The topic: And from earlier this month

----------------------------------------------

I've mentioned the cards I made last year that I never uploaded pictures of.  Well, I still intend to do that, but I thought it might be nice to share what else I've done.

The card in these photos is from the SVGCuts kit Harvest Mail. It was pretty fun to put together. I liked the paper so much, I bought more! You never know when they'll discontinue the stuff you like.

And when I got my friend a gift card, I remembered a freebie gift card holder from Dreaming Tree.

I used the same paper as I used in the card above.

I modified this from the Dreaming Tree version. I removed the holly berrys and leaves and in their place, cut out "Happy Birthday". And under the cut outs, I placed gold foil cardstock, to tie it all in with the gold in the cardstock.

Your work is absolutely gorgeous! I admire your patience.

Thank you. It can be frustrating, and to be honest, it’s not safe for children’s tender sensibilities when I’m gluing. Lots of tantrums and expletives, for sure. Good thing it’s not something I have to worry about.

But the finished project always has me thinking “wow, I made that with paper and glue!”

Honestly, kudos go out to the designers of the kits and their instructions. They are the ones who make it easier for me to do.

My contribution is picking out the paper and embellishments.

I think that’s why I share. Because if I can do it, anyone can.
