I used to really enjoy making cards. I sold my handmade cards for several years, and I was commissioned to make wedding invitations twice. I even went through a period where I preferred making cards over scrapbooking. So I don't know when or how it happened, but I have somehow become much, much less of a cardmaker. I haven't even done my annual Christmas cards for a few years now, which was always my favorite thing to do each year. I'm wondering if I simply lost my cardmaking mojo and just needed some inspiration to get me back in the swing of things, because ever since I discovered that one of my favorite sketch blogs (Sketchabilities) has a sister blog called Cardabilities, which features card sketches, I have become much more motivated to create cards again. I didn't get particularly elaborate with this one as this summer has been extremely busy already and I needed to just whip up a quick card, but that's what the current sketch at Cardabilites certainly enabled me to do.
I flipped the sketch and came up with this simple thank you note for my grandma...
My grandma loves butterflies, so I started with a journaling card from an older My Mind's Eye line called Quite Contrary and used some of the coordinating stickers as well. I used two different 6x6 templates from Crafters Workshop to make the background, which was probably the most time-consuming thing I did to put this card together.
Thanks so much for looking and have an awesome weekend!
