I do however love the look and sentiment behind a handmade card and since time is such a commodity in my house, I try to make a bunch of cards in one go whenever I get a good idea, so here is my latest bash at card making, and look away if you're one of the above names!!
I'll preface this by saying I do not in any way consider myself a papercrafter, more of an enthusiastic dabbler!! I use what I have and have a go at new things, it's fun too.
Each bag is made of sheet felt, the heavy weight stiff stuff, some bags have a flap, some have beaded handles and some are closed with a square brad. The background is a textured paper that I coloured silver to give it a foil look, and I went to town with a teeny tiny heart hole punch, and made them half the width of regular cards so I could make more from the card blanks I had already.
I think they turned out cute, what say you lovely peeps?
