Who appreciates your handmade cards most? Is it your girlfriends, children or the men in your life? I'd have to say that my most appreciative audience are female & interested in some sort of crafting - it doesn't have to be papercrafting or stamping.
Naturally, they're the ones I most enjoy making cards for too.
In the new annual Stampin' Up! catalogue there are two paper stacks with 48 sheets of paper measuring 11.4cm by 16.5cm (about the size of a card front). One is Moonlight, which has been so popular that it is currently on backorder in Australia. The other is All Abloom, which has provided three of the four strips at the top of this card. They've been cut in varying widths and layered. I chose my colours from the floral piece (Strawberry Slush, Blushing Bride and Pistachio Pudding) and used Starburst Sayings, Petite Petals and And Many More to stamp.
I do have a recipient in mind for this card. It is so much easier when you know who you are making the card for!!!!
Then I had the sweet sketch at Sunday Stamps to kick-start my imagination and ...voila! (I watched Two Days In Paris last night, love an English/foreign language film) my card is done. Yes...it is okay to rotate the sketch.
Very happy to report that this card was a Sunday Stamps Top Pick!
