As a fellow paper crafter and card maker, I know firsthand how rewarding and fulfilling this hobby can be. But did you know that cardmaking can also have benefits that go beyond just the joy of creating something beautiful?

For many of us, cardmaking is a form of self-expression and creativity that allows us to tap into our innermost thoughts and feelings. When we create a card for someone, we're not just putting together a pretty design - we're also putting a little piece of ourselves into that card. Whether it's through the choice of colors, the style of the design, or the message we write inside, we're communicating something personal and meaningful to those who receive these creations.

In this way, cardmaking can be a form of therapy and healing. It allows us to express our emotions in a healthy and productive way, and to connect with others on a deeper level. When we give a card to someone, we're not just giving them a physical object - we're also giving them a piece of our heart often referred to as works of our he{art}.

Cardmaking can also be a form of mindfulness. When we sit down to create a card, we're focusing our attention on the task and let go of distractions and worries. We're immersing ourselves in the moment and allowing our creative energy to flow. This process can be so calming and rejuvenating and can help us feel more grounded and centered.

Finally, cardmaking can be a way to connect with our spirituality and faith. Whether we're creating cards for religious holidays or simply incorporating imagery and sentiments that are meaningful to us, cardmaking can be a form of prayer and devotion. As I am creating a card for a specific person, I will begin with a prayer for him or her.  This craft allows us to express our gratitude, love, and reverence in a tangible and meaningful way.

So, as you continue to explore the wonderful world of cardmaking, remember that there are emotional and spiritual benefits to this hobby that go far beyond the stamps, ink, and paper. 

Now that you've read this post, leave a comment below and let me know what cardmaking has done for you or means to you.

Keep creating and sharing your beautiful cards with others, and know that you are also enriching your own life in the process.


Stampin' Up! Irresistible Blooms Makes Truly Irresistible Cards!

Irresistible-blooms-square-card-1The Stampin' Up! Irresistible Blooms Bundle [161150] and coordinating Hello, Irresistible 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper [161139] truly live up to the name!  This square-shaped card was created on my Facebook/ YouTube Live this week.

The floral images in this stamp set are perfect for embossing on colored card stock and the emboss-resist technique.  Honestly, I haven't been as excited about a new floral stamp set in a long time!

Along with beautiful images, the beautifully scripted sentiments add a touch of class to handmade cards and the stand-alone dies make beautiful accents.
