I am not a card maker. I really enjoy making cards, and I have lots of stuff to make cards, but I don't know why I'm not more into it. Maybe because it takes me at least an hour to make one...most of that time spent fiddling with the design. And I really love finding pretty and clever note cards to give instead.
When I do make cards, I usually cannibalise bits and pieces left over from other projects, or even from cards that other people have given me. For example, the green card above is made from a scrap of fabric left from Baby Mason's gifts, and an extra of a printed wordle design that I made for my nephew. The pink and red card has a bit of scrapbook paper that fell off a notebook that I embellished, and a piece of a friend's wedding program.
My daughter does the same, using many many more elements, including: wrapping paper, cards, candy wrappers, envelopes, and scalloped tissue paper.
