I love to send cards. The real ones sent through Snail Mail. I am often frustrated by the choices I am offered when looking for cards.
I found these at Michael’s on sale this week for only $2.50!!! :
They are very simple kraft paper cards and envelopes:
My collection of “stuff” exceeds my ability to use it all! Ribbons, paper bits, fabric scraps… I found some bits and pieces and spent about 2 hours in my studio this morning playing.
I now have 25 pretty cards I can use when I want to send out a quick note. Here are a couple of close-ups:
A piece of scrap fabric and a small paper word. Stitched on by machine using a longer stitch.
A paper scrap from a journal project last year and a small copper piece I found on sale about 2 years ago.
Washi tape on the diagonal, a small paper word, and an ATC made by my friend Liz McNabb.
Washi tape on the horizontal with another ATC I chose during the ATC swap in Houston in November.
So much fun! And 25 cards for less than the cost of one at the store. And mine are unique!
