How to make Mother’s Day greeting cards

If you’re looking for cute Mother’s Day gifts, you can easily turn these coloring sheets into cards.

There are four main methods we recommend.

  1. Print four pages per sheet (on cardstock) and cut into A6-size greeting cards
  2. Print foldable design (download below) on cardstock and fold in two
  3. Print foldable design on regular paper, cut and glue onto folded cardstock
  4. Print on regular paper and fold in two

I’ve explained how to go about each step below. They all come with their ups and downs, but if you have cardstock and a printer that can handle the sturdy paper, the first two options are my favorite.

Our four recommended options

#1 Print four pages per sheet cut into A6-size cards

Choose your favorite designs and let your printer do the magic by setting it to print four images on one sheet of cardstock.

Don’t worry, setting your printer to print four images per page is simpler than you might think!

Most printers have an option in the print settings that says something like “Multiple” or “Page Sizing & Handling.” When you find that, select “Multiple pages per sheet” (the exact wording may vary depending on your printer model). In the dropdown or field that lets you choose how many pages you want per sheet, select “4.” This tells your printer to scale down each image so that all four fit onto a single sheet of paper.

Before you hit ‘print,’ make sure to load your printer with cardstock. If you’ve never used cardstock in your printer before, give it a test run with just one sheet to make sure everything looks good. Cardstock is thicker than regular paper, so it gives your cards a more durable, high-quality feel—just what you want for a special Mother’s Day card.

#2 Print foldable design on cardstock and fold it in two

For a larger card, print our foldable card designs on an A4 piece of cardstock, then simply fold it in two. This method gives your card a robust feel and plenty of space for a heartfelt message inside (for inspiration, check out our funny Mother’s Day card messages).

It’s a wonderful way to make your card feel as special as a store-bought one, with the added personal touch of your coloring.

#3 Print foldable design on regular paper, cut and glue onto folded cardstock

If you’re not sure if your printer can handle cardstock, no worries!

Print your chosen design on regular paper (use our folded design for that), then cut it out and glue it onto a piece of folded cardstock. This gives you the best of both worlds: the ease of printing on regular paper with the polished finish of a cardstock base.

#4 Print on regular paper and fold in two

Looking for the simplest route to a heartfelt card? Print our foldable design on standard A4 paper and fold it in half. It’s quick, easy, and still leaves room for a lovely message inside. This method is ideal for a last-minute touch of thoughtfulness or a fun crafting session with the kids.
