Crafts : Handmade Cards
« on: October 21, 2007, 11:31:40 am »
I love to make homemade cards ... its a bit of an obsession really  ;D

I get quite a lot of orders from my work colleagues, the majority of which are for personalised ones, which does get you thinking and can be a challenge.

Does anyone else make their own cards ?

hiya i make my own cards but don't sell them would love to. Just make them for friends and family at the moment no body has asked me to make any.
Do lots of swaps on different groups i belong to.

I used to just make them for friends and family, thats how it all started, a friend at work whom I made a card for asked if I would make her one .... and it snowballed from there  :)

I've not really had the opportunity to join in many craft sites, been too busy, what ones do you recommend?

I don't personally make cards, (Well having said that see I have JUST remembered it is our 3rd anniversary in 6 days!! So looks like I will be making at least one this year again!!)
But my adorable wife Andie does and is quite and avid maker of them!! Mind the amount she spends on stuff she should!! Latest WANT is a Quick-Kutz? Machine?? ONLY if you get shot of the sizzix says I!! But I'll get her to create an account and post here anyway!!

Hi Chrisgod.... you can never have enough crafting stuff  ;D   We need all these machines to make our lovely cards.. I think you should buy the new one for your Oh for her anniversary.. that would gain you at least 10 brownie points  ;)
