Cards

Last week I felt like a few people needed cheering up and seeing that Steven was in respite one evening, I thought I would make a few cards. So after doing Alma's birthday card the week before, I thought I would use the kit I got her greeting from and I came up with these...









But enjoyed making them so much, carried on using the kit and ended up making another 24, lol...



and still got stacks left in the kit, but will save that for another day, as want a change of scenery... The only downside to the kit is the greetings as I feel they don't show the greeting up too well. With Alma's one I went over the greeting with a glitter pen, but these cards I rubbed over some chalks to help highlight the greeting, has anyone else had this problem and if you have, how did you deal with it?...

Hi Maria

What a lovely kit - and thank you so much for my card - so pretty and totally unexpected. I am totally useless at cards so think I need to invest in a kit like this for inspiration.
