My daughter, Zeenya made these butterflies on black Crayola paper and she used special Crayola pencils that work well on a dark surface. I highlighted the butterflies and flowers with metallic pens. The cut outs were glued on to light blue card stock.
I had my famous charity card sale today... and as always it went off well. I think next time round, I am not going to be nervous any more because the cards seem to sell everytime. I had my table outside near the backyard of the school - it was a hot day and I was a bit miserable because I don't like the sun. It tires me out! But I am always on cloud nine around the time of my sale... I just love selling my cards.
My ten year old lovely daughter made this for fun... and it sold off at one of the charity sales in school. The pink teddies are Sizzix dye cuts and are made from pearlized paper from India. She wrote Happy Birthday with pop up pearl glitter glue. Even though she thought it was not good enough to sell, it went so easily and that was a matter of pride for me...
Even though small children are my big time customers, I am always short of ideas when it comes to crafting cards for boys or men.
This card was made with different textures of paper. I love layering and never seem to tire of it. I sold it my daughter's school family fair to a Japanese lady. I am sure she bought it to send to her son's friend.
Somebody needs to inspire me with cards for boys...
I made this card for Mother's day and a small Japanese girl picked it up at my daughter's school for USD 2/ For some reason children love my cards... must be the colours!
This card is made with punches from Carl craft. The blue paper is handmade from India and so is the pink paper.
I used organza ribbon to lend it a special touch. I simply love bows. The pink checkered ribbon has been recyled from one of my younger daughter's gifts that we received when she was born two years ago.
This card was made on hand made paper from India including the pink and the mauve layers. The heart stickers are 3D stickers I bought from the UK. Sadly I have run out of them. The pop up paint is acrylic pop up fabric paint from India called Fevicryl. I love using it... haven't found anything like it so far.
One of my daughters friends bought it for USD 2/. The profits went to charity.
I quilled the roses with hand made paper from India and stuck them on a layered background. I love the riot of colours - just right for spring.
I sell my cards for charity at my daughter's school and believe me this card sold in no time. It went for USD 3 - though in my heart I knew I could have made more money since there is a lot of hard work!
