christmas thank you cards

Here’s a quick post with the cards. Tomorrow I’ll try to weave in ends, possibly block the knitting/crochet stuff, so I can do a photoshoot. 🙂

Made 3 in this style.

I pulled 9 sheets from the Christmas scrapbooking pad that I bought last month, made 12 cards. All of these are pretty simple. I matched it to the size of the other cards we are sending out, so they can be in the same envelope.
I think my favorite is the first in the first row or the middle in the center row. 🙂 The penguin is cute though.

While doing the lettering, I started listening to The Hunger Games audiobook. So excited for the movie!

paper scrap cards

To use up the scrap paper from the paper strip woven thank you cards, I decided to make some more cards:

I’m still in to the look of paper weaving, so this continues that theme with the strips woven into a triangle.  They’re all of assorted sizes and colors, to add more interest. I backed it with white paper, so that it shows up better on the background paper. I think that it’d probably look better with a more solid color background actually, so that there is more contrast. Anyways, I really like how it sort of looks like a fancy knot.  There’s an empty space left in one of the corners, so that I have a place to add text in later. Will still have to think about how best to incorporate it though.

Here’s my favorite of the bunch:

random cards (April)

ahhh, I failed at the once/week update goal, but life has been really busy as of the past few weeks (see DD&D for more info). Because of that, arts and crafts projects have mostly been on hold, but here are a few more cards from April with random thoughts. Also, SO sorry to any people I’ve missed doing a card for this year. ><

I’m pretty happy with this! Totally obsessed with those flourishes and that bracketing swirl. Just wish that I had time to finish it off with an envelope. Would like to work on my penmanship.

Here, I tried something new for the “envelope” part, using a trifolded paper, secured by paper cut belt. It works pretty well, but I don’t know if it would stand up to being put in the post. Favorite part for this is definitely the lettering/numbering. Think I will experiment with the effect of the foil paper backing. Would like to have a gold metallic pen, and see if I can make the pen I have come out with thinner
