#the100dayproject : handmade card 85/100-2 : smile my friend
this particular sketch is from mft stamps - i love how each week they have both a sketch and a color challenge. speaking of goals for next year as i mentioned in yesterday's post, i am looking forward to participating in more challenges next year - i really enjoy the way that they get me thinking outside the box! for this one, i decided to interpret the vertical lines near the bottom as strips of patterned paper and to turn the card sideways - so you know i had to incorporate a rainbow in one way or another!

today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play and because i'm only *slightly* obsessed with rainbows and all things colorful, i decided to make a small set of cards. each one has the same overall design, as well as the same sentiment. however, each one features a different color patterned paper with diagonal tone-on-tone stripes.

as i've mentioned several times in past posts, birthday cards are some of my favorites to make. they always seem to be some of my best sellers and i think even hallmark would agree that they're one type of card that people send most often. for this reason i like them to be fun, bright and colorful and i hope that they make the recipient's special day a little bit brighter!

in terms of the handmade card for today - the inspiration wheel landed on birthday and i was jazzed to create another card that will soon join the others in the birthday category of my online shop. i've been mentioning that i'll be adding a bunch of cards to the shop over the next few weeks and i plan to add a good amount from the most recent days over the next few days. i'm trying to tackle a few at a time and batch upload them! so thanks for your patience!

as i've mentioned over the last couple days, i have some things in the works coming up. two of these things are virtual online events that i'll be participating in during the end of the month/beginning of december along with a slew of super talented makers. so many shows, festivals and events have been cancelled and i feel like this is the best option for me to try and reach more people while sharing more handmade happiness.
