Hello! I submitted some cards last week for Paper Crafts recent call, but unfortunately none were accepted. So now I can share them here instead. I had one card accepted last fall, but haven't had any luck since then which is a little frustrating. I know there are so many talented people that are submitting as well, so it shouldn't come as a surprise. So I will continue to try, and most importantly I want to enjoy the process. I need to always remember that this is supposed to be a hobby! Getting a card accepted in a magazine would just be a huge bonus.
So without further ado, here are a couple of those cards:
The "hi" card is from Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday line, and the "happy Birthday" card uses Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird line. I love both of these lines! A hint on the scallops on the "hi" card: I just used a circle punch and then cut them in half to make the scallops. On the birthday card (which is now in my sister's hands - hope your birthday was great!), the flower is made from 4 scalloped circles. (I have the Stampin' Up scallop circle punch.) I fold each circle in half, then overlap them, like you do when you're trying to close up a cardboard box, gluing them down as you go. That might be as clear as mud, so if anyone is interested, I can try to show pictures to better demonstrate that.
I'll save some more for next time. Until then, have a wonderful and safe 4th!
