About Me

My photo

Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

My DT card:
How adorable is this image from Doodle Garden?  I colored her with my promarkers and fussy cut the image.  I used a frame die cut to mat the image on.  This is my first ever gate fold card.  I don't have a scoreboard yet so this was a bit tricky for me to make.  Hopefully I will get one for my birthday! Anyway, I think it turned out pretty nice for my first time.  I added some yellow glitter to her body. You can't really see it very well in photo. The papers are from my stash.  I added some flowers and gemstones.  I stamped the inside with a birthday sentiment on the inside from a clear set of stamps by Fiskars.  Next time  I think I will add some panels on the inside as well to make it more decorative.

Inside look:




Hugs,

Erin
