I love giving people who touch my life a handmade gift bag with some cards in it. It makes me happy to create something for them. It makes them happy to receive a little gift. When they send out the cards they make other people happy. After all who doesn't like to find a card or package in their mailbox?
Lately, I've been creating some "fruity" cards which I will share with you today and on Friday which happens to be National Watermelon Day.
I find stamping the same image over and over again, heat embossing each image, and then coloring the images in to be very therapeutic. I created this card the other night after a very long day.
I have a collection of brads and some decorative buttons in one of the drawers near my desk. They are sorted into muffin liners that Toni gave me years ago.
I prefer to add brads to my cards in place of buttons because they are flatter and go through the mail more easily. I added a strawberry brad to this simple card.
Here's another "grape" card created with scraps.
Have a fun-filled day!
