Handmade Cards Make Their Day

I’ve been playing with our Hopscotch papers again.  I love working with these bright, cheerful colors.  I couldn’t resist grabbing my current favorite stamp set Happy To Be Friends for this cute card.  I’m hoping it will be just the thing to give a friend a smile when she finds it in her mailbox.

Wondering how to take this card to a whole new level?  Try these tips for an even bigger WOW factor with this design.

  1. Round the corners of the paper strips or dovetail them
  2. Fill in the flower centers with bling
  3. Ink the edges of the card and the sentiment square to add dimension.  (The sentiment square is already raised with foam tape.)
