Card sets to make for gifts

Getting and giving handmade cards is something I've done since I was little. Not everyone has the time (and there are some beautiful cards out there), but with nice paper and pre-made card & envelope sets, it won't take as long as you might think. This morning, I pulled out the supplies and spread everything on the kitchen table (a.k.a. the craft nook until I win the lottery). 

Supplies: 
  • small paper cutter
  • card stock (or pre-made blank cards & envelopes)
  • scissors
  • coloured and textured paper
  • tape runner (a glue stick works but once you go tape runner, it's hard to go back)
  • glitter gel pen
  • ribbon
  • hole punch

I picked up this pad on sale at Michael's. 



Mix patterns and colours; you can't really go wrong. 


Here's what I ended up with.....




I use a signature on the back. Still haven't found the 'one'. A custom stamp would be nice (one day). 




Include 3 envelopes, tie with a bit of ribbon, add a tag and you've got a gift!


How about you? Have you ever tried to make your own cards? How'd they turn out?
