This card is the very first project in the first volume of the Encyclopedia of Craft. Dave's birthday was last week, so it was a more than appropriate project to begin with. It suggests using construction paper but, I used card-stock instead. It was a little hard to fold, but a little bone folder picked up the slack. I should have picked up a glue stick because all I had was spray adhesive and it made an awful mess.
I used the eraser stamping technique from my birthday planning post to make the front of the card. Excuse my lousy penmanship.
For the inside, I followed the tutorial almost exactly. I added more eraser stamps and little wings made with scalloping shears.
It was fun to step outside of my comfort zone. I almost never make anything out of paper and it gave me an excuse to buy a few new supplies (a stamp pad and the bone folder).
I'm really excited about finally working with these books and I can't wait to share more vintage crafts!!!
Do you ever give handmade cards?
