This collection of decorative papers designed by Rhiannon Bull is perfect for showing your mum how much you love her, and you don’t even have to wait until the official date – we bet every mum would love to receive these cards any day of the year. We certainly would!

Here, we’ve created an easy easel card with the standout ‘Mum’ sentiment, using the free floral-patterned paper for the background and we finished it off the design with pink ribbon. You could even make a matching gift tag, by cutting out just the ‘M’ and layering it on the same patterned papers.

And if you like this make, why not check out our full collection of patterned papers – we’re always updating the page with new (free!) downloads, so make sure to bookmark it and keep checking back.
