As Mother’s Day approaches, many of us are looking for a heartfelt way to show appreciation and gratitude for the special women in our lives. When we create a handmade card that mirrors the beauty and uniqueness of the mothers we love, it becomes a treasure they will cherish forever. In this tutorial, I will guide you through the steps to create an elegant butterfly-themed calligraphy Mother’s Day card. The best part? The card comes together in as little as 30 minutes.

Written Tutorial: Quick Butterfly-Themed Calligraphy Mother’s Day Card
To get started making this butterfly-themed Mother’s Day birthday card, you’ll need a few supplies:
You’ll also need your glue of choice (I used UHU) and, optionally, a bone folder.
1. Make an Outline
First, fold your black cardstock in half to make a greeting card. Then, print out the medium lace butterfly at 85% (see the video tutorial for instructions). Once the butterfly has printed, cut it out.
Once you finish, open up the card and glue the medium lace butterfly in the center at a diagonal angle. Then, use your white gel pen to write a heartfelt message to the lucky mama who will receive your card! Finish up by erasing any white pencil guidelines once your ink has dried.
And that’s it! An elegantly simple butterfly-themed calligraphy birthday card. This Mother’s Day, I’m pairing this card with the gift of a gorgeous framed botanical watercolor letter for my mom, Delin. If you think the mom(s) in your life would appreciate a botanical letter, I encourage you to make one. They’re so special, just like the women that we love!
