All of the watercolor supplies have been put 'away' to make room for cardmaking supplies. Like most craft supplies, my cardmaking stuff multiplies (exponentially) as I find more ideas and supply sites. I think the good thing is that I have almost everything I need now, except paper of course.
On my previous blog entry, from March, I posted a few of the first cards that I made . I was fascinated by the layouts and neat folds and cardmaking techniques. They took time to make and I used a lot of paper (I made a lot of mistakes) but the end product was so satisfying.
So I searched for more of these interesting folded cards. You would not believe how many different ways you can cut, score & fold a piece of paper. Here are a few more of the first cards I made.
This is what cardmakers call an 'Inchie Card'. Each little square is a one inch square or close to it. This card was made using a combination of techniques. The background floral design was stamped on a sheet of white cardstock. Then I colored it with "gelato" crayons. Then, I cut the colored design into the pieces & glued them on the paper in rows of rearranged flowers. The flower was a pre-cut die~I "punched up" the color a bit to match the card colors.
Now you have an idea of what cardmaking entails.....but there is SO MUCH more.
