With the price of cards today, it really is worth it just to make your own. It also shows a great deal of thoughtfulness. A couple of packs of coordinating cardstock, a favorite set of stamps, and an ink pad or two can go a really long way in terms of stretching the dollar. With these few supplies, I can make a plethora of different designs. You could too! Free ideas are plentiful on the internet if you’re not feeling too crafty when you sit down to make one for someone special.
I made this card for my aunt’s birthday using a technique called “reverse spotlighting”. It required 3 colors of cardstock, a circle punch, 1 flower stamp, 1 phrase stamp (or you can just print something off on your computer), and 2 colors of ink. Simple really. Fun, too!
