Cardmaking is something I go through phases with. If I get some inspiration I just have to go with it otherwise it could end up being a month or so before it happens again!
I’ve been thinking for a while that I need to start making cards again because lately I’ve been buying cards instead of making them. Shock horror I know!! I have a crazy amount of craft supplies in my craft room and yet I go to the nearest shop and buy a standard hallmark card instead! Shame on me…
So, after being asked to make a card for somebody this week, I decided to try and get the inspiration back that I’ve been lacking so much lately.
So I found a couple of sentiments I wanted to use and then sorted through my paper stash to see what I could pair with them. After much deliberation I produced this, which is a fairly simple card but I was pleased with the result:
So once I got the first card done, I decided that as I already had my boxes and bags of supplies scattered around me (much to the annoyance of my other half!), I may as well try and do another one to see if I could get my creativity flowing.
Granted, this mermaid card took me nearly two hours to make, but much of that time was spent wondering what the hell to make 😂
So once that was done I moved on to the next card:
I think the main thing I’ve realised this week is just how much I love papercraft and I reeeeeeeeeally need to spend more time on it.
Maybe that can be my resolution for July.
Watch this space ✌🏼 xxx
