"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

It's in the Mail! #1

95% of the cards I make must go in the mail, so, that's the name of my new series - It's in the Mail!  I usually don't make cards that can't be mailed - although I enjoy looking at ideas on line.  I don't have a lot of extra money to spend on cards that will sit in my studio because they're too thick to mail.

Sometimes I find it just as challenging trying to reproduce a card I see as coming up with my own ideas. I saw this card and really liked it - then I added my own twist, of course.  Here is the first one and I reproduced it just like the original design by Chiaki Haverstick:

This is the card I made out of the same die, embossing folder, Tea for Two paper (printed from SU's My Digital Studio), and cardstock colors (Very Vanilla and Pacific Point):

As you can see, my sentiment is a bit crooked!

Be aware that if you decide to use this paper - some of the flowers are upside down!  Also, Pay attention to the print around the circles.
