There are so many talented people making beautiful cards these days! I’ve often thought I’d like to try it.
The process appeals to me because it’s a mini version of making a scrapbook. You use a lot of the same tools and supplies but you are finished much sooner. I know I wouldn’t have the stick-to-it-ive-ness to complete a large scrapbook.
As I’ve mentioned to Carol, I am not good at working on a weeks-long project. With most of the arts that I’ve learned, I try to do small projects otherwise they tend to languish in an unfinished state. Guess I like the old instant gratification! For example, if I were quilting – it would be placemats – not a queen-sized quilt! When making a card, I can play with all of the pretty papers, stickers, ribbons, and rubber stamps – and still have a finished project fairly quickly.
Last week, as Valentine’s Day was approaching, I planned to make a few Valentines – but time ran out.
Made only one . . . for my Valentine . . . of 37 years . . .
I was in kindergarten when I married don’t cha know. 😉
It turned out OK, for a beginner. You can click on the photo to make it larger.
It was fun and actually reminded me of my earliest school years, when our class would spend an afternoon every week making little “art” projects with colorful construction paper, glue, and our blunt edged scissors.
Now if you were to ask me what I liked best about making this card, I’d have to say . . .
“He liked it!” 🙂
