Among all of the crafts I worked on for girls camp, and the orders for my Etsy shop, I decided to make a nautical theme card for my bimonthly card class*
|Nautical Card I designed and created.|
*I have been going to this card class for several years. A group of sisters get together every other month and make cards together. 6 of us teach a card and have kits ready so the rest of the sisters can make them. We take home 6 cards to use for a number of occasions. I have boxes of cards. I just love it! I started making the kits a year or so into it. I stopped just before I had my baby girl so this is the first card I have made in a long time, and unlike most of my cards, I designed this one all by myself. Boy did it feel good!
I am obsessed with all things nautical. Did I mention that? Yes I did. In another post, or was it more than one? ;)
I looked on Pinterest for some ideas, but none that I wanted to copy exactly. So I got brave and designed my own!
So in light of me being excited about making a card again, I decided to share some of my other cards. I think I'm missing one or two. I didn't realize how many I have done over the years!
|These were among my first. Simple and versatile!|
The flower is from the Silhouette online store
|I love this combination! The sketched flower is from Silhouette as well (several of my cards or parts of the cards are either from Silhouette or designed on my silhouette) I got the idea on Pinterest for the design and went from there. It isn't as fancy by any means, but I wanted to simplify it, so I did!|
|These I made when I found out I was having a girl last year. They are from Silhouette.|
|Also from Silhoutte. Great Father's Day Cards|
|Quick and simple Silhouette Card|
|My first card. Silhouette card as well. Don't worry I ventured out on my own too!|
|This was the first card I designed all by myself. I was proud of it. :)|
|Here is the inside. I used colored pencil and alcohol to get that effect.|
|I got a die cut machine for my birthday last year and I have had so much fun using it! So of course I had to make a card using the embossing folders I got as well! :D My own design.|
|The tree and ladybug are from Silhouette. But I designed the card myself.|
|These were originally birthday invitations, but they can be used as fun cards too, so that's what I did!|
|Also a birthday invitation. I found one similar on Pinterest and designed my own on my handy dandy Silhouette. It was a lot more in-depth than you may think!|
|This was also from one I found on Pinterest simplified (some of the tiles are dimensional)|
|Yet another Pinterest inspired card. :)|
So there you have it! There is one I'm sad I don't have. I found the idea through pinterest, but it was a square card, so I figured out the dimensions and did one that was a normal card size. It was for Mother's Day. I think I gave that one away though... go figure! I give a card away to someone!
