Here are a couple of easy cards that a beginner can make. I used a couple different embossing folders and stamped a couple of purple pansies. Add a little designer paper and you have a couple of cards.
I made the one with the sentiment, “Sending hugs” to my brother who was in a bad accident and will be needing a lot of recovery time. Right now all he has to look at in the hospital is four walls so I thought he could glance over at the card every now and then and know that he is loved.
