Hand designed cards


These were the first set of cards that I designed. I made each one different and gave them as a set. Made in one day, it was a mix of embossing, stamping, cardstock punching, layering, gluing, and brad snipping! I can't tell you how much fun I had making these. I have been thinking of perhaps expanding my online jewelry shop to include card sets, little fleece critters/pins and other crafty items. Let me know what you think and if you would like to see something like these cards there. Of course this would be some day when I have more time to create some bulk items and more time to put the additional shop jazz up online. I don't know how long that would be with my current animation project, but I would still like to hear your thoughts. And who knows, sometimes the old multi tasking kicks in or sometimes when one works on a project for so long it can be a nice change of scenery to temporarily work on another. This image is only one row of a larger picture, I had to crop the original size to fit on the blog properly. To see the whole photo of all the cards Click HERE!

Lovely! I think the Asian-themed one is my favorite (although it was really hard to pick one)!

I only wish the photo of the cards were a little nicer quality for you, the colors of the envelopes and cards actually match but it's hard to tell in the picture. If I do put them up on my site to sell, I'll have to pull out my higher quality camera! It's been easier not too since the higher quality camera requires hooking up to my computer with a USB and importing and all that jazz, while the one I have been using doesn't. If I do move forward though, at that point it would be worth the little extra work : ) In the mean time my apologies for the low quality!
