If you have been following my blog for any length of time, you might recall that once upon a time I used to post about the cards that I have been making. After spending a lot of money buying lots of equipment, and lots of supplies, last year my card making came to a sudden stop. I had only done one project outside of card making classes for a very long time. I should probably mention that I actually haven't finished any of the projects at class for ages either, generally because I am too busy talking, or cuddling my nephew!
A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine was getting married, and the pressure was on - was I going to make a card for her or not? In the end I did using colours that mimicked those in the wedding invitation (silver and black. The silver isn't showing up particularly well, but the heart on the interior of the card is silver). Then, at the last card making class, they decided to reinstate the card swap where we all have to make a set of cards and they are distributed to each of the participants. The theme was red and white, and so I decided to make the same design, but just in a different colours.
One thing you might notice is that my photography skills haven't improved.
So here are the two designs:
