Day 2! In case you missed it; It’s that time again, A-Z Challenge season! This month I am keeping things simple, sharing makes, past and present, as well as a few I’ll try to create just for the challenge! I am continuing with cheer, with handmade bright coloured cards!
Each post I will try to share around five or six pics of handmade cards, using different styles, methods and elements. For an added challenge, I will be working entirely from my craft stash! (I do have a ridiculous amount of papers, embelishments and what not to use!)
The April A-Z Challenge
What is it all about? Basically posting every day throughout April, except Sundays. Following the alphabet, whether keeping to a theme or otherwise. It’s a great challenge, and one of my favourite parts is meeting other bloggers!

An A-Z of Handmade Cards
This year for MY April A-Z Challenge; I have chosen a running theme of handmade cards. Although I make cards for every occasion, it is rare these days, for me to actually share them! So throughout April I will be sharing cards I have made, to both share, and perhaps inspire others to give card making a try! I will endeavour to use a variety of creative methods, covering many every-day events.
Bright Coloured Cards
I love working to a theme, even if the theme is something so simple as using bright, fun colours! I decided to start with a simple base for my bright colour theme:
I split the cards into two sets of three cards, just to use up some bits and pieces in my craft stash! (I’m already wondering what I’m going to do with all of these cards come the end of the challenge!)
If you’d like any of the cards from the challenge, get in touch… We could sort something out maybe!
These are intentionally simple at the moment, as I generally personalise cards, or add appropriate sentiments, when it comes to using them. These were fun to make, keeping the coordinated papers simple and then trying to match any embelishment.
Birthday cards are always handy to have around, and I love making a variety of styles and colours. I also like playing around with patterns and even textures occasionally!
