This past week I went a little crazy. I intended to sit down and make a card of two, and ended up much more than two cards. My goal was to use scraps laying around. Some of the designs just didn't work that well (cut out polka dots) and some were gorgeous (green with poem, flowers, and bird). It's all about experimentation.
At Christmas, Pam had us make this awesome abstract Christmas tree.
I decided to take the idea and make some variations. I especially love how the "make a wish" candle comes off the paper. I colored it in with a bronze marker to add a bit more.
As part of our Stamp Club, Pam gave us homework! Homework! Oh my goodness. We had to make a card based off this sketch. And here are my attempts. I like the coffee one the best.
