"Made With Love" Event: Cards by Jessica Review and Giveaway Ends 4/3

~This post is part of the handmade "Made With Love" event. All giveaways run from March 25th-April 3rd. View all 17 sponsors for this event HERE~


About the Designer...
Hi!  I'm Jessica, and I'm so excited to share my cards with you!  I live in the Indianapolis area and taught kindergarten for 7 1/2 years before becoming a full time mom to my sweet baby girl.  I've been a scrapbooker since college, and I began making cards just for fun shortly after that.  When I had quickly created more cards then I could possibly send to my own friends and family,  my husband suggested that I try to sell them... and here I am!  I do most of my business at craft fairs, but I'm just starting to get things going through Facebook and my blog.  I love being able to use my creativity to make something beautiful for others to share with their loved ones.  Even with all the technology available to us today, I still think that a card with a handwritten note means the world!  I strive to make unique and affordable cards that capture many of life's special moments.  

Review... 
Cards are a great way to show someone that you care. Make it a handmade card and you might brighten someone's whole day! Cards by Jessica is a fantastic source for beautiful, unique and very creative cards for every holiday, event, and occasion. Jessica sent me 2 cards to review!


Both cards were made using high quality white cards, and included white envelopes. The insides are blank so you can customize the inside yourself. The "Thank You" card is so simple, yet professionally made and classy. So beautiful! The "Happy Easter" card is so fun and vibrant! This card has so much character with all the details it has. I really like the egg in the middle with the little flower on it. It's super cute! With both cards, I love the many layers of materials used. Various colored and printed card stocks, papers, and textures give each card a lot of definition and dimension. 

Jessica has A LOT of photos of her work on her Facebook page, as well as on her blog where she recently posted more examples of her Easter cards. She even sells Gift Bags and Tags too! Below are even more beautiful examples of Jessica's creative talent.

I would love to see Jessica add a stamp or logo on the back of each card that includes her website. I think it would bring her a lot of credit that she most definitely deserves. :) Overall, I'm very impressed with Cards by Jessica and at only $2 a card or any 3 for $5, you can't beat it!
