Create Your Own Handmade Cards

Nothing is better than getting a handmade card in the mail made with love.  I put together three simple cards with embellished vellum envelopes that are sure to brighten up your loved
ones day!

How To: Create 3 card out of white cardstock, each measuring 4"x6". Trim three patterned papers and adhere to card faces. Place each card inside a glassine envelope.  Next, decorate each envelope using a transparent photo overlay.  Next, add a die cut/acetate ephemera to the front of each glassine bag.  Tip: for the Hello bag, I trimmed out the phrase from patterned paper to create my title.  Next, add pieces of ephemera, stickers and washi tape to embellish each envelope.  Finally, to finish off each embellished envelope, string suede tassels onto gold string and tie around each envelope.
