Well, this is the final week of my pre-made cards, so next week I’ll have to start getting creative again. Not that I haven’t been creative in the last few weeks as we’ve been getting decorations and other preparations ready for VBS, but I’ll actually have to sit down at my craft desk again instead of on the floor in the living room in front of My Little Pony reruns whilst crafting.
Cuz yeah, that happened.
After I made the “hi” card with the ribbon scraps, I’ve been trying to figure out a way to use more of those chipboard letters. (btw, I did end up having to go back and use some big glue dots on those letters to keep them attached to the card, because the glue on the back just didn’t hold.) I came up with the idea for this card, and was thinking about making a whole series of cards like it with different words, but then I thought that would be kind of boring. But maybe I’ll do that anyway, just to use stuff up, and not bother posting them here. Or doing a big long post with a bunch of cards in the same style. Who knows? It ain’t gonna happen for a while, at least until after VBS, if it does happen at all.
Oh, you want to see the card? Sorry, sometimes the rambling gets out of control.
I tried to find some cardstocks and letter stickers that matched the colors in the “a”, and came up with this simple design. The light mauve-y pinkish color is a textured cardstock, which adds to the character of the card without adding more colors and making it too busy.
So my thought was to use the letters and do like a series of “b is for blessing” and “c is for caring”, etc. kind of cards, just nice encouragement-type messages. That would use a lot of my letter stickers, too, which I have a LOT of, so maybe I should work on that sometime. If I made all the cards with the same layout, it wouldn’t actually be that hard, and it would use a lot of materials, which would be beneficial to my collection, especially if I used a layout that did use some more patterned-type papers. I really should work on that…
So yeah, I hope you have a great weekend, and a Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms reading this!
