. It’s up to you!

Printing Mother’s Day Cards
The first step of printing is deciding how (or where) you’re going to print your Mother’s Day cards. If you have a functioning printer (which I do not. lol!), then you can easily print these at home. If not, then I suggest FedEx Office. I’ve been printing there for years now and have been pleased with their work every time.
If you’ve never printed at FedEx before, here’s a breakdown of how to do it.
On the FedEx website:
- Click “visit new marketplace” under the “Design & Print” tab
- Click “upload & print”
- Upload your file
- Adjust the print settings to your preferred specifications
- Add to cart
- Select “pick up at store” or “ship to address”
- Enter your payment details
- Agree to the terms and conditions
- Pick up your order in a few hours or wait for it to arrive in the mail
For paper, I like using the 110lb. Index option in the “professional white papers” section. It’s great and the printed portions have the slightest sheen to them.
If you’re printing at home, I recommend using cardstock.
Cutting the Cards
Once you’ve printed your cards, it’s time to cut them out. You can use either a paper trimmer (I love my Fiskars trimmer!) or a pair of scissors to cut along the edge of each 4×6 card.
Assembling the Cards
If you’re using your Mother’s Day cards in a gift basket or in a flower arrangement, you’ll need to attach the cards to something to make them stand up.
To do this, you’ll need some kebab skewers or popsicle sticks along with some tape. I’m using washi tape, but you can use whatever you have on hand. You can use glue too, but you’ll have to be careful that it doesn’t warp the paper as it dries.
To assemble, flip your card over, grab two kebab skewers, and tape them to the back of the card. If you’re using popsicle sticks, you can tape them to the back just like I’m doing with the skewers in the photos up above. Once attached, arrange your card in your gift basket or floral arrangement. If your skewers are too long, you can take a pair of wire cutters and trim the ends until they’re the right height.
If you’d rather tie your card to your gift, go ahead and punch a hole in the corner and thread ribbon or bakers twine through the hole and then tie it around your present.
One other option would be to use these as flat cards and put them in envelopes. If that’s what you want to do, then your work is done as soon as you’ve finished cutting them out.
Mother’s Day Gift Basket Ideas
Of all the ideas I listed up above, I decided to make my mom a flower-themed basket for Mother’s Day! I don’t live in North Carolina, so I was unable to shop at Needmore Farms for my gift basket goodies. Instead, I went to my local Target and Home Goods to see what they had to offer.
I found some really cute items including a flower mug, a seed bomb, a luxurious body soap, and a floral picture frame. I haven’t done it yet, but I’m going to add a photo of my mom and I to the frame.
There you have it! I hope you like this printable, and if you’re in North Carolina, swing on by and visit my friends over at Needmore Farms!
If you’re a mother, I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day! And if you’re not, I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating the Mother’s and Mother-like figures in your life!
