My Initial Days....

I really like the concept of giving handmade cards; it shows how much the person receiving the card means to you, as you spent so much time and effort in making the card for them. Though I have tried my hand at card-making as a child, mostly for my parent’s birthdays, I never took it up seriously until now.
Last year I decided to make a hand made card for my roommate a handmade card on her birthday, I had no resource required to make a card, I did not even have card stock, and it was quite late at night so I decided to improvise with whatever I had......I made a card using A4 size sheet of paper, postits and for coloring I used my lip liner pencil ;). Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the card, I’ll have to ask my roommate to take one so that I can post it here.
Next I decided to make a card for my mom’s birthday, and this time I was equipped with card stock and colors :) .
This is what I made (the pictures are not great as I never thought I would be posting them anywhere........)
And this is the card I made for my dad’s birthday.
I got both the ideas from searching on the internet.....I don’t remember what website now......
By now I was hooked......but I was still not aware of all the card making resources available today.
Slowly in the past year I have acquired quite a few card-making tools and have taken up card-making seriously.....most of my friends and family have received cards made by me (whether they like it or not ;) )....... I’ll be sharing my card-making experiences and ideas in the following posts.......I hope you enjoy going through my blog....
