My friend and neighbor asked if I would make two birthday cards for their two grandsons. I asked what they were into….hello, LEGO! So I searched on the internet and I “cased” a couple of cards.
I definitely had fun making them.
I enjoy a number of crafts from beading jewelry, sewing, crochet, knitting through to card making. I have dabbled in digital scrapbooking but I have not yet worked on the paper kind....give me time!
I find there are just too many people out there who will steal someone's creative work, claim it is their own and submit it to contests and challenges. Sheesh...give me a break!
I'm not talking about "casing" a card...I am guilty of that as I do not have a creative brain cell in my brain. I however, do not submit that card to a challenge or contest.
So...today I finally "Googled" and found a simple, easy method of creating a watermark and I will be using them from now on...especially as I would like to start selling my cards.
Today's card is for my 92 year old father for his birthday. I have seen this card a few times on the internet. I did not want to spoil a deck of cards so...I searched for images for the four cards and printed my own on card stock. For the background, I found a clip art on the internet and duplicated it until I had my own background paper. Then, I scrunched the paper up...flattened it out and distressed it with Vintage Photo.
