So this year, i decided to use my newfound skills to make cards for mother's day. made one for my ma, and the other for my dearest Chetna aunty. she doesn't have a daughter, and kinda thinks of me as one. just recently she bought me a bracelet. a pretty one. so
i made one for her, and of course gifted her a big bar of chocolate. this one is for chetna auntyFor my ma's card i basically made a simple card on the outside but on the inside was pop up card made from one of the tutorials on craft tv weekly webisode. On Saturday, i went to this store where i ended up buying a whole ton of craft supplies, so i used the rolling stamp to make the background. Gosh these days, i'm combining techniques from different websites and different tutorials and making my own mish mash of cards. but all my family seems to love it. My brother even told me to quit my physical therapy and open my card making shop. :)
I've been on a card making spree this weekend. Made a shaker card from one of the tutorials on Maria's blog. it turned out fine except the confetti inside the shaker kept getting stuck to the foam tape and refused to show itself. a lil shaking and banging works,they appear for a while and then again they hide. sigh...gotta find a way to avoid that.
Kinda found a solution to that, Thanks to Maria. She told me to use big confetti and i thought of using q-tip to use talcum powder and rub off the stickiness on the inside of the foam tape.
PS. Can you guess what...Maria left a comment on this blog. WOW! that's like a msg from my mentor. i look up to her as my inspiration. Thanks Maria for taking time to leave msg.
