Photo Cards

Ah, flowers! I'm obsessed with them. Growing, tending, cutting, arranging, all of it.

I walked around our yard this evening and took some pictures. I picked some flowers. And I took a few more pictures...










And then I printed some of those pictures out. I mounted them on white cardstock, added a few photo corners, and made sets of photo cards...






I am thrilled with how they turned out, and I hope it inspires you to try it out for yourself.

I sense a special edition card kit coming out soon...

Have a super Friday!

Awesome idea!! I don't have flowers in my yard, but I do take photos of flowers when I can, so this would be great!

Those cards are just wonderful! I have photo corners that I don't want to use for my scrapbook. Now, I know exactly what to do with them! Thanks! =]
