Hand made cards are always what I prefer...is it easier to pick up a card from the grocery store...yes, but it will mean a million times more if it's handmade!
Craft Obsession has wonderful handmade cards as well as card sketches which are great if you're having a creative lapse. I love how simple this card is but it sure is lovely!
The Frugal Crafter has a great tutorial on how to make your own bakers twine because for some reason it's kind of pricey. But plain white string is a lot cheaper and you can customize it into any color you'd like!
Branch out and be crafty!!
