I can count the total number of cards I've made and shared on one hand,
I'm not sure why I find card-making so intimidating.
It seems simple, on the surface --
a few scraps, maybe a stamp, a couple of letters,
maybe a little stitching here and there.
When making cards, though, I don't really feel
the same satisfying "click"
that I feel when creating layouts.
Maybe it's because cards need to remain simple,
and I tend to work in layers.
Cards seem to involve a "cleaner" process,
and I am all about the mess.
In any case, whatever the reason for my card-phobia,
I pushed through yesterday
in order to create a baby shower card for a family friend.
I used some Studio Calico stamps
as well as bits and pieces from past SC kits.
I riffed on an idea that I'd seen way back when
on the Kenner Road blog,
piecing together strips and sewing over them.
Amazingly, the mommy-to-be liked it! She really liked it!
So maybe I'll attempt another card again,
and start counting on my other hand.
