So here you are looking at the very first card I ever made! (Thanks to my friend Rennae for saving this beauty. When she decided stamping wasn't for her, she gave me her stamps and supplies! And BTW - her stamps and supplies all fit into one paper grocery sack!)
OMG! The thought just came to me! Do you think this first card of mine card had any influence on her decision not to pursue stamping!?! Sheesh! LOL!
I had used these stamps to make Christmas gift tags and then decided to make cards too.
This card was made when:
- all of my stamps and supplies fit in a single shoebox!
- before I owned embossing powders, markers, DSP, embellishments, paper cutters, and most other "need to have/want/impulse-buying" tools!
- I used a pencil, ruler, and scissor to cut my card stock in half! (I traced a bowl on this card to get the curved edge!)
- I used to stamp on the insides of my cards and sign them, as opposed to the post-its I now use! (My kids signed this card oh so many years ago!)
Here is my updated version of the above card. Hmmm, cutting and coloring tools, DSP,and embellishments seem to have been added to my repertoire since card number one! No stamping on the inside, but DSP was used in place of wide ribbon!
So as they used to say in an old commercial: "you've come a long way baby!"
Bonus! This card also fits the challenge for jingle belles this week!
Off to stamp some more!
