Sweet Cherries Card

No Gravatar

Today’s featured card is just a sweet little note card that can be used for any occasion.  If my Grandma Jay were still alive, this is the kind of “any day” card I would send her.  I have a lifetime collection of letters and cards we exchanged over the years and it was bittersweet when I received the box of handmade cards I’d mailed her.  I’m happy she saved them, but never imagined they would come back to me.  Grandma was very special to me, and I miss her.  Recently I found a card I’d written in 2004 that I never sent her; another card and stamped envelope I had started; and a shrinky dink card charm I made that said “I (heart) Gramma Jay.”

This card used the really fun geometric Elemental paper from Close to My Heart; some coordinating ribbon, stamps, red buttons and I cut out the stamped area on my Cricut with my Art Philosophy cartridge.  I love how it cut perfect slots for the ribbon to pass through.
