One of my favorite parts about creating cards is the ability to make them for my family. It is so much more exciting to craft a card perfectly for a loved one than trying to find something commercialized at Hallmark.
My youngest sister recently celebrated her birthday and I wanted to make her a card that was cheery and bright. As you can see, creating the envelope was just as fun!
For the card, I used the Crystal Blue patterned paper from the Twitterpatted Paper Packet. I also used Honey as my embellished cardstock. I love these two colors together - they pop right off the page! The Desert Sand and Bamboo ink pads helped me tone down the bright colors, as well.
