Last night, it was so quiet in my house. These moments can be few and far between at times, so I latched onto and sat down to create a birthday card. I decided not to over think it or try to combine too many challenges. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't. I grabbed a couple of scraps I thought to be about the right size and that complimented each other.
This is what I came up with:
Paper: Ivy Lane, Balloon Ride, White Daisy CS (CTMH), Kraft (MFT)
Stamps: Perfect Fit - Birthday, Perfect Fit - Frames 2, Chantilly Card WOTG (retired)
Inks: Sweet Leaf, Sorbet, Crystal Blue, Chocolate (CTMH)
Tools: Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Scallop Border Punch, Paper-Piercer (CTMH)
Other: Olive Mini-Medley (retired), White Baker's Twine (retired), White Embroidery Floss (retired) (CTMH)
I used the current Mojo Monday #337 sketch as my inspiration. I had some long scraps that I trimmed off and decided to use them in a unique way for the inside of my card.
So, I have been busy making cards (some of which you've seen over the past 3 weeks or so) for my upcoming card workshop next Saturday. To be perfectly candid, I have been having trouble getting customers to commit to attending any of my workshops. I am not sure what else to do. I think I have been making quite a nice variety of cards that would fit masculine or feminine themes. I am feeling discouraged today. For those of you that hold workshops, what works best for you? I would love your input. You may even private message me through email if you would prefer.
On another note, if you see anything you like and would like to purchase either a pre-made card, or a kit to assemble, please contact me. I will give a special reduced rate to help offset the costs of shipping a kit to you. Thank you so much.
