I made this stitched mothers day card and added a cross stitch border and some scrapbook bling embellishments to add some excitement to this card layout.

This is quite an easy card to make. The main thing is choosing the right patterned paper and just embellished it with blings and cross stitches. Then add the 'To a Special Mother' message on the top.
Below is how I did it step-by-step. Hope this cross stitch card will give you some Mother's day card ideas as well as inspiration to create your own Happy Mothers Day cards.
Note: If you don't have the the patterned paper, just use one that has a border pattern at the bottom or you can create your own border and attach directly to the front of the white cardstock.
Though this stitched Mother's Day Card looks simple to make, it does takes a bit of time making it because this is a cross stitch card and so needs some sewing.
The important part is getting the holes pierced properly. I use We R Memory Keepers' Sew Easy stitch piercing tools because they are convenient and quite effective although if you don't apply the right pressure, some holes might not be properly pierced. Then you would need a head pin or a sharp tool to correct it.
But then it's better than tracing or drawing the dots and trying to pierced it by hand.
Viola! Your simple cross stitched Mothers Day Card is ready to be posted. You can print a mother's day poem or a mother's day quote inside the card or write your own message. I feel that a personal handwritten message is the best.
A Mother's Prayer
Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day,
Running errands, matching socks,
Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
Yet, when I steal a moment, Lord,
That you have blessed me all the while
