Hi all, I'm just flying though the website to show you the first batch of cards I made for the Carrot festival, because my daughter has a birthday today...and I am just exhausted of making 46 cards ( yes, that's correct, 46 full size cards, lo and behold!) I promise tomorrow a plum tart recipe, that won our hearts over the weekend! :-) Of course I'm making Ellie a cake, what kind of question is that! :-) Soooo, just wait and see ;-) The party is going to be next Sunday, 30th :-) If you want to check out the previous and next batches of cards, try here:
2nd part, 3rd part, 4th part, 5th part, 6th part, 7th part and the last 8th part.
Here is the first card:
1. A flower pot card- Everything is handmade on it, except the buttons :-) I wanted to try my new flower puncher and it was great!
I don't like that card very much though...I kind of think it didn't do me good to stick to the instructions. I was following by the book this website's explanation and it I felt I was holding back somehow. It's not bad, but it could have been better I think.
This is how the card pops up:
2. This is very nice earth-y combination of colors, I love it! Although I was little shy with the design I think.
This is the inside, it doesn't show up on the pictures very well, but I used different techniques to make the edges on the handcrafted paper:
Here is a close up on the bird I drew :-)
3. This is the 3rd card I made and my favorite from the set. I apologize for the pictures quality.
The orange card-stock is just a plain regular kind. I used the Score Pal to make the lines, then folded it, used a nail file to make the appearance more "raw" and then used ink on top of that. And voila..."handmade" paper ;-)
The sign "Love.." didn't come out well in the pictures for some reason it looks unreadable, but on the real card is not like that, it just have a shade of gold behind the black ink.
And finally, the inside of the card:
This is for today, I'll show you the other ones tomorrow :-) Remember, I have 46 so far ;-) Ta-ta for now! :-)
