Card Your Mom This Sunday!

by Amy Carlberg

Might be a nice surprise–it probably doesn’t happen to her much anymore. Sure, sure, there’s no way you left it to the last minute. You’re not one of those kids. You definitely already got a card for Mother’s Day

Not. We’ve all been there: scrambling to make a sucky Mother’s Day card at the last second, scribbling furiously as you hear mimosa glasses clinking in the next room. I usually end up with some bubble letters on the outside, something like, “YOU ROCK, MOM!” and then on the inside, maybe something that rhymes. 

Well have no fear: BUST is here. 

We’ve gathered some of the most stellar, witty cards from across the internet (ok, mostly Etsy) so you aren’t puking with anxiety on Saturday night. Or if you’re reading this and thinking, “oh god, that’s this weekend?” and you don’t have time to get a card, hopefully the funny greetings below will inspire a heartfelt message of your own.

Although there’s nothing wrong with sticking to what’s tried and true.

Sometimes it’s best just to be straight up.





But you have other options too.

Ranging from the cinematic




…to the televisual


…the sentimental

…to the strong.

Don’t lose hope! You’re sure to find the right card for any mom.

Fun company Scribbler from across the pond in the UK has some neat stuff, too, but might be more of a hassle for last-minute shopping. I think they like puns over there.

Ok, ok, maybe that’s all you can bear for now.
