Ahem, I apologise for my choice of words in explaining the blog post.....Sorry. But it really was true and I did make a crap card great, promise!
When I first started making card, I thought I was so clever. I made little note cards out of my scraps and used wage pockets for envelopes. Clever, yes. pretty? no. Well, not to my eye anyway. Not after a year of making cards and learning from some really talented people out there.
I failed to take a photo of the 'before', but can explain it pretty easily. the card was just a base with one piece of patterned paper on it. The envelope had one piece of embossed cardstock on it, with a button sewn to the bottom left corner.
I scratched like an eager chicken through my stash and found some die cut hearts, and heart bling and a worthy stamp. The die cut hearts have been lying in a black hole for the last two years, I think they are happy to see the light of day.
I added the hearts, stamped the sentiment and voila!
The envelope was treated with some patterned paper, glossy accents and the heart bling.
Don't they just look lovely together?
I hope everyone is having a good week so far, I'm finding it difficult to believe that we're almost half way through the month already!
