I am Posting my blog at 2:30 am EST , Why? I don't know I keep asking my self why I'm up making kiddie cards at 2:30 am - Even Hallmark which is 15 miles away is closed!! My Dog is up because I am up, the cat is sitting on something in here I will be working on next, and I am typing. No wait I am keyboarding, Typing is something I failed at about 30 years ago.
I have a big order to produce which requires a start up for a local store, I need to have about 150 cards for all occasions ready for next week, and then a couple dozen for another local shop also next week. This is good!
Tonight I started making a batch of baby cards, first welcome and then birthday. I've got the birthday done, and all the parts of the welcome baby cards they need to be assembled.
So that is what is on my work desk, baby cards!
First the card bases in baby colors, I'll explain the giraffe cards in a minute....
Die cut flowers with the ebosser machine. I love this machine, it is an electronic embossing and die cutting machine, large 9x13 platform and can take any die or embossing system. It sells for under 200.00 , I've had it since September and use it every day, no learning curve and no problems! I started embossing with a pasta machine, up graded to a wizard, then to a grand caliber. I have hand issues so with all the cards I make, all that cranking was crippling. I love the ease of the electronics! I do have a wizard tucked on a shelf for workshops here and on the go. I'm not going to be toting the big ebosser around with me!
Die cut banners on the eCraft, the eCraft is great for cutting labels and tags but for more intricate work, not so good. I've had my machine for 2+ years with a few problems that the company took care of, no hassle. I would love to cut paper lace, but with this machine it won't happen. It has however cranked out thousands of labels and non detailed cuttings.
First round of baby cards, when I am done with this group there will be about 40
I made a dozen of these because I really am not a fan of pastels and after doing 75 pastel bases, I had to do something in colors I liked!
Thanks for stoping by and I hope you have a great day!!
