Two more greeting cards

I am making some more greeting cards.
But, these might not go to the shop. I want some to give to my family and friends right?
Since I took the courage to add handmade cards to my shop, I am taking the courage to give some to the people close to me. 
Hope, they will like it.
You can see in the picture, where light is coming from. That is a great problem with my photos. 
I need to have a photo box, you can see. I tried many methods but, I got the yellow cast with the box I made. This one without the box is better in picking up the real colours. 

 I used inside of a regular envelope to make the background on the above one.

Christmas Cards

I started working on Christmas projects early, you might think.
But, actually I am not early at all...
That is one of the things with owning an Etsy shop.
My stuff must be out when the customers started thinking of Christmas. Otherwise, the things I make are not going to be reaching my customers before Christmas.
Interesting, right?
Here is a new card added to shop today

I used acrylic paint to make the green background. Other things are just stickers.

It is looking great.  If you want to make one, it is an easy DIY card project.
Just paint the cardstock with the paint. Then add otherwise blah looking sticker on top of it.
Add your greetings or just stamp a message.

Embroidery hoop project.

 I bought three 6 inch embroidery hoops. 
Used embroidery floss and stitched a grid like,
This is going to be on the wall of my little nest. 
I am going to have 3 of those as a group.
Still I have to do the back of the hoop.

Recycling for a change.

I was so much in to card making for some time. 
I got a lot of 2013 calendars. They were almost thrown out. Good that I got them before they were gone...
I was thinking over and over about re-using them. You know, the pictures are soooo good to just cut them. 
So, they became envelopes.

I made few bunches of them. If anybody interested in buying, they are listed on my Etsy shop.If you want to make them, and don't know how to, then i am thinking of running a tutorial on it soon.

Mixed media and butterflies

I learned to crochet butterflies. Now, I  am interested in making media as you know. So, to have a small canvass, i started making greeting cards.
Now, I have butterflies and mixed media together. 

I am thinking of adding some of them to my Etsy shop. If I get sales, then I can have some important things I am drooling over. When I searched for Mixed Media greeting cards, one of my cards came in the first page itself. That is amazing. Ya! to myself.
Have you ever tried making mixed media greeting cards? It is fun. 
Just remember not to add a lot of water unless you are using mixed media paper.

 There is one more card with butterfly, which i have to take a picture.
Two of the above cards are added to my etsy shop. Incase you want to buy one to say Hi to someoe you love...
