"Hello" card // Cardmaking

I've been trying so hard to get into card making. I enjoy it, I really do. I just feel like my cards are...well...not that great. Layouts usually come easy to me because I have such a big canvas to work with. Cards, however, just don't offer enough room for all that I want to cram on there. I guess another problem is I don't exactly have very many 'card making' supplies. The majority of my papers and embellishments are more made for layouts. However, practice makes perfect, right?
The base of this card is a craft card stock, though you can't see it because it's been covered with lovely layers. The layers consist of papers from several different companies/lines - Crate Paper's Fourteen collection, Echo Park's Sweet Day collection, My Little Shoeboxes' Happy Go Lucky collection, Studio Calico's Heyday collection, and a page from my pink Smash Book by K&Company. The scalloped edge at the top is from Crate Paper's Little Bo Peep collection.
The chipboard flower is from October Afternoon's Woodland Park collection, and the wood veneer "Hello" shape is from Freckled Fawn. The enamel dots are from My Minds Eye.

And don't forget you still have one day left to enter in the giveaway I'm holding! Check the details out here!
Thanks for taking a peek!

  10. I can totally relate to your thoughts about card making. But I don't think my cards come out nearly as lovely as yours did!
