Homemade Cards for Any Occasion

Receiving a card in the mail is one of those special moments that can really brighten someone's day.  Receiving a handcrafted card pushes the envelope even further (pun intended) by showing someone that you really care.  Taking time to make and send a homemade card is a timeless treasure made especially valuable during this instant message/texting/tweeting world we live in today.

That being said, here are some cards that my mom and I made for a local fundraiser.  Feel free to grab some inspiration from them.  Each set comes with a card and matching envelope:

{That reindeer stamp is one of my very favorites- isn't it beautiful?!}


{The spider was made sort of 3-D looking so it jumps right off the card.  Spooky!}

Love/Valentine's Day
{Loving the "lumpy bumpy" stuff on the card?  Learn how to make them in any design HERE}

Mother's Day
{You can make 3-D flowers like this yourself too!  Just check out this post for the how-to}

Father's Day
{I love how the "BEST" pops out from the card}


{This was my first craft to use bakers twine and I loved it!  It looks like a little gift wrapped up, doesn't it?}

{I love the colors, the brackets, the birdcage on the envelope... I love it all!  Plus, "good luck" cards can be used for almost anything}

Your Turn!
Next time you want to show someone how special they are to you, forgo the tweet stating that #momrocks and get crafting!  I can promise that the gesture will be appreciated (and it's fun for you too!)

Happy Crafting,
