Birthday cards -- in spite of being considered as one quondam style of delivering affections -- do possess a comely elan deluged with sundry innocence, and ethereal charms. Never has an occasion laced with pomp, and panache witnessed its provenance barring the presence of greeting cards. For those who believe that cards have abandoned their quintessential enigma, spare a thought. Well, to be honest, they are not banal either.
Cards are meant to emote mammoth emotions with unmatched brevity, and ineffable alacrity. So what better, easier way to send your compassion, and affection across, to your beloved Mother, than presenting to her a card, on the occasion of her birthday. It's a special day for her, and for you. It is, indeed, your mother who marks your mark in this world. A card brimming with expressions of love, and humble appreciation is sure to delight her so much more than churning out plans for a high-brow festooning, and celebration. Here are some birthday card ideas that may help you create one for your mom. I hope they inspire you to do your best.
Creating a Warmhearted Fold
A Poetic Cradle of Love
Feelings lie soporific if not laced with poetic expressions. The nuances of feelings and frailties are steered supreme with esoteric visions of love, and bountiful appreciation for your mother. If you are wedded to words, and know your way through pouring your heart on paper, you have your plan moving. However, if poetry, and you cease to harmonize, you may well pen down a pensive prose to celebrate the ineffable bond you share with your mother. Breathe out your experiences with your mother; how she has seen you grow - from cradle to crèche to college. Framing pithy passages that set your thoughts agile, makes for an idea worth your time, and toil. Birthday quotes that aptly pin your mother's demeanor, and predispositions may spruce up your presentation forevermore.
Sounds of Music
Music is one inertia that walks into your soul barefooted, yet ceases to create a kerfuffle within. If your Mom is a music lover, why not present to her a card that opens by playing a joyous tune. A musical greeting card would add to the sap of celebration, and could serve to be an affectionate accompaniment to your prose, or poetry. You may gift her a pass to attend a concert headed by her favorite vocalist, and by Jove, notice those cheeks going pink!
Singsong your Sentiments
Doesn't matter if your voice invites a round of applause, or garners pleas for mercy, you may simply go ahead and sing, or hum (if you insist) a track that best portrays your gratitude toward your mother. You may record a 'Our Song' as well, if, indeed, there is one. Now, this shoots another prospect! If your mom is a vocalist herself, get her on the record. Your job would be easier if you have promising persuasion powers. En-graft the recording in the card, and watch those tears of joy well up. Be ready to hand her an embroidered handkerchief to wipe a tear or two. Besides, it would reflect on how courteous you have grown to be!
Digitally Yours . . .
E-cards have deluged the dot net greeting websites, revamping the quintessential paper fold. After all, it has a brand-new avatar to flash! Choose the one that caricatures your mother's persona well. A handy tool to manifest your affections, an e-card could be sent, and received 'successfully' without much banter. The feature of integrating special effects, I am certain, does not need a mention. Your mother is sure to drool over your card, and touched by your sentience.
A Snap for Keeps
Birthdays are like mini festivities, festooned with enamours of ecstatic elation. Freezing such moments in mood and mind, captures the finesse, and the essence of your invincible bond. A handmade card with a photograph of your beloved mom, or a photograph of your mom and you together, serves for an ideal birthday card idea. You may choose to pin a family photograph that reverberates as a simulacrum of inundated emotions. You may also have another leaf attached to the card that pronounces how uxorious your father is when it comes to mom. A picture of them exchanging vows in beatitude would be paragon.
Flying High with Years
For a superwoman of a mom, who wouldn't look up to her for ardor, adulation, and advice? Her alacrity to handle situations, predominantly those obstinately manhandled by you, is worth a thousand bows, and well . . . innumerable, openmouthed wows! From a fetus to being full-figured, it is your mother who has tolerated your tempers; nevetheless, has refused to tolerate anybody else tampering with your life. It is time you reward her with love aplenty. A ticket to her favorite holiday destination, a shopping voucher if she swears by shopping centers, or a book palace voucher, if she loves romancing her books after she officially calls it a day, makes for a special birthday card accompaniment.
Sketching The Charms
Your moms charms have worked on virtually everybody, so why not put her charms on a sketch pad! Sketch her portrait, and see those eyes widen with chagrin. If she is fond of growing greens, and loves admiring her untrammeled efforts, get your sketching paraphernalia to sketch the divine beauty of nature. The card may well remind her of the halcyon days of her vivid interactions with nature.
The ideas mentioned in here are sure to help you impress an image of love, and gratitude in the card. Don't trammel your creativity with the ideas aforementioned, for creativity, after all, has its doors ajar, inviting unending persiflage, and invincible thoughts, tinted with wit. Do Remember: However feeble your card may be in its appearance, for a mother, it is no less, than a treasure trove bosomed with unconditional love. Just snatch a look at her expression when you hand over the card to her, and you would know . . . well, you ought to know what I mean.
