Although I have not made hand made cards with the same intensity as I did around Christmas. I have made a few cards for various occasions.
I have really upped my game since I started Card making. Although I enjoyed the work I did at Christmas I did feel that they were amateurish.
I also had a limited budget which meant I was creating dozens of cards from limited stock.
They say practice makes perfect and with time, effort, persistence and opportunity to increase my stock of craft making materials I feel I am producing some high quality cards.
Card making became my creative pursuit because all my hobbies involved exercise, which was no good when I was tired and wanted to relax.
Everyday is a learning process as I learn new techniques. Sometimes I have no idea what I am going to design and am inspired only by colours or particular craft items.
I also keep a supply of recycled materials and buy cheap cards to cut up for my work.
The only problem now is my small box is increasingly becoming bigger and I need to sort out all my materials.
