Showing Love with Handmade Cards

Love is a 4 Legged Word Card 1

Every day is a great day to make a handmade card. A card has so much potential to encourage today and for years to come. Cards are brilliant treasures! Today, we share beautiful ideas from Ginny Nemchak and Nichola Battilana. The rich colors of these cards will make your Tuesday. 

First, we have this gorgeous card by Ginny using Raining Cats & Dogs. We love her eye-catching image she used as the centerpiece and all the layering and embellishments perfectly finish this gorgeous card.

Now, we have a brilliant and thoughtful Couture card from the fabulous Nichola. Take it away, Nichola!

"I’ve called this project “Couture Card for Fabulous Aunties” but really, it would be suitable for any fabulous person, and especially fitting if given for no reason at all. This particular card was given for a very good reason to my very own ‘fabulous auntie’ (actually, I have 7 of them!). We affectionately call this particular auntie “Martha” because she thinks of everything. She sends cards for absolutely every occasion. ‘Sorry you lost your wallet’, ‘Congratulations on your first successful pie!’, ‘Happy International Talk Like A Pirate Day’. This year she’s celebrating her 60th birthday and is marking the occasion by throwing herself a birthday party… that’s how she rolls. I’ve created this card just for her with the ever-beautiful ‘Couture’ collection, added some lush Petaloo blooms and blinged it up with a smidge of rhinestone chain. Oh la la!"~Nichola
