Not so hard to make a card

Hello all, and welcome... though I'm about to send you away again immediately!  I'm so happy you enjoyed the Brave and True Butterflies, and today I'm over at A Vintage Journey with a Creative Card Making post.  Regulars will know I almost never make cards.  For some reason I find them very difficult.


But for this one I've adapted techniques from the tag I was inspired to make by Jennie at Live the Dream.  Borrowing all that inspiration meant that making the card wasn't all that hard after all.  I hope you'll be able to hop over to A Vintage Journey to see my Creative Card Making there.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting all!

Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her: but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game.

I never make cards, but if I could make one like yours, I would make them all the time. I love the texture, the crackle paste, the butterfly tape, and the lace. This is an exceptional card, dear Alison.

Oh my this is beautiful Alison! All the layers of wonderful (complimentary) textures resulted in a gorgeous card. Every 'bit and bob' has a perfect place~ Love love the crackle. And those little negative pieces from the punching; so creative! Love your work, your style : ) Hugs, karen o

What a lovely card! That it is flat enough to mail is a bonus. The lace both paper and fabric really caught my eye.
