"Hi" Handmade Cards


Let's talk cards. In my opinion, I think cards that are made by someone are the most endearing cards ever. The kind you save forever, keep in a special place, and cherish always. I don't often make cards, but when I do I always love making them because they always have someone in mind and the joy on their faces is priceless!

Moving has been hard on me and even though it's only 4 hours away, its enough to miss my sweet friends back where I used to live. I was thinking the other day that I'd like to surprise one of my friends by sending her some "hi" cards. Purposefully leaving them blank so she can use them when she chooses, its more fun that way! Plus, I am almost sure that my friend will send me one of these sweet cards back with a note of encouragement!











I like clean and classic lines when making cards. I like the elements and supplies to speak for themselves thus making the creative process easy, yet super cute! As you can see here with the four cards I made, I kept the theme, colors, and sizes all around the same. I used the collection elements as the card base and went from there! I love the pops of pink, blue, and green!

Go be inspired and make some cards that will touch one of your friends too!

These cards are beautiful but won't they need a small box to send them? I have to mail cards mot just hand them out to friends & family. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.
