This is my first post since I have returned from holiday. The holiday was amazing, we did lots of travelling and it was just great. I saw the Taj Mahal... that was just a stunning day. Anyways, this is a card blog not a holiday blog so before I go on and on about the holiday let me tell you about my card.
This week at Craft Your Passion, we were asked to make a diamond fold card, this I found really difficult to start with. I think I've lost my mojo because first I just couldn't figure out the folds (so simple now, I don't know why I was being so dumb) then I couldn't make my mind up about what to put on it. The image I wanted to use didn't look great to me when I made it smaller so I decided to cut the image out instead to make it work. To be completely honest I still don't know if I like it or not :( I found this image difficult to work with as I couldn't decide what theme I should go for. As Christmas is round the corner and I need to keep adding to my Christmas cards (don't we all) I decided to emboss the side panels in a snowflake folder to keep to the Christmas theme. Overall this is a really simple card, the instructions on how to make this card are here. I coloured the image in promarkers and rubbed some chalk over the embossed card. Very simple indeed.
Guys I will be back with some more fun cards, I need to get back into it, I just can't get started that's my problem, 3 weeks away from it all and this is what happens tut tut tut.....
Thanks for all your comments while I was off, keep them coming, it may help get my mojo back x
