Handmade Greeting Cards

Well, it is close to Christmas, and my card making is starting to wind down. I have made several, and during the process, changed my approach to them. I started using markers to illustrate them, instead of the colored pencils, and liked the bright colors better! I also have a couple of regular "all occasion" cards I finished up for you to see as well.

These were really easy to make. First I sketched a simple design with pencil (lightly), then went over it with black permanent marker. I then shaded in spots with a gray marker, then went back over everything with the markers in the colors I had chosen for each part. Shading with the gray marker really gavit it more depth, and I liked it much better. As a last touch, I used a ruler and a marker to go around the edges and give it a border of coordinating color on the white part on most of them. try your hand at a few of these-that way you will never be without a card when you need one for someone! Happy creating!
