Quick Weekend Cards

 

A few cards I whipped up for the weekend! I took these photos from my phone, I was in a pretty big rush to get these done for all the birthday parties/events this weekend.

 

This one is a cased card (original here):

 

 

My usual little boy card, slightly varied:

 

 

This card is a work-in-progress. I whipped it up fast because I was in a rush, but in the future, I think I’ll probably alter the design a little bit more. Some of the elements don’t really flow as well, but for now, it’s good enough, I suppose.

 

 

Christmas 2012 – Week 10

Sorry this card is a little late – life got in the way. =) I also probably bit off more than I can chew… too many things going on and here I am, a newbie cardmaker, and each card is essentially me teaching myself new techniques and new layouts and it is starting to get a little exhausting!

I do have a confession to make – I had a half dozen sketches, and even a few card videos filmed, but because of my perfectionistic nature, I deleted them all and wiped the slate clean. It was discouraging. I still have a lot to learn in terms of the creative process and learning to let go! The purpose of this Christmas series was really to challenge myself with different layouts and experimenting with different and new techniques. And I am definitely doing just that, and learning a lot with this process.

So with that in mind, I decided to just go with what I had at hand, and literally just let it go. Hope it is OK.
