Have you noticed that kid’s cards get more and more interactive with each year. From sticker sheets to detachable Bat Signals (yeah, that’s a thing), cards for kids are meant to entertain. Why not do the same thing for Mom this year? These DIY coloring cards for Mother’s Day are super easy to make and give her some much needed relaxation.

We’re back this week with another awesome Bring on the Crafts Blog Hop! I love this hop so much because it challenges us to push our creativity. This month’s theme is stamps and I didn’t want to just bring you another boring stamp craft. Instead, I wanted to think outside of the box.
Coloring is such a great way for moms to de-stress and it takes zero prep, which we all know is crazy important in our hectic lives. Now you can easily make a coloring card for Mother’s Day with this super simple tutorial. It uses items you likely already have in your craft stash, except maybe the card forms so it’s totally budget friendly too! This is the perfect card to accompany Mom’s gift this year.
DIY Coloring Cards Materials
- Blank Ivory Cards
- Black Pigment Ink
- Letter Stamps
- Mandala Stamp
- Transparent Tape
- Acrylic Block (if using unmounted stamps)
First, open up your blank cards and pull out a few blanks.
Next, fold your cards. They have fold line preformed but if you have trouble, use a boning tool to make it easier to fold.
Once your card is folded, stamp “Mom” on the front center of the card blank.
Then cut a small piece of paper to cover the word “Mom”.
- I used a small acrylic block to measure the paper.
Next, use a very small piece of tape to attach the piece of paper over the stamped word.
- I placed a small piece of tape in the center of my “O”. Then centered the paper over it to ensure that it was centered properly on the card.
After the paper is in place, stamp your design on the card.
Continue stamping your card until it is covered with a design.
- Because you are using pigment ink, be careful while working so that you don’t smudge the design. Once it’s dry, you’re fine.
- Place the card on a scrap piece of paper so that you don’t get ink on your work surface at the edges.
When you finish stamping, remove the small piece of paper and you’re done!
Step 9 (Optional)
I don’t like blank cards if I can find a stamp that expresses a sentiment. I stamped the inside of mine with a quote from Alfred Tennyson. Many people associate this quote with romantic love but I think it’s more encompassing. What mom doesn’t want to know that she is frequently thought about and loved?
- The stamp I used is from a Close to My Heart set. I don’t know if it has been retired.
How much fun are these DIY coloring cards for Mother’s Day? It’s like giving Mom a little extra dose of self-care and we could all use a bit more of that.
