My first Easel Card
I am a bit nervous about sharing my card as I've not shown my cards to anyone ever not even friends or family.
I've been card making for 6 months but once my cards are made I hide them in a drawer ... bit of a waste but I am self conscious to show them off, so here I go
I made this card using an A4 piece of card stock folded in half and one half folded in half again, a strip of another colour piece of card raised up on foam tape, with a silver border peel off, silver star stickers and a decoupage topper from the Gorjuss range, not made for anyone just hidden away
Every one of us will relate to this as we are all our own worst critics. We make a card and for whatever reason we think it is not good enough.
But we all need to remember that MOST people don't know how to make a card and MOST are not even remotely interested in doing so
So to them the cards that we card makers do make are always a special treat and well received by them. And the comments that come from them should spur us on to make even more.
And don't forget that the more you make the better you will become.
So I would say to you Cat that your card is very pretty and for a first attempt at the Easel card it is well done.
The addition of the stars makes it sparkle and you should be proud of your efforts.
Please don't hide them away ... give them to friends and family whenever the occasion arises.
Make them special cards for their Birthdays and have fun making your own Christmas cards too.
You will be surprised at the lovely comments that you get ... especially from the wonderful visitors to this website.
And please please don't be afraid to add more to the Gallery as you make them.
You will find lots of ideas with instructions and video tutorials to help you with other styles and I am only at the end of an email and will help whenever I can
