Card Art

I am a big fan of picture frames. I have a lot of them. I always enjoy keeping my eyes open for a new one when out and about. Pictures, in my humble opinion are one of the cheapest and most meaningful decorations one can have in their home. That being said, every once in awhile I like to mix it up and frame things other than pictures. The white frame above was found at my fave thrift store for $1. It is a heavy thing, it must be made from cast iron. I love the swirly, intricate pattern that it has cast into it. Very shabby and "nesty" (I know that isn't a word). I found these really cute blue note cards with a nest on them and thought they would look cute framed. The silver "grid" frame was on clearance at Target for $2. It's a pretty good size, I think it's a 5x7. I got a really cute birthday card this year from my Momma, part of which had the cute vase with flowers that you see above. I cut it out of the card and framed it, I think it looks great for spring/summer decorating. It looks right at home with my first project I made in HS ceramics and the framed picture my oldest colored awhile back, I wrote more about framing/displaying kids art here .

Start looking at cards for frugal frame worthy options. It's a fun way to add to your collection without breaking the bank. Click "Linky Parties I Love" on the right to see what parties I'll be linking up with.


  1. The card and the ceramics bowl do look as if they belong together - what a beautiful combo especially with the orange of the fish artwork...

  2. very pretty. Great Idea!

  3. I'm totally with you on the frames... I have them everywhere as well and love them. I love all the things you framed. How fun to be able to change the look of a room with just a switch in a frame :)

  4. Yes, I'm obsessed with frames also. Funny, I always buy frames and then look for something to put in them. I agree, framing cards and postcards is so much fun. I had a friend send me a card last summer with a little 3-D vignette of beach things. I loved it so much, I framed it and it makes me smile everyday.

  5. I would have never thought to frame cards, what a wonderful idea!
