I'm trying to make more Birthday cards because I give out so many of them. I love giving out birthday cards - there's that special joy I get when the recipient appreciates the card. Perhaps it's also a small way of bringing cheer to a friend when you hand them a handmade card. So, anyway... here's a really fast and easy card I made yesterday.
I kept the layout really simple. The only extra bit I did was make a flower from the super beautiful Japanese ribbon my sister bought.
I have a question for the cardmakers out there who might read this blog entry of mine. Do you see the cards you would like to make in your head before you do anything? Hmm... cos I do. I see colours and images all the time in my head which could be inspired by a stamp or patterned paper which catches my eye, or even billboards and magazine layouts, etc. The only sad thing is, I may not always achieve on paper what I visualise in my head...LOL! Have a great day!!
