Today I made a card for my Papaw Jim’s birthday.  I like making cards (and envelopes) for people – it’s kind of the same meditative feeling I get with one of those intricate coloring books, but I have an actual use for it when I’m done.

  
After I troll around Pinterest or Etsy and find an image I like for the birthday person, I size it to fit a quarter-fold card and print it out.  Then I use my trusty light box to transfer it to some card stock.  Just white paper and a sharpie here – nothing fancy!

  
Today I was listening to a podcast while tracing.  Notes exploded onto the page! 😁

  
Work in progress.

  
And done!  

I love it, and I hope Papaw does too. 🎉
