The Joy of Handmade Cards

By With No Comments

Passing-of-time-cardI really like making cards (if you can't tell LOL). This is a card that I designed for a recent card class but with a specific recipient in mind…(doing double duty). The flowers at the left are done using a technique that was demonstrated at Stampin' Up!'s convention. The large flower from the Betsy's Blossoms set was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with clear EP. The image was then punched out with the Blossom punch – creating a totally different flower! Of course, being the lazy crafter that I am, I simply pulled the colours from the Floral District Designer Series Paper (why think any harder than I have to?!).

The class attendees enjoyed making this card, and the recipient was just as happy! This is my great aunt (and cousin beside her) at a recent family gathering where we celebrated her 90th birthday.
