DIY Watercolor Greeting Cards for Mother’s Day

We’re taking it back to elementary school this Mother’s Day with DIY watercolor cards!

These cards take only a few minutes to make and add a thoughtful handmade touch to any gift. And in true Girl Talks Geek fashion, I made sure there was a way to add a geeky element.

Below is everything you need to create your own cards including:  tutorial links, geeky quotes, and a shopping list of gift ideas to pair with your colorful creation.


Watercolor Tutorials – As a beginner I’ve used Youtube as my teacher. Here are a few simple tutorials you can reference to create watercolor backgrounds and simple flowers:

Geeky Card Quotes:

  • I love you more than (favorite fandom)
  • I A-Dumbledore you, Mom!
  • To My Mother of Dragons, I love you!
  • Thanks for being a better mom than Cersei!

Gift Ideas:

  • Massage Gift Certificate to the NOW – I love the NOW! There are several locations in the LA area and they offer an elevated yet affordable experience. I recommend the Healer massage.
  • Cook & Dine Class: Hipcooks or The Gourmandise School – I’ve been to a few Hipcooks classes and they’re so much fun! You and a small group cook a meal together and then sit down and share it! This is such a great Mother’s day gift! 
  • Book + Journal + Candle: Recommended book: Girl, Wash Your Face (Life-changing book that’s perfect for mom!) Journal: Inspirational Journal Candle(s): I love Ellery Mae candles! She sells limited runs of Harry Potter inspired candles throughout the year and they smell amazing! 
  • Cozy Set: Pajamas, Slippers, Tea – Can’t go wrong with the basics!

I hope you and your mom have a magical Mother’s Day!
