One of my other craft passions is card making. I remember when I was about 18 I received a handmade card from the guy I was dating at the time and loved the fact that he had put in the time and effort into MAKING me a card. That’s pretty awesome for a young guy to do actually! Needless to say, I loved the way it made me feel to be given something beautiful that was made just for me! I guess I want the people I love to feel the same way, which is part of the reason why I craft now.
I started card making about two and a half years ago as a way to work through some not so easy things that were happening in my life at the time and haven’t looked back since.
This is one I’ve made recently that’s going to a little girl that has a birthday is coming up. It’s simple and sweet and best of all pink and sparkly!
I used a Forever Friends stamp for the bear, my colouring in was done with ProMarkers and some glitter for the balloon. The pink frame around him is made with a Cuttlebug die (I don’t remember what it’s called, sorry), the inside edge of the frame is glittered and the outside edges are finished off with super thin velvet ribbon held on with double sided tape. I think it’s so cute, I’m tempted to keep it!
