Handcrafted cards; Down to the last one…

This past Friday (May 1) we celebrated my BF’s son’s birthday. He turned 19 on May 3.

I went to my selection of cards, only to find that only one white embossed card existed and I had no more envelopes. Sighs… since I did not have time, I used the card and simply tucked the card (along with his gift of money) into a tiny gift bag.

Yesterday, my daughter and I hung out the entire day and so I started making cards/envelopes.

I love bright colors and so naturally I chose the appropriate card stock and patterned paper.

I also wanted something quick and simple so I did not get elaborate with emboss, stamps, etc., I’ll be making more cards this week, to build up my supply and I’m sure I’ll get a bit more fancy, although I don’t think I’ll get as elaborate with mine as Jennifer.
