Card Making

Postby DaisyB » Sun Jun 22, 2008 12:08 pm

A new hobby to me and I'm having fun. Not that it's any cheaper than buying cards (certainly isn't) but I hope that they are appreciated by the recipients.

The latter three are made by 'tea bag folding'. The first was from a die cut decoupage kit.

This is decoupage. Masculine cards are so difficult.

Well, they are really really good June. My niece makes all her own cards - she did my wedding invitations too. Another friend does it as well. So clever, me - not creative in the slightest but I do appreciate a hand made card.

June. They are absolutely lovely. Such a lot of work has gone in to them.
Have you ever thought of putting them on E.Bay?

I have sold loads of my cards which are completely different to yours on e.bay and am still selling.
It's just so nice to make a little money out of a hobby that you enjoy doing, to at least buy more material to carry on.

I used to make Parchment Cards, but they take too long to make a profit by selling them. Have not done it for a while despite having loads of all the equipment and now feel guilty cos I enjoy it. My Mum-in-Law used to put the ones I sent her in a scrapbook.

Those lovely cards have got me June
