Yesterday, Steve and I finished the 110 cards!!
After the printing was completed, I had to decide on the coloring,
I tried lots of combinations, alcohol markers, ink pens, pencils, nail polish, and glitter pens. One thing I did not want to do was create too much drama with the coloring,
I wanted the word to be the focal point.
I also had a loaf of oat bread fresh out of the oven:
I used an Organic Whole Wheat Oat flour mix, 25 lbs runs about 20.00 on Amazon and it makes the best all around bread I have ever had!!
So we ate that with Jam, and worked :)
Steve folded and Scored, I colored.
Here are two cards attached to their bases. The card on the left I did a lot of coloring with pencils and while I liked it very much I had to keep in mind this was this years Christmas cards and doing all that coloring on 110 cards would make this card a contender for next year. So I went with the card on the right, I kept it simple.
The finished card with a silver lined envelope.
These cards are 5x7 in size.
I used a hefty Strathmore 110# deckle edge paper for the base. This paper looks like cold pressed watercolor paper, a beautiful texture adds to the simple-ness of the card. The red layer is a glossy textured red paper that feels like cloth as it is a book binding paper! The black layer is a simple mat black paper.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your day!!
