On to another one of my handmade adventures… cards. I have made several since February, and with each one I seem to be getting a little better. I haven’t used any “official” card making techniques, nor have I searched for any online. I just pick out some papers and embellishments at the craft store, then stick them in a box and go through when I am looking for something to work with.
My latest project was for a Free Card Swap for the Card_Crafts Yahoo Group. I received a beautiful card from Kathy O in NY.
This is a very lovely card with a lot of detail, and I was very worried I would not be able to match the beauty or the craftsmanship. I love butterflies and this was a perfect card for me.
So, yesterday, I finished the card I was working on and I put it in the mail.
I think it turned out very nice. I got the idea from a book called 175 Fresh Card Ideas by Kimber McGray. It is from the top right card on the book cover below. I bought this book at Hobby Lobby and it has a lot of great ideas in it. I highly recommend it.
So, I hope Kathy likes the card I am sending her as much as I like the one she sent to me.
Check back again tomorrow to see what all I may have come up with.
