about a month ago i was asked if i could prepare and demonstrate some cards for a group of ladies. they want to have semi-formal evenings where they can relax, learn something new and not spend a lot of money. an environment where they can invite friends, family or neighbors to join them. with Christmas approaching, they thought it might be nice to start out with some cardmaking.
i keep laughing, because although i'm not really a cardmaker, i tend to be making a lot of these lately! truthfully it was cardmaking that got me started into scrapbooking as i have been.
anyways it was a lot of fun to prepare. their challenge was to create 3 cards that would cost no more than $5. in this instance, my time was totally volunteer and not paid.
as with any project i have a million ideas floating around in my head. honestly it is a nice problem to have....it's just tough to pick one idea and go with it! after a few weeks of thought and ideas....i had a sufficient amount of caffeine and sleep....narrowed it down to a few design ideas and went shopping!
Making Memories, Prima, Maya Road, Imaginisce stamp and glimmer mist. the edge punch is Martha Stewart lace.
i cut the snowflakes out on my cricut. then glimmer misted them too.
