Carlton Cards has such beautifully designed cards for Mother's Day. 


"Carlton Cards is introducing Lightscapes, a new collection of innovative cards for Mother’s Day that both sparkle and shine. Each card in this beautifully illustrated collection features a hidden panel inside.  Simply pull the panel to trigger a dazzling display of sparkling light along with beautiful music. "


Sparkling light appears when the panel is pulled, revealing another layer while music plays simultaneously. When the card lights up the colors also change and the lighting alternates.

"Taylor Swift, one of entertainment’s most gifted writers and storytellers, is also one of American Greetings most dynamic contributors.  The Mother’s Day collection features unique and casual copy inspired by Taylor, along with bold photography, lots of glitter with feminine designs.  Select cards include music by Taylor, including “The Best Day”, a song written for her mother."

The Taylor Swift / American Greeting collaboration is great! The design of this card comes with a nicely designed envelope, and the texture of the card adds an elegant touch.

"Kathy Davis, American Greetings content partner takes her inspiration from nature, using watercolours to capture its beauty.  Her stunning card collection for Mother’s Day offers delicate images and heartfelt me-to-you messages written in hand-lettered words with delicate images. "


 The design on the left of the card has string holding very elegantly placed beads on the card. The interior of the card is very charming. It is lined with a faint silver metallic color. The exterior has such vibrant colors and it is the perfect Mother's Day card to depict sunshine and flowers on the special day.

"Carlton Cards has hundreds of ways to send your love to all the special women in your life this Mother’s Day.  Choose from cards with a vintage-inspired feel with hand-lettering, floral photos, fabric or nostalgic images.  Cards that are heartfelt, light-humoured or downright funny will make mom smile with delight. "



All these cards are so beautiful for Mothers Day. You can tell that there was so much thought and care put into the design of each card. Textures and good quality of the materials are apparent in all of these designs.
