Today I'm here with a card set for you guys! In the days following our arrival from the hospital with our newest addition, we received quite a few gifts of congratulations. Knowing that I would be home for quite a few weeks before seeing any of our family and friends who sent the generous gifts, I decided to make some cards to send out. I could handle that, right?! Just create some cards while the kids are both napping...easy!! Ha. Little did I know that schedules would not always work as I would like but more than that, my crafting mojo had decided to hibernate on me. This was not ok with me so I started to just try things out. When I tell you that I had 3 different cards started with no idea where to go with any of them, I'm not joking. I was generally a pretty messy crafter before, while supplies stacked on top of each other and it didn't bother me and some how I knew where everything was. But after baby #2, something changed in me and I couldn't handle the distraction. Onto clearing off and cleaning my desk top. Once I did that, I started a new card but with something I was comfortable with... distress ink blending background.
So after that long story, I came up with this card set. The ink blended background for a set of cards does take a little time but I didn't mind. I was just happy to be creating again! So onto the video as to how I created these cards. I apologize if I'm a little scattered in my voice over, it's been a very long time since I've done one.
