Homemade Greeting Cards

I have really enjoyed making greeting cards for all occasions for loved ones.  As I cut and paste, color and paint, create and plan, I further think of the person and my gratitude for he/she being in my life.

Embellishments are added, along with washi tape, which give dimension and interest to the card.  Some cards are made for my grandchildren and use their interests as a base.  In this card the picture part of a postcard from the US post office provided a perfect image complete with drawn in buildings and vehicle washi tape as the traffic below for a young grandson.

This was for a young granddaughter complete with bareback rider with recipient’s face pasted on, along with circus images and circus washi.

From the remarks received, the recipients appreciate the extra thought that goes into making  a card especially for them.  I also use my scans of the completed cards to put into Project Life albums to further commemorate their birthdays, anniversaries, new births, congratulations, etc.
