One of my New Year’s resolutions was to start writing cards and letters to my far-flung friends instead of relying on e-mail and Facebook. I had a vague plan to write a letter to a different friend each month, and maybe include some handmade notecards to encourage them to write back (or write to someone else!) I’ve failed to carry through so far, but I finally made myself some notecards… now I just have to send them!
The nudge to actually start comes from the Silhouette Plus forum, which has been a great resource as I start using my Silhouette machine more. The forum includes monthly challenges. This month’s card challenge was to make a card using recycled material, so I made these cards using bits of newspaper, a map and an Old Navy ad. I think I like the map the best, though as a journalist, I should favor the newspaper version!
