Handmade Cards!

Giving and receiving handmade cards is the best! 
I love it when someone sends me a card they made.
 
 
Cards made with Arnold Grummer's Papermill Kit, AlteredPages.com collage sheets and Craft Attitude™ printable film!
 
I love the reaction I get from people when I tell them I made the paper! Then when I tell them most of the paper is made from paper in my shredder they are amazed!  

Here are two BIRD cards, all papers used are handmade using the Arnold Grummer's Papermill Kit
The papers used were made from scarps of leftover papers that were any color of yellow and any color of green.  These are the results I got. On some bits of  Arnold Grummer's Iridescent Flakes and Arnold Grummer's Gold Dust were added.
For the card base fold one sheet of hand made paper in half using the ScorPal.  When using the Arnold Grummer's Papermill Kit your sheets of paper will be approximately 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches. Then rip paper for the panel on the card. To do this lightly fold the paper where you want it to rip and dampen it lightly with water so you have control of the paper while ripping. 
I printed some of my AlteredPages.com collage sheets on Craft Attitude with my inkjet printer. On the ink side of the film apply glue stick and adhere to the panel.
One of the cards has Gel Medium painted over the picture panel. 
Add a bit of ribbon and adhere the panels to the base, you have beautiful cards for any occasion.
