|Butterflies and flowers dominate--perfect for Spring!|
Sadly, I must confess that I am horrible at remembering to send cards even remotely on time. (A skill both my Grandma and Mom have mastered.) I always have the best of intentions, but they don't don't seem to make it to the mailbox.
I do really enjoy making cards--which you would think would help me to be better at sending them out! At my first craft fair back in November I sold a (surprising) number of my handmade cards, so I've been putting a few together for the upcoming fair this weekend (I'd love tips, comments, personal experiences, etc). I thought that I would share some of these creations today.
I used high quality cardstock for these cards. I designed a simple block with all of my information for the backs--which was something I found recommended on various sites to help promote yourself. I have a Sizzix Sidekick which I love and a stash full of great papers. I have a few of these awesome paper stacks that are adhesive on the backs so after I cut all I have to do is stick them on--these are really great for some of the die cuts with small pieces that can be difficult to glue. They can be a bit pricier, but they are worth it.
|I think that this might be my favorite one of the bunch.|
|I love playing with the same die cuts and similar papers--|
the finished effect is quite interesting.
|This one is just plain fun. There are quite a few different|
papers glued to the background to make this one work.
|A much simpler, and less busy, version of the one about it.|
