I have always had good intentions to make homemade cards. Over the years, I’ve accumulated a variety of cardstock, scrapbook paper and cards for parties and other crafting endeavors. So, why didn’t I make my cards? Mostly laziness and insecurity that my cards wouldn’t be as good as a store-bought.
When I read this great post with six easy designs for homemade cards at His and Hers, it was like the lightbulb went on. I can do this, I thought to myself.

So for Mother’s Day, I made some cards for the grandmas. They were seriously quick and simple and they turned out really cute (if I do say so myself).
I had come across this sentiment on Pinterest a while ago and it tickled my funny bone. And it’s perfect for cards from Henry, since he’s clearly the favorite of all. Next time, I’ll add a layer of scrapbook paper to the full card, but I’m still happy with how it turned out. And grandmas liked it, too.
So, this is just a simple encouragement to try new craft. Maybe you’ll find that it’s actually kind of fun to go outside your crafting comfort zone.
