FIRST CARDS

Happy New Year, crafty reader!  I made sure the last couple of weeks before 2021 were productive, and I have to say they were.  There was a lot of improvement in my craft space, and I can't wait to show them to you.  

But for now, I want to share with you some cards I made for a co-worker.  We swapped, actually.  She's a quilter, and I'm a card maker.  I made cards for her in exchange of two quilted Christmas stockings she made for the kids.      

The image you see here is from a swap I joined in an online stamping community many years ago, which I colored with Copics.  The background stamp is from a swap too.  I sure love swaps!  The sentiment is a leftover from the Anna Griffin card kit I got from HSN.



For this card, the owl is actually from an actual packaging.  The image is so cute, so might as well use it.  




This card didn't involve any images, so I used more ornate designs like the edge punch by Martha Stewart and dies by Spellbinders.  The bird is part of the designer paper.



I enjoyed making a good number of cards for my co-worker.  It gave me a chance to use up leftover supplies and materials.

Stay safe everyone!
