1. Use die cut flowers and stickers

To make the card look interesting, try using different alphabets for each of the words. Here happy got the small stickers, mothers got bold alphas that I stitched over and I had wrote the word day

I used small stickers, floral cut outs, and alphabet thickers- all stuff left over from my scrapbooking kits to make these cards. Cards are such a small size, it’s a great way to use those paper scraps and bits.

3. Use Wood veneers patterned papers:

I love the wood veneers I added to these cards, they contrast so nicely against the shimmery alphabets. I mixed and matched different patterns and designs of paper and had so much fun!

My favorite card/tag! Add a huge felt bow or ribbon bow and use bright contrasting colors to make it pop! Sure to make someone smile.

5. Add pearls to make a special card

Check out my Rolled Flowers tutorial

Make easy flowers with some patterned paper, by just spiral cutting the paper and rolling it into layers with some adhesive. Add a pearl in the center of each.
