Treat your Mum a special handmade Mother’s Day card this year. This card will put a smile on her face knowing you spent time making it with love.
A box of chocolates and a domed Mum sticker makes this card perfect for Mother’s Day, but it could be also sent to other female family members by changing the wording to, for example, ‘For My Grandma’.
