Custom Cards

How great is it that ALL those scrapbooking supplies can double-duty as card making supplies?! A few weekends ago we had a combo brunch for graduation and Mother's Day. In my opinion, simplified beautiful cards are so much more fun to give (and receive) than those cards from the grocery store that are chalk-full of gooey-ness.

For added dimension, use that squishy tape or foam dots. And buttons make wonderful centers for little tiny paper flowers. (Novice tip: to make really cute tiny butterflies, fold paper in half first, just like when you were a little kid making cut-out hearts.)
