I am crazy about doing these Altered Tri-Fold Cards lately. This one I used punch art on it to make a car. I started thinking about how creating cards was like putting a puzzle together. I start with one piece of the puzzle and then I am able to put the other pieces together in my craft room. Sometimes I start with a color scheme, sometimes I start with a stamped image that I want to color, other times I start with a different kind of folding card or a piece of designer paper that I want to use. I always have fun putting the "pieces" together and love to see what the outcome is going to be. Here is a card that depicts that puzzle and creativity. The front page has the punch art car and some puzzle pieces:
The inside also uses the puzzle pieces and a Spellbinders die.
I am 53 years young and have been crafting all of my life. I first starting doing crafts with my mom when I was 5. We did ceramics and entered them in state competitions. I won first place on several of my creations. I have done all different kinds of crafts but have become very addicted to cardmaking over the last 7 years. I love being able to design, create, and work with amazing people all over the world. I am now expanding my crafting to all sorts of things - most of which you will see on this blog over time.
