    Does anyone else like to make their own cards? I’ve never attempted to make cards for Christmas, but this year I’m going to try it! Since I have so many to make, I’m hoping to get started soon. ^-^

    Anyone else like to make cards?? If so, it might be fun to share how they turn out with each other! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ooh! Me! I do!

    I love card-making and have already made twelve Christmas cards for this year.

    @the-fledgling-artist Last Saturday, as in the 17th, but it only took me the morning and half the afternoon. What kind of Christmas cards do you make and with what mediums?

    @evelyn Well, in the past I’ve used watercolors, colored pencils, and markers for making cards.. I’m not quite sure what I’ll be using for my Christmas cards though. Maybe I can share some pictures once they’re done. ^-^ย  What about you?

    @the-fledgling-artist Neat! I thought you might make cards that way, and no wonder I’m faster. I use stamps and embossing tools to make mine which look good, but take no time at all. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @evelyn Oh that’s really cool! I actually just finished carving a stamp to use on wrapping paper. I thought about using it on cards, but I don’t think it came out quite good enough for that. Do you carve your own stamps? Or are they purchased?

    @the-fledgling-artist You carved your own stamp??? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Yeah, no I don’t do that. xD

    @evelyn Yeah! It’s really fun, but also kind of hard. xD My stamps tend to come out kind of messy. I think I’m just a little bit too impatient with them.ย  ย Where do you buy your stamps? If I may ask. ^-^

    Me! I do!

    *waves hand wildly*

    Me and my sisters used to be huge into card making…in fact we had a room designated just for making cards. I haven’t done as much recently, but I hope to do some for this Christmas.

    Wow! That’s so cool that you make your own stamps!!!!

    I usually buy mine at Hobby Lobby or Goodwill. You can probably get them at Michael’s and other craft stores.

    Um… yes!

    I love making cards so much, you guys!


    @the-fledgling-artist
    I don’t carve stamps, but that sounds amazing!ย  I’d love to see some sometime!


    @evelyn
    I second Eden!ย  Please!

    I typically use scrapbook paper and I hand write my letters.ย  That’s incredible fun, especially with gel pens and special writing utensils. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I also recently experimented with crocheting chains and making designs.ย  It turned out great!ย  And I love using ribbon.ย  And glittery things.ย  They make me happy ๐Ÿ˜€ย  I have my own card-making business…my specialty hobby.ย  So…

    Yeah, I love making cards!

    @the-fledgling-artist I buy my stamps from Hobby Lobby, which is my favorite store of all time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Then I also have some that were gifted to me… I’m not sure where they are from.


    @eden-anderson
    A whole room just for cardmaking??? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Can I come?? *giving you the begging look*

    ๐Ÿ˜‰


    @libby
    You have a cardmaking business? That’s really neat! Is it an online business?

    And yes, I can send you guys a picture later! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @eden-anderson Wow, a whole room?? That sounds so fun! You and your sister must be very serious about card-making!


    @libby
    Maybe I can post a picture of it later. ^-^ You have a business? That’s so cool! How long have you had it?


    @evelyn
    If I had a Hobby Lobby near me I would be too weak to resist buying the entire store. xD
