I love to make cards during the holidays and for gifts. When you make cards yourself you can personalize them and make them look exactly as you want. Here are a few tutorials for creating your own cards and envelopes. These idea are perfect for personalized Mothers Day cards.

  1. Love handmade cards!

    That celery art project is awesome - I've done that with my little preschoolers for a few years now - it's so sweet!

  2. I love handmade cards too. Especially those that use clever ways of stamping with food items!

  3. Great idea for a feature! I love those button envelopes. I like to make just about any card that involves using buttons, ribbons, and/or stamps.

  4. Wow, that celery idea is fantastic! How cool, I love it! Actually, all of these cards are adorable. So cute, thanks for sharing!

  5. I love making cards for any occasion, but the design process is very time consuming. As an aside, I brought a few to the post office to mail since I was out of stamps and the woman there complained to me about 'these homemade cards' and how they jam up their machines b/c of the bulkiness of them. Some of them I've had to mail out in padded envelopes b/c of the brads or whatever.

  6. I love handmade cards too :)
    The roseprint made with celery sticks is amazing! Off to check it out!!
    have a great week,

  7. Awesome ideas! Love the celery stamping idea. The texture is so neat. Now that gives me other ideas for what to use as a stamp!

  8. That celery print is ingenious!!
