Vintage Seed Packet

Is there anything more charming than the beautiful artwork on vintage seed packets?I think not!!! I searched for printable seed packets and saved them to my computer, this one is printed on textured card stock.{divine I tell you} I just know I will be using these several times this spring! I created a pocket with my sewing machine and filled a glassine envelope {Stampin'Up! or Martha Stewart} with flower seeds to send along with the card.Isn't that fun?

Crumpled paper flowers and a tattered piece of burlap give me the tactile effect I love on cards, I look at it this way: If I'm going to spend time creating a one of a kind card, I want the recipient to really stop and take it all in. I know when I see something pretty I have to touch it too! {even when I'm not supposed to} Hee hee

You probably all have a container of beads, and sequins like mine, a mess of sparkly bits and baubles that never see the light of day! Even if I used them On every single creation I would have enough pearl beads to last for 25 years! But they are so pretty, I will keep them for that long ..............or longer!

whatever your day brings, make it beautiful! Happy creating~
