Champagne Wishes and Crafty Dreams 6 – Card Making (2)

Posted May 25, 2016 by Andi in Crafty Fun / 2 Comments

Since I last checked in for an edition of Craft Dreams I have made a boatload of cards (2 I can’t show you yet because they recipients haven’t gotten them). I have tried my hand at a baby card, a graduation card and a “masculine” birthday card or two. I seriously have so much fun doing this things and I hope it never ends.


My mom’s friend had a baby a few months back and mom as if I would make a baby card. It was my first attempt at it and I have it say it is one my my favorites. I hope the do similar in the future.


My former boss had a birthday in the beginning of May so we all sent him a card. I got the idea from Pinterest (shocker) and I cut all the ties out by hand. It was kind of perfect for him as he is a huge tie guy and never wore the same one twice when we worked together.

Oddly enough my current boss has the same birthday as my former boss. Green is her color of choice when I made this for her with that in mind. It was my first time using a Project Life card as the inside sentiment and I don’t hate the idea.


If you follow Miranda Kenneally on Twitter the chance is you have already seen this one. I sent it to her (WAY LATE) for her birthday. She told me she like gold, pink and silver so she got gold, pink and silver. The Birthday banner was my first time using my own foiling on a card and I LOVE it.


Brandy is up next. Her birthday was the day that I left for Mexico and luckily I got it out on time to her. I seriously am in love with the background paper. The watercolor and the print of the present just made me happy in the end.


A coworker graduated from college this past weekend so I was once again asked at work to make a card. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out as it was another new one for me but I LOVE it. I luckily found that great stamp and perfect ink so it ended up as I hoped.


And finally my next masculine birthday card. I haven’t given this one out yet but I will this weekend. I struggled for a while with ideas but I think it turned out perfect for the person receiving it.

And there you have it, my current foray into card making.  If you need a card for something let me know. I would be willing to talk it over with you and come up with a reasonable price.

*The ABCs will be back next week.
