I got to try a new card technique, and it was fun! It was also a lot of work- whew! I did these for a card swap with the PBS Swappers Paper Crafts Yahoo Group, and I think I'm glad there were only 4 of us signed up for this one...these were way more time consuming that I expected they would be. I'm really glad I tried them out though- I love learning new things!
The swap is for either slide, pop-up, or iris fold cards. I contemplated doing a simple pop-up, since I kind of put off doing my cards and started to run out of time. But when I watched this video on the double slide cards, I really wanted to try it. I think I did ok on these, though there are definitely some things I would do differently next time. For one, I would leave more time to work on them! I enjoyed making different designs for these, rather than making the same design for everyone in the swap, like I usually do. I hope everyone likes what they get from me!
That's all I have this week. What- Mother's Day is coming up this weekend?? Yeah...I figured that out just a bit late! I guess since Easter was so late this year, I just wasn't thinking about Mother's Day, and it kind of snuck up on me. I would love nothing more than to make handmade cards for my mom and step-mom, but at this point, I will be lucky if I can buy a card and get it in the mail on time! Next year, I promise!
