A quirky Mother’s Day e-card with a great pun

If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day e-card that just screams “I got it from my mama,” this is definitely the one to send. From Paperless Post, the light pink digital card features a pair of denim jeans with the text “Thanks for the genes” in orange. Don’t love the color scheme? You can customize the background and adjust other elements of the card as well to personalize it for your mom.

If you find an e-card (or two, or three) at Paperless Post that you want to send, you’ll need to purchase a pack of coins to exchange for the digital card. The coins function as credits to purchase the e-card and the more coins you spend, the more elements of the card you can customize.


A pretty floral Mother’s Day e-card

You can definitely gift your mom a beautiful bouquet for Mother’s Day, but for the mom who really loves a thoughtful gesture and an array of flowers, this Mother’s Day e-card from Paperless Post is a great choice. The floral design on the card’s front is from Rifle Paper Company, so it delivers the same gorgeous appeal you (and likely your mom) know and love from the stationery goods company. Though you can alter the card’s interior text, what’s already written is a super sweet sentiment. Inside, the card reads, “Mom, Thank you for always being there. Happy Mother’s Day” in gold foil on a lavender background.


A Mother’s Day e-card for your stepmom

As a stepmom myself, I can personally attest to how much joy my stepkids bring to my life. Any day that I can celebrate that bond is a day that I will absolutely take advantage of.

If you want to make sure you stepmom feels totally loved and appreciated, a Mother’s Day e-card, like this one from Paperless Post, is a simple way to show you care. The cute design and thoughtful gesture will not be lost on her, I promise.

A Mother’s Day e-card for when you’re far away

If you don’t live near your mom, celebrating Mother’s Day can be a challenge sometimes. But this Mother’s Day e-card from Paperless Post can help you solve at least part of your distance dilemma. On the front of the card are two cups of tea on a light blue background with pretty script that reads, “Together Apart.” Inside is contrasting salmon-colored text that reads, “Dear mom, Thanks for everything you do. We’re so lucky to have you!” Although the card is addressed specifically for a mom, Paperless Post will allow you to customize the text inside so that you can send this sweet card to any mom you want to celebrate this Mother’s Day, no matter where or who they are.

Just because you waited until the last minute doesn’t mean you’re short on choices when it comes to Mother’s Day e-cards. No matter what kind of message you’re trying to send, there’s a card out there that sums it up perfectly.
