Card Making


My style of card making is collage. I'm always on the look out for things to re-purpose and I love to swoop when Craig is clearing out his wardrobe. He wears his work clothes till they are rags, so the only pieces worth salvaging are the labels and buttons.

Have you ever noticed how beautiful some labels are? Some of them are small works of art in their own right. Gets me to wondering about the people who must have the job of "label designer". Someone has to design the size and colours, the decorative motifs and the information.

The card above also includes some of the inner-pocket calico type fabric which had worn quite soft and thin as you would imagine, and I was able to stamp right onto it.

  1. How cool is that! I never would have realized that the objects were labels from clothing. Very creative. We don't buy commerically made cards anymore, make our own for all occasions. But they are not as good as your.
