May 9th 2014 | Now Trending

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and you can be sure that your mom is expecting that you prepare accordingly! This year, instead of the old-school greeting card, you can add to your gift of flowers or chocolate a touching online card that your mom will not be expecting.

Using Wix.com’s website editor, you can create a personalized message that will show your mom just how much you care and appreciate all her love. If it sounds like a lot of work, we’re going to show you that it actually takes less time and effort than going to the store and buying one. Not to mention, your online card is 100% free!

Mother's Day Alert! How to Make A Free Online Card for your Mom

Let’s get started:

1. Pick a Template:

With a personal greeting card, you want to keep it as simple as possible. Choose a template that consists of a single page, like these. Alrenatively, you can work with a blank template and simply add images and your personal text.

2. Add an Image Gallery:

Nothing says Mother’s Day more profoundly than a collection of beautiful family photos. In the Wix editor, you can find a variety of image galleries to use, and then upload your photos easily.

*Tip: If you can scan old photos and combine them with current ones, your online card will immediately become a mini family album that your mom will cherish even more.

3. Write from Your Heart:

The main message of this card should be the personal words you want to share with your mother. Be ready with a text that expresses your love and gratitude. If you’re preparing a card not just from yourself but from siblings as well, ask each of them to contribute their own text to the project.

Write from Your Heart

4. Add “Mom Coupons”:

In one section of the online card, you can turn to the tradition of awarding mom coupons granting her a free pass from their house chores, guaranteeing that you will clean up your room when asked, promising that you will fix whatever is broken immediately when she asks, or anything else that your mom deserves (and you never really do).

You can easily create such coupons in the Wix editor with strip boxes or Clip Art and added text.

5. Mom Comes First:

When you’re preparing this card for your mom, think of what would be especially meaningful for her. Would she be happy to read a lovely poem that you composed just for her? Or would she prefer a more light-hearted atmosphere with personal “mom jokes”? Don’t forget, they call it Mother’s Day for a reason – make it about her!

6. Share and Show Off:

It’s pretty safe to assume that most moms would be ecstatic to see their children showing their love for them in public. Once your card is ready for sending, why don’t you email it to the extended family as well? Or better yet, if your mom is active on Facebook or other social media, you can post the card on the web. Forget about your mom embarrassing you on Facebook for just one day and give her the satisfaction.
