Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

More cards for the church

From now on I'll be trying to keep my blog post shorter with the hopes that people may actually read it and not just look at the pictures lol.  I know it's alot of information for me to tell you the process so from now on I'll give that information out to anyone who wants to leave me a comment and ask.  Feel free to ask me anything you would like to know about products used or techniques used.  If I do a special technique I'll probably explain the process or tell you where to find that information.  So, I hope that you like this style much better and please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

This is one of the Thank You for Visiting cards.  It's to give to first time visitors of the church.  We'll have another/different postcard type card to give to second time visitors and so on.  It's up to the preacher who will be getting these cards and how many they will give.  I just make however many he tells me he needs that week.  This week he needed two so that's the two cards I'm showing today.  I don't make many one layer cards so this was a little bit of a challenge but like I've said before, It's good to flex those creative muscles.  I will admit this one took a couple of trys to get it just right but I'm happy with the outcome. 

Here's a shot of the inside of the card with the quote on one side and a place for the preacher to sign on the other side.

This is the second Thank you for Visiting card I made this week.  I will tell you one thing about how I did this:  I used an actual page from a hymnal and just photocopied it and used the copy to make the card.  When I do something like that I almost always print onto card stock instead of printer paper.

This is the inside of that card and it's laid out in the same format as the first card and I believe it uses the same quote and then has room for him to sign on the right. 

Okay, that's the two cards for today.  Hope you enjoyed the shorter post.  I know I did lol.  I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday.  I'll be back tomorrow with another card for you.  Till then, much love and hugs, Amy K.
