Creative cards perfect for Someone Special!
The next time you're lost for a very special card making idea (maybe you need a fancy homemade Wedding card, a special Anniversary card or a milestone Birthday cardmaking idea)... try looking through your charms and jewelry supplies or browse through a bead supply store for inspiration.
Beaded cards make an elegant addition to a Wedding/Anniversary/Birthday gift or a thoughtful way to give money. They can also be a gift all on their own, housing a special message and a whole lot of love.
