Card-Making Frenzy

Well, just like the title says, I’ve been in a card-making frenzy the last little bit! Card-making was one of the first “crafty” things I got in to, and it’s still one of my favorites.

I often like to do a set of cards for friends’ birthdays. Like this one . . . OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(See that little flower element? So cute, huh?! You can make your own! Dawn over at Raspberry Suite gives a fantastic video tutorial on how to make them)

Then I like to personalize a set of matching envelopes . . .

And then put it all together to wish them a happy day :)

These are a few designs I’ve worked on during the past few weeks . . .

Some of the designs I’ve done before.

Then I just mix it up with different papers and a new color palette . . .

This one I did in honor of the upcoming Fall season. A pseudo season here in Arizona for sure. But one I like to celebrate and decorate for nonetheless :)

I’m don’t consider myself very creative when it comes to thinking up new designs. So I like to browse the Internet for new and fun ideas. Raspberry Suite is by far one of my favorite places to stop at for inspiration. She’s super talented! Stop by her blog if you're in the mood for some card candy :)
