Choosing the perfect setting is essential when creating this Mother’s Day gift. The Background always sets the tone for a great photo and you can do the same with your card. Select a photo of a sentimental place for you and your mom. You can then overlay a more recent photo of you and your mum in the older setting. You could also simply use one of our Mother’s Day Backgrounds for a hassle-free option.

  • Go to the Creative Tab on the Main menu.
  • Select Background
  • Scroll and choose any of AirBrush’s existing backgrounds or upload your own.
  • Adjust the scale of the subject by pinching in and expanding out.
  • Use featurettes like Blend, Edge, Brightness, Blur or Eraser to perfect your edit.
  • Tap the checkmark to save your edit

Mother’s Day Filter

One of the best enhancing touches is always an AirBrush Filter. There are so many choices that not finding the right filter is impossible. The right Filter can add saturation, increased contrast or a monotone wash depending on the feeling you want to invoke in the reader. Your Mother’s Day gift is further enhanced by the Mother’s Day filters AirBrush developed for the holiday. From the eight Filters we’ve created there’s one to suit your custom card.

  • Go to the Filter tab on the main menu.

In the good old days when physical cards were still a thing, we’d spend countless minutes (maybe even hours) pouring over the options to find the one that truly conveyed our feelings. Sometimes we’d stumble upon a card with the perfect prose, but often there were more misses than hits. Fortunately, with AirBrush, you can say exactly what you want to say to your mom using our Text tool. Feel free to get super sentimental and make mention of cherished memories or you can lighten the mood with an inside joke. It’s all up to you!

  • Go to the Creative Tab on the Main menu.
  • Select Text and type in your copy
