In the Designer's Words: "I love to create handmade flowers and I needed a surface to showcase my blooms on. What better way than a trio of handmade cards to share with loved ones. I used a variety of Sizzix dies for my flowers and background pieces, coloring them with a variety of inks, paints, and mediums. Lots of stencil and stamping created the base of each card front. These cards probably would not do well in the regular mail. I plan on hand delivering mine."
Handmade cards just say so much more than store-bought sentiments. Learning how to make paper crafts and how to make cards allows you to transform simple card-giving into a meaningful moment. Use DIY cards like these  Mixed Media Flowers Cards to cheer up your friends and family. This card is made out of faux flowers, paper products, and more. Perfect for spring, this card could easily be transformed into an Easter greeting or a new baby card. If you’re lacking an occasion, you can always make these cuties “just because”, as well.
