January 2017 Handmade Cards: Blue Tones

When it comes to celebrating, I love giving handmade cards, they feel so much more personal, and are enjoyable to design and plan.

Every month, at least for a while(!) I will do a card post, to share some of the cards I have made, including recent creations, and makes from the past.

My Card Making Journey Begins

My card making adventure began when I started to struggle to find ‘the perfect card’ for people, in shops.

I had made a few cross-stitch cards, using kits, and soon started to use pretty papers and other embellishments. This grew into building a collection of papers, toppers and card blanks! Since then I have made many of my own cards for all occasions!

My Card Making Journey Continues

I now make cards for everyone, and have done fairly exclusively, for several years. I use a range of mediums from cross-stitch to stamping, though paper layering and embellishing with buttons, ribbon and gems, is a favourite.

There are times it is difficult, whether it’s finding inspiration or wanting to create something I simply don’t have the time and skill to produce, and I will use paper piecing kits, usually though, I create embellishments and simply buy lettering stickers, or gems, creating many toppers myself.

January – Blue Tones

This month I thought I would share some cards I have made, using blue tones, whether it is lettering, beads, fabric or papers, it is a beautiful colour that works so well for many occasions!
