It's been awhile since I've shared some of my handmade cards with you so I decided to do a "card round up" post before the Easter projects begin!
Well, first I had the unpleasant task of making a sympathy card. I don't know a card maker on the planet who enjoys making a sympathy card. We just hope and pray our handiwork brings comfort to the recipient as we make it. This card was made for a good friend of mine who lost her father-in-law.
I used retired Stampin' Up! sets to make this card. I kept it simple and elegant by stamping the images directly onto the main card base and coloring it in with Copic markers. I then matted it on a black piece of card stock to make everything pop before I adhered it to a white card base.
The rest of the cards I have to show you were all made from my "Colorful Blessings" Card fronts I purchased on Amazon. These are all pre-printed card fronts that you simply color in and mount to a card base.
The designs in this kit are usually very intricate so I almost always use my gel pens to color them. This results in very bright and vivid colors.
I almost always mount the card fronts to a dark base first to make the colors pop and then I put them on a white card base.
The card below however already had so much white space, I chose a coral card to mount it on.
Sometimes when I'm done with my Bible Journaling for the day, I just like to pull out a card front and color. Like I do with my Bible Journaling, I try to mediate on the verse as I color. I then make a card out of the front even though I may not have a recipient for it, and just put it in my stash so I have a card ready when needed.
Have A Great Day! Amy
