Today I am sharing a number of cards that I have made for my own personal use as of late. May is a busy month of gifting for me personalizing. This post has a lot of pictures. I hope you find one card that you like and perhaps I will inspire you.

Lately, I have been using a technique that I call "cluster cards." I group a number of embellishments in the center of the card. Sometimes I place the cluster off to the side or in a lower corner. This technique allows for me to be free with my design, as well as to personalize it for the recipient. I try to use only what I have on hand. These are fun and easy to make. Give it a try.

This birthday card is a "spinner card." The car moves up and down the length of the card. I'm not so sure that we want the car to spin--although that may be a reflection of real life!!
