My girlfriend Becky, who lives in Charlottesville, Va., has sent me a couple of cards this year that I just loved. I thought they were so beautiful. In fact, I thought they were so beautiful that she BOUGHT them. Guess what? SHE MADE THEM. Here’s a couple of pictures:
Isn’t this pretty? It was made with real wildflower, or dried flowers of some kind, and they were somehow adhered to the white panel, then mounted on the green and the red panel, and then mounted on the card. Really beautiful – and I don’t know how she did it.
Then came this card:
Isn’t this pretty? And it was three-dimensional, one of my favorite things to do with cards. I think it really makes them pop. I think this was done with rubber stamps and decorative scissors, but again, I am not sure.
Listen, Becky, I know you read this blog. Will you please leave a comment here and tell us how you made these – did you design them yourself, copy a picture in a magazine or did you take a class? If you took a class, tell us where so other folks can sign up, too, if they’re in your area.
