simple, handmade postcards

August 16, 2013

The opportunity to embark on a trip, let alone a 8-day one,  without the little ones was fortunate one, with a lot of excitement and a lot of freedom!  That being said, I always miss them even after one night away.   So not seeing them for over a week???  Yikes!

Of course there were a couple of phone calls, and FaceTime.  However, before the trip I thought of using the old-fashioned way of letting the babies know Mommy and Daddy were thinking of them too.  And since Moira is at an age when getting mail is fun, I thought she would especially like them…postcards.



These fun little handmade cards could be done with little needed in the way of supplies.  For an original postcard, first get some heavy scrapbook paper.  I actually felt every piece of patterned paper I had to make sure it was sturdy enough to endure the trip over the pond.


A post card can actually be anywhere from 3 1/2 x5 inches to 4 1/4 x 6 inches. I made it easy and cut mine to 4×6.


I used washi on the back to separate the address from note sides and hand drew, doodled, sketched everything else.


It was a nice little opportunity to practice hand lettering, which I have always been fascinated by and have wanted to “learn”.  Love the handmade touch too…
