Handmade Card

昨日カードを作られた方がとても素敵なカードを作られていたので、真似しちゃいました。とてもシンプルで人によってはお悔やみのカード?と言われそう(あのお友達の顔がよぎります)ですが、気に入っています。昔、香港で大好きなカード屋さんでカードを買っていた頃はごくごくシンプルなカードばかり買っていたので、一番惹かれるのはシンプルなカードですが、普通に手に入る紙はそういうところのカードの紙の質とは全然違うので気に入りませんでした。こうしてエンボスすると質感が出るので紙の質もそれほど気にならない様な気がします。2枚はシンプルなまま、あとの2枚には小さなハートをのせて少し可愛らしさを加えてみました。

実は、作っていて楽しいのは色々作業がある可愛いカードだったりするのですけどね。

I liked 2 blue cards that my friend was making yesterday so I made similar cards last night.  There was a card shop in Hong Kong that I loved and that’s where I used to go whenever I wanted to buy some cards and I always chose very simple cards because I do tend to like simple look.  When I started making cards, I tried to make some very simple cards, the sort of cards I would buy if they were in a card shop, but I wasn’t very happy with the results.  I felt that the quality of the paper of the cards I used to buy were very high so they looked lovely but with lower quality card stock (that we can usually buy for craft) are not special and I personally feel they don’t look so nice if they are really simple.  However, when the paper is dry embossed, I feel they don’t show the quality of the paper as much.  I’m quite pleased with these.

I kept some of them very simple but added a small heart for 2 of them for a little cuteness.

I think, I enjoy making cards that has more elements more, though, because the process is a lot of fun.
