Simple Handmade Cards

This paper from a tablet didn’t seem to need anything else on the cover; the left page on the inside has a brown stamped coffee cup and I included a bookmark to match.

The right edge of the front has been roughly cut around the flower outlines. It would’ve added some color if I had affixed about a 2″ yellow edge on the inside, which would showcase the flowers a little better.

Here’s an example of an idea that just didn’t work out. This strip of pansy printed vellum looked good inside this card – until the fixative came loose. I used a glue stick and it just wasn’t permanent. Perhaps the peel-off double sided tape or glue dots would’ve been better. And it should’ve been narrower. This page is too cluttered and not enough room to write a message.

This stamped edge would be another good one to cut around the right side.
