Let's start the new year with some cards!

Happy new year, people!

This blog has been dead since April, and I have hardly done any paper crafting since then. It startet with beeing busy doing other fun stuff, like gardening, renovating our house, horseback riding etc etc, and then I got the biggest Scrap.Block.Ever.

Then I got this big card order (60 cards) and I just had to force myself to picking up card making/scrapping again. How on earth do you attack a 60 card order, all of them need to be different?
I always return to sketches.

My card order is complete, and I got the inspiration to do three of the last ones from this great sketch at "Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge".





Here is my first card:


I chose to do my card landscape oriented, but you can still see the elements in the sketch :-)


I often make three cards with one sketch, as I often get new ideas when creating. I even did it easier for myself by sticking to the same paper collection for all the three cards, the Bella Blvd Color Chaos.

Next card:

And my third card - this time I flipped it and chose landscape again:


I often use 3D foram on some parts of my cards to make more dimension/depth.



Thank you for stopping by. Please come back on Tuesday for a layout featuring the newest member of the family zoo: our kitten Preben Mohammed. I also will show three new cards made from one single sketch on Thursday.

Have a fabolous week!

Happy New Year! Great cards Hilde! Even though you used the same sketch, they all look so different. Love it! Wow! 60 cards is a lot. Good for you for taking that one and powering through it. Wishing you and your family all the best for a wonderful 2016.
