My day off consisted of baking, watching shows, finishing a few projects for others, and making a few cards. I LOVE making cards. I'm not awesome at it. They aren't like the ones you see other people make that are super fancy and beautiful and precious. But I still love to make them and give them out. It's just more personal to me (even if they aren't the best out there, but I'm not trying to be the best. I'm just trying to be me).
So, I got busy going through my scrap paper box and my crafty things to pull together things. I decided on pumpkins and darker shades to match fall theme. I seem to prefer spreading out on the ground when I craft... That's why the shots are on the living room rug. Its just too cozy and easy to work with all of the floor space!
Below are some close ups.
To make the pumpkins and their leaves more distinct, I rolled the edges in my brown ink pad. I like how it causes a sharp contrast between the different colors the pumpkin is up against.
This one is my favorite. It is so simple and clean, but still has some whimsy to it.
Oh! I'm also taking part in a FB page hop! You can be a part of it too (check out other cool bloggers, find other FB pages to be a fan of...) It's fun!
Below are all of the cards I made - pumpkins and a box of candy. Haha. Anyone else like to make cards? Or did anyone else realize that even the best of cameras needs good lighting (or good photo editing software, which I don't have)? I'm still loving the new camera, though!
