Hobby and Interest Greetings Cards: April A-Z

Day 8! 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! Today I thought I’d go a little more specific, with some hobby and interest cards.

An A-Z of handmade cards - April A-Z Challenge 2022

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.

Hobby and Interest Cards

As much as I love working to a theme; sometimes, the joy of making cards for specific people is that you can make them really personal; by going with a design based on their favourite hobbies or interests.

A lot of the cards in this post are past makes; because I tend to make these as and when I need them.

What is fun when making very personal cards; is the chance to find embellishment and colours that really suit the person receiving the card. I also like to try and use a variety of colours and textures.

Again some cross-stitching in here. I like to use cross-stitch for cards for special birthdays generally; though sometimes I have mini-kits laying around that are perfect for a particular person.
