Hello bloggers :) Today I wanted to pop by and share another card I created using Lawn Fawn's Just My Type that will release May 5. If you missed yesterdays creation plus the pretties the DT made no worries you can go here to catch up.
Now to the card...
Isn't this phone just the cutest little thing? I love the fact that you can color it in. So you can stamp it on pattern paper, color it multi-colors, add prints, whatever suits you creative style. For this one I just used my good old crayola color pencils.
I took a closer shot so you can see some of the details I added to my little phone. I cut out the phone handles for dimension and also the dial (I punched each little dial). It was hard to shoot but I also wrote tiny numbers inside the dial.
I love embellies especially the handmade ones. We (crafters) own so many tools that make creating embellies super easy. The one reason I barely use them is because they're time consuming and I don't just want to add it to card that might end up in the trash.
Which leads me to the next point. Today is the National Scrapbooking Day!!! Happy day to all you neighbor friends who love this form of paper crafting :)
Some friends have suggested I become a scrapbooker because of me being too concerned with having my beloved projects thrown away. Have you contemplated it yourself? I've been thinking about it. I'm just horrified of long term projects (same reason why I've never done a quilt). Oh decisions. I won't abandon cardmaking. I'll get more simple (if that's possible). I can't even imagine how some of you girls give away some of your cards I mean they look so pretty it makes me want to frame them. But then again there's just something about giving away of your energy and time. And it reminds me of why I started this journey, really. Maybe I got caught up with the dazzle of the "material" and that in turn made me forget about the the purpose why it's created.
What are your thought on the matter? I'd really like to hear :)
