My first efforts from the papercraft society kit I bought in the January sales. The stitching dies are just part of the kit, which was great value, so even though I don’t need it feel v happy at the early successes.
Hand drawn cards, truly hand made
Always make multiples
If you are going to make a card make multiples. It makes sense even if you give away the spares. Most time is spent gathering supplies and planning layouts rather than the assembly, so three takes hardly any more time than one.
Here I used some ancient craftwork cards antiqued papers matted on some papermania textured cardstock (bought in a handy A5 colour block). I cut the sentiment – dovecraft– and Sheena botanicals flowers from the mat before sticking it on the card base. Only the edge of the mat shows and the paper is good quality – plus this keeps the impact subtle, just what I want for a sympathy card. Two cards were embellished with Candi buttons, but not sure if that makes them too fussy.
10 cards from a hobby craft bargain, was it worth £5?
Respect for those you tubers, I did my 10 cards one kit in two sections- no editing as I used an old format to film and the lighting will be improved for next time…above the unboxing
below the reveal
10 cards to reduce the stockpile- a bit
I must i must decrease the stockpile and here are 10 cards to make a start
i have already used the craftwork cards antiqued set and accessories quite a bit but these are very generous kits
Three cards on craft card blanks .
two use tags from the kit and one layered die cuts . I die cut the sentiment twice to make a drop shadow
Scan n cut put to use here here with the octagon layout and a free svg of some doodles for contrast
tip for next time, octagons don’t tessellate or mosaic togetherlike hexagons would, but here studding with the Candi worked out fine
And using up my die cut flowers …
ten simple cards done in one afternoon but there are still 21 untouched pages of paper in the kit. So much paper left to play with.
