For the love of crafting : cardmaking & sewing


Crafting is something I would tend to do if I had a good 2 hours to spare. I first got into it when my mother-in-law told me about it 4 years ago  -  I never saw myself as being 'creative' until I discovered I had a natural talent for cardmaking!......The good thing about making your own cards is you can completely design your own verses......you can make them as simple or as elaborate as you want......a handmade card is more 'special' , because a lot of thought has gone into making it

The techniques involved in cardmaking:

Some examples are :
decoupage (3D effect)
iris folding
rubber stamping
tea bag folding

Cardmaking is certainly a hugely rewarding and enjoyable hobby, I'd recommend it to anyone.
There are many good papercraft magazines out there nowadays, that one can pick up if interested in cardmaking .  WARNING:  This hobby is very addictive!!!
