A couple cards

Hiya,
So as many of you may know or think i am not a big card maker. I am awful, awful at making cards! For some reason i think cards need to be flat and mailable and i’m not good at working with flat as you may realize LOL! So i always find cards challenging which makes me not want to make them which in return makes me learn nothing about making them. So i thought last night i would make (2) 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 cards for fun using some scraps and flowers from my extra flower jar! This is what i came up with.
WARNING :: Dimension Ahead

and the second

I would love your opinion! I think i’m going to try and make cards more often as it was fun making these! I always get stuck though! Also don’t forget to check out my vagabond giveaway!
I cant wait for CHA!
Love you all
Drew

    These are both stunning, I struggle with this too. I saw a video by a very talented lady who made little cardstock boxes to put dimensional cards in for mailing, and that is also a lovely storage idea for something that I would consider a keepsake. TFS

    Cards look great! Just use a Puffy Envelope… truthfully I am NOT a cardmaker- I find people don’t appreciate them and think Oh she made it- so I would rather make mini books and StUFF…

    As with all your scrappy work, your cards are Awesome, Drew! I love all of the dimension and texture! Not all cards have to be mailed…you could always hand deliver your chunky cards- LOL!

    the cards are gorge, what else can I say, you did an awesome job with them. I make some cards but only for special people, some are not worthy of so much work. I love your colors and grouping of everything on them. Great, beautiful, wonderful.

    These are both amazing! Please, your not a card maker?
    I love the dimension, you can always make an envelope with a little gusset and add a piece of bubble wrap to prevent the smashing.
    Thanks for sharing

    Drew you did a wonderful job! Most of my cards I make require extra shipping, but they are perfect to send along with packages. Love all the dimension!

    Hey Drew, I love your lumpy cards. You could send one my way any day and I’d take it gladly.

    LOVE your cards. I’m with you on the cards being (nearly) impossible to make without a little fluff. I always seem to start out by saying the next card will fit into a standard envelope but, by the time I’m done with the card, I need to make a box for it….lol

    Hi! Just found your blog, you are super talented and I must say I am glad there is another boy scrapper in Cali!!! lol! You rock!

    Drew, I love these cards!! Making them used to give me fits as well, I had to “pretend” I was making a mini chunky layout instead LOL Making mini albums is still my fave though. You’ve got a great eye for details!

    So beautiful. It would be nice if you held a contest to send these out if you could. I personally would be proud to display them in my craft room.

    Oh i love the first one with that ORANGE amazing..
    thanks for sharing

    Stunning! So in love with the crocheted flowers you used…

    Drew, your cards are fabulous! You should make them more often! Just use a puffy mailing envelope. The more dimension on a card, the better (in my opinion). I too only give cards to people who appreciate them. Can’t wait to see more of your cards! 🙂

  28. January 17, 2012 / 3:21 am

    Drew, I have been making cards for several years now and I don’t think I ever made a flat card. The more dimension the better I say. Your cards look fantastic to me. My family anticipates the next card they get from me and I try to deliver every time. It’s getting harder to outdo myself,lol, so be careful of what you wish for. Once you start sending these they’ll be crying out for more. Some of my family and friends have framed them,saying they’re like mini works of art, so I feel very honored. Keep up the great work!

    The cards are beautiful Drew.

    I Love them Grew! Cards can be whatever you make them to be. I think bigger is better. ;0) 5×5 are a good size to do so you can chunk them up. If they need to be mailed it can just go in a little box. That’s how I do it. TFS!

  31. January 31, 2012 / 5:00 am

    you are wonderful and i love your cards

  32. February 2, 2012 / 8:45 am

    Lovely cards Drew, you certainly have a huge talent. Cards can be whatever you desire, you just have to choose carefully who you give them to.
