I had a bit of fun today making a card for our dear friends' little one's first birthday. This card is so me, I love pinks and browns, and anything pretty and girly. After this one, I had a little efficiency fit and made another eight baby cards.. I don't know why really, I don't know anyone who is having a baby, just because the stamps were cute and begging to be played with I suppose. I will share those with you in the coming days;)
I did a little heat embossing on the stamps to give them a little sparkle, it doesn't show up very well in the pics, but is really pretty.
How do you make cards? Do you make them just for fun or with a specific destination in mind? I have perhaps 100 or more handmade cards sitting in my craft room in cello bags... I am generally a "just becauser", then when I need a card, I tend to not be able to find one in my HUGE stash, and make one just for the occassion anyway... a little strange, but when the creativity is flowing, I just love creating for enjoyment.
Smiles :) enjoy your day wherever it takes you.
