I needed to send out two cards with RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness for craft happy mail) this month. This is the first one; they’re both going to Canada. I embossed my Stampin’ Up Tangerine Tango cardstock card base with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and added “Hello” patterned paper from a UK magazine on top. On the right-hand side of the card, a little embossed bird is visiting his butterfly friends. I’m not sure which embossing folder he came from, but he’s cute! The yellow butterfly is from Tim Coffey and K & Co, and the smaller butterfly is a random punched piece.

Recycled card bits made new.
Sometimes things are just too pretty or useful to throw away. (Yes, I have a Depression-era mind-set.) Here I used part of a printed card that had made its way to me into a little hello card, complete with a new tag, wood and resin pieces, two types of patterned paper (one being embossed and glittered), Stampin’ Up Lucky Limeade ribbon, and translucent, glow-in-the-dark Nuvo Drops.
