You Brighten My Day

You Brighten My Day | by Shawn

This morning I cracked open the April Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp and decided it would be great to use for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge #129 by Jen M.

Oddly enough, the sentiment is very similar to my last post, but I went with it anyway.

Hello | by Shawn

After receiving my Hello Sunshine haul from Lawn Fawn, I decided make this card using sketch #126 from Freshly Made Sketches.

I layered my papers on a Hero Hues Daffodil note card from Hero Arts, which I thought matched the Hello Sunshine patterned paper nicely. The green stripe is finished with a bit of Wink of Stella glitter pen to give it a little shine.

Welcome to my blog. My name is Shawn and I’m new to card-making, but after a few months of learning some techniques, I’ve decided to have a place to show off some of my creations.

My first post is also the first card-making project I attempted last December when I was running late on sending out my greeting cards. I knew I didn’t want to buy store-bought cards, so I turned to Kristina Werner for an idea I could duplicate quickly.

Kristina’s videos on You Tube got me hooked on my new-found craft, so I thought it was a no-brainer when I needed some inspiration for my Christmas cards. Most of my friends didn’t even know I made these.
