In order to edit this personalized Mother’s Day photo card you need to first open it in Canva. If you don’t have an Canva account, it will ask you to register. There is a free and a Pro version. You only need the free version to edit this card. If you want to add certain cliparts to your card, you need a Pro version. However, if you are just editing the photos and adding text, the free version is all you need.

how to download Mother's day card in Canva

Click on Download on top right hand corner. Save it as PDF PRINT. This gives you the best print quality. Save personalized Mother’s Day photo card to your computer or other desired location.


If you want to add more cliparts such as florals, you can search Canva wide selections of graphics by clicking on ELEMENTS icon on the left side menu. Some of the graphics have the yellow crown. This means that it is part of Pro Canva, which is a paid version. If you really want to use the graphic you have to pay $1 when you download your card. Each Pro graphics/elements are $1. You also have the option of trying out Pro Canva for free for 30 days, making all the crown elements of Canva free to use. Just remember to cancel before your trial is up so you don’t get charged.


I recommend printing these on high quality white cardstock. Use a scissor or paper trimmer for a more accurate and neater cut of your card. Fold the paper in half to complete your card.
