Have you ever gotten a card and thought it was just too pretty to throw away or to put in a keepsake box? That happens to me all the time! So, I’ve been collecting cards that I think go with my decor!

This cute feather card said “Thank You”. I knew that it would look great in my foyer vignette. So, I ripped a piece of the back of the card off and glued it to the little thank you window and wrote “Welcome”. Then I popped it in a frame and …

  1. Your card art is really cool!! I thought I was the only one who did card art. ,I used to use the card line that Hallmark put out called impressions and I have a cuple from artist who’s designs were put on cards. I love your idea.!! Love yours !!
    Be blessed

  2. Morning Yvonne,
    That is a pretty card and looks so nice, and it was great you could change out the Thank you for the welcome, which really made it perfect.
    I have done that for years too, sometimes I don’t even put them in a frame, just stand them in the vignette..
    A very lovely yet inexpensive way to make art for your home.

    Blessings, Nellie

  3. Love it Yvonne….When I was very young and there was very little money for decorating…..I would frame my favorite cards…had an entire gallery of them….I still to this day save my special cards, but got away from framing…need to get back to that again..thanks for bringing me back to memory lane….the card of feathers looks beautiful in your vignette!

  4. Yvonne,

    Very cute idea! I have used cards, as well as photos on card stock, to make small pieces to display. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Yvonne this is so simple but brilliant! I actually save my cards but never quite know what to do with them. Now I know. 🙂 Hope you have a restful and fun holiday weekend!

  7. Wonderful idea Yvonne! My mother has collected cards for years!!! I’ll have to share this with her:) Thanks for the tip!

  8. Yes, Yvonne, I often use greeting cards to decorate with. As a matter of fact I have three pictures in my kitchen that are actually cards that I framed. They have coffee cups and tea pots on them and matched the decor in my kitchen. I love ’em. I just picked up a packet of cards at Michael’s in their “$1.50” bins and framed one with an anchor for my summer decor. Don’t miss a good thing.
