I recently made this card to send off to my mom.
But once I got it done it was so bright and cheerful, I hated to have it for a one time use. So I scanned it and then printed it out on another piece of blank card stock to send her.
Then I got the idea for this card.
I drew out the design in pencil, water colored the background in 3-4 shades of blue and then colored in the yellow with Sharpies. It turned out well (at least for me) and I scanned it also.
Then, in a fit of brain power (and seeing the zip lock bag of old stamps which had fallen off the shelf onto the floor), I made this card.
I dumped a lot of stamps onto of my scanner and scanned the page and then printed it out.
But since they are all color ink intensive, what do I do? I take them to Office Max and have them print them out. For for $1 a page I get this….
(Oh, at the top, the blue with the heart and skull is my new pencil bag from Borders which I got for $1 and some Paperchase tissue paper for $1.)
I have an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet to write a note on, then folding them over and sealing like a tri-fold card. Now if I can just get all my letters written.
