Thinking of making cards....

Postby Jenifer » 12 Jan 2014, 19:09

I had a go at card making a fair while ago now, but never made anything i was pleased enough with to take it any further. So, if I may, I'd like to ask for opinions on these... Honest remarks, positive, negative, anything really please lol!

Hi Jenifer,
Lovely cards!
Can I make a small suggestion?
Could you cut the paper with the artwork on square, with the art work centred in the middle? It would just make it a little neater and more professional looking.
Other than that I think the designs are delightful.

Hi and thanks for the comments. Cosmic Ash, I totally agree with you yes! To be honest these were to see what folk thought before committing to making them seriously. Now I've had good feedback both here and on other boards, I have the confidence to continue. Many thanks to both of you for your help, it's nerve wracking showing stuff to folk, but my Bardic course is inspiring me so I am listening :hug:
