wedding cards summer 2017

Marriage! People do it, and they often appreciate cards to acknowledge the occasion. Here are some such cards: I love those vellum hearts. I would probably put it on everything I make. (The above card is available here). This one was made to match the colours of the invitation, light yellow and a wine colour….

One year of card challenges!

As of today, I have been participating in card challenges for a whole year! I took a bit of time off in the fall to focus on a couple of craft fairs I had to make for, but I began challenges a full year ago. This is the post that began it all: 09 February…

Shop Anniversary Give Away

EDIT: The winner of the give away is Rie / riedesignsph! Congratulations! (09 Sept 2016) In about two weeks (Friday 09 September) I will be celebrating the one year anniversary of my online shop, abitofglueandpaper.ca. Though I have not made any sales from it, I still consider it a milestone. It was a hard step…

love greeting cards 2016 – assorted

These are thankfully a bit more elaborate than the ones I made way back at the beginning of January. They have a more romantic feel to them, thanks mostly to the fancy embellishments I’m sure 🙂

love greeting cards 2016 – Perfect For Me

I am not the biggest fan of quotes on things, but sometimes they just seem to work. Especially when you add glitter glue to them… (You can’t see it well in the photo but the second PERFECT has glitter glue on it.)

love greeting cards 2016 – minis!

Here are some mini cards I did, gift tag size. I suppose they could go with a bottle of wine for a friend, or a hunk of metal and jewels for that special someone ? 😉 They were fun to make because although the small size was a bit limiting they felt so complete with…

love greeting cards 2016 – white edition

Here are a few more from this years batch: I was happy to work with the blues and greens, which I think are still romantic colours. It is a change from the pink and red, and might go over better with those who tend to shy away from those colours 🙂

love greeting cards 2016 – kraft edition

Kraft card stock selection of this years Valentine’s Day greeting cards. These ones are kind of light on the embellishments, but sometimes there is something to be said for simplicity. My favourite is the second one. The inked edges really add to the”old-timey” feel of it. I had been looking for a reason to use…

love greeting cards 2016 (small)

Here are some more love/Valentine’s Day/wedding/anniversary cards. These ones are 5″ x 3.25″, which turned out to be such a cute size. They are just 5″x6.5″ cards cut in half and I feel they turned out great. It was an opportunity to use some of the extra envelopes I always seem to end up with!…

Valentine’s Day 2016 – ivory edition

I made quite a few Valentine’s Day cards this month and want to share some of them with you. They mostly have two colour palettes, teal/green and red/pink. I admit I was trying to use up some materials I had been holding on to for quite a while, and yet some of them still seem…
