Purple Embossed Flower Cards – Set of 4

I’ve entered the world of embossing – and I love it!! Take a look at these sweet purple embossed flower cards:


 

“Ivory card’s measurements are 5″x7”, matching envelope included.

Created during a blizzard (or also known as the United State’s February 2011 “Snowpacolypse”), this monochromatic purple flower card screams spring! The large flower is so cheerful! The embossing on this card adds a pleasant texture and visual interest – I wish I could find the perfect words to describe to you the unique texture this card possesses. Blank inside, these four (4) cards are just waiting for you to personalize them!”

Texture

Fellow crafters, do you ever find yourself in a crafting rut? “I’m running out of ideas…what should I create now that’s new and different?…I want to think out of the box, but which way do I turn?”

I too get stuck in ruts at times. Turn to the Elements of Art, fellow wonderer.  I’ll be touching on texture in this particular post.

Adding texture to handmade paper goods is always a nice touch. Texture adds interest and a touch of the unexpected.

Busy Weekend!

It’s been a busy weekend! I’ve made a few cuties…now I have to decide which ones will be saved for an upcoming craft fair or my Etsy shop {PiecefulJoy.etsy.com}. What do you think?

Hello world!

I have a love for card design and crafting. This blog is to shadow my journey as I explore avenues of card design and crafting, to capture the fruit of my labor and to inspire others. I find joy in making things (thanks for the inspiration, Grandma!)…I especially enjoy combining different mediums to make cards full of texture, detail and visual interest. An etsy shop is in the making….so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out my blog and explore http://www.etsy.com.
