Making Cards and Mailings

Made a few Valentine cards to send to friends + other mailings, and a package for a swap.  I’m really loving the Silhouette Portrait I received in a giveaway a year and a half ago.  I’m surprised I’ve never really used it much for making cards.  Actually, I haven’t used it as much as I’d like to.  This year, I will tackle that goal.  I’ve got a few ideas brewing.  In the photo below, I added a little watercolor to the die cut envelope.  Watercoloring is something I’ve tried my hands at here and there too with hopes to do more of it this year.


This was the most mail I’ve sent out in my life in one day.  There were 8 items total!  It feels great to give.
