Scratch Off Mother’s Day Card

Is it me, or does Mother’s Day seem early this year?  It feels that Lent has only just begun, and now we are already over halfway through it.  For those of you wondering why I have brought Lent into this, Mother’s Day is also known as Mothering Sunday and Refreshment Sunday.  Historically servants were released from work for the day and would return home to their mothers.  It is also the day within Lent that the fasting was allowed to be relaxed.  This is why we celebrate Mother’s Day on a completely different day to everyone else.  The vast majority of countries celebrate it on the second Sunday of May.  This year I have been making a scratch off Mother’s Day card.

Make sure you follow my homemade gift board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own scratch off Mother’s Day card you will need:

  • Card
  • Sharpie
  • Black paint
  • Washing up liquid
  • Pens
  • Paint brush.

On your card draw a couple of boxes and write (use a permanent pen for this so it doesn’t run) in their gift ideas that you could do to surprise your mum.  This could be breakfast in bed, spa day, dinner out, doing the washing up etc.  It has to be something that you are either willing to pay for her to do or that you are willing to do for her.  She can scratch these boxes off at any point, it doesn’t just have to be on Mother’s Day.

To cover up the gift ideas, add a bit of washing up liquid to some black paint.  I did try this with different coloured paint, and it didn’t really work.  You could see the writing underneath it, no matter how many coats of paint I did.

When the paint has dried, decorate the rest of your card.

Wishing all the mums out there an incredibly happy Mother’s Day.
