Since December, my friend J has been coming over where we work on cards, scrapbooking, and other paper crafts together. During that time, I made a birthday card for a little boy who lives in Australia. Two actually.
I have wanted to try out the Lego cards. I did that one on the a Tuesday. I liked this card much better. I was very surprised that it had taken me almost 2 hours to make. I had one heck of a time of figuring out the measurements. If it didn’t take so much time and patience, I would have inked the edges. But in all honestly, he is just a little boy who would care more about the present than the card.
I tried something new in the books. The book is 3 inches by 4 inches. Some of the pages are actually 9 inches by 4 inches, giving it a fold out look. I want to see if I can make a bigger size, but I am limited to the page size.
I’m actually enjoying our time together, it get me going on making cards. Lately, I haven’t found the urge, whether is because I am sick, still tired from Christmas, or I haven’t came up with any good ideas.
However I made these cards for my friend T.
This card is called the Magic Card from Tracylovestoscrap. You can find her YouTube video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtskXgfAwuU I hoping that link works. I’m sorry that it is blurry. I didn’t realized that my eyes were getting bad until a few days later when I had my arm outstretched to read a text. And unfortunately, I already the mailed the card.
The only thing that I have problems with this card is getting an envelope to mail. I ended up gently folding the ends back and putting in a card plastic cover before mailing it.
Anyway, that is all I can say. I hope everyone is doing well.
