I've been wanting to get into card crafting, but it's something that takes time, patience, and lots of supplies. The end result is very rewarding though. Not only can I create something that I am proud of, but a handmade card is much more heartfelt than a store bought one. My brother turns 31 this weekend. I decided to make him a card and mail it, since I won't see him until Memorial Day weekend (when I can give him a real gift).
My favorite part is the poem on the inner envelope, and the stamped '31' on the back that pokes through as you pull out the card.
Happy Birthday Jerry.
