In this world of ever-increasing technology, the art of sending letters seems to have gotten lost. That being said, I’ve seen a resurgence of people sending pretty cards and letters and pocket letters.
So the next time you need to tell someone something–whether they live ’round the corner or ’round the world, try sending them something that will brighten their day, like these lovely cards that Miss Laura has made!
Take it away Laura!
I recently cleaned out a bunch of my handmade cards, and randomly sent a bunch of them off to friends and family. No sense in keeping them tucked away in a drawer, right? While going through my stash of cards, I came across one that I had created over 7 years ago (I searched the card out on my blog to verify that) and decided to use it as inspiration for a few new cards.
I sized the circle border to fit the length of my card (these cards are 4″ x 9.25″) and cut it from two colors of cardstock. I debated between several of Kerri’s flower shapes, but finally settled on the funky flower from the Hello There class freebies (all of the freebies that come with the classes are reason enough to take them!) and cut several flowers for each card, all the same size. To create my circles, I used one of the backings to an arrow cut file in the Need Directions kit.
I had fun digging out some supplies that I haven’t used in a while, like the paper flowers, puffy paint and Stickles, and my embossing folders (I do actually use those quite often). Since I embossed my cardstock circles, I couldn’t stamp my sentiment, which was my plan all along. So I simple stamped my sentiment onto plain white cardstock, and fussy cut each out before adhering to my cards.
