Hi Fleur here, this week is cards week on the blog. I love making handmade cards and I know most of my friends and family appreciate receiving them too. I created two cards for someone feeling under the weather or just someone who needs a hug.

For my first card I used the new Crate Paper Pier collection and turned one of the chipboard frames into a kleenex box. I popped it up on foam tape and added a white paper bag behind it to look like kleenex.
I created a hexagon border along the bottom. The hexagons on the 6 x 6 paper pad were almost perfect to use with the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Hexagon 25.


I added some twine and sequins to finish off the card.

For my second card I wanted a more general card and what better than a hug to cheer someone up?
I really love the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Heart 25, it's so versatile and can be used for any occasion.
I used another of the chipboard frames to add my stamped sentiment. For the hug I covered some foam letter stickers with sequins.
These cards are sure to make someone feel better.
Thanks for stopping by.
