We’ve reached a new level of my greeting card making. We’ve gotten to the point that I am taking requests from people about making the greeting cards. Recently I made three different sets of greeting cards based on very few facts that people gave me. It was actually a lot of fun to take the basics and make something cool with it. Actually, I equivocate it a lot to one of those really fun bars that you go into and you say I want something made with gin and ginger and that tastes refreshing – ready go? (That’s my usual. Any other gin drinkers out there?) Check out some of my creations this past week:
The Request: Greeting cards that are red, black, and white
favorite part: the way the flower compliments the cards
the challenge: choosing the right shade of red – some paper I had was too Christmasy, some was too burgundy, some was almost maroon
The Request: Thank You cards with hearts on them
favorite part: I really love that heart paper.
the challenge: poking the fasteners through the paper without hurting myself
The Request: Turquoise and lime green cards
favorite part: the black photo mounting corners
the challenge: figuring out how to make a classy lime green and turquoise card
Fun, right? What kind of cards would you ask for?
