Gifting love through cards

Amber and Rebecka Ens of Fraser Lake have made something special for lovers this Valentines.

Amber and Rebecka Ens are selling their homemade greeting cards at the Rosebowl and Deoartment store in Vanderhoof.

Valentines Day is around the corner and lovers are finding the most unique and creative ways to say I love you.

Fort Fraser girls Rebecka Ens 19, and Amber Ens 17, feel what better way to express your love than with a homemade card.

“They are so cute and fun to make,” Amber said with a humbling smile.

The two girls have continued their creative family tradition of making I-love-you greeting cards and have started selling them at the Rosebowl and Department store in Vanderhoof. They come in many styles – thank you, get well and happy Valentines Day to name a few. Some of them have jewels while others are raised, layered or stamped making each card unique but, all of them made with love.

“All the money we make will probably go back into the cards to get more supplies to be able to [share more of our creations],” Rebecka said.

The two entrepreneurs started selling their homemade works-of-art so others could share in their inspiration. They use a variety of supplies from Stampin’up and Michaels. “Our grandma [made homemade cards] so we buy supplies but also got some handed down to us,” Rebecka said.

The two started making cards when they where young but only started selling them last year. This will be the first valentines their crafty pieces will be up for grabs and at $4 a card, they are quite affordable, Rebecka said.
