Flat cards!


Card1


Card 2
 
 
Card3
 
Hello and good afternoon! I've had a little time to craft this week so I thought I'd make a start on the cards I promised my sister, she wants some to sell at her MacMillan Coffee. Morning. I've tried to keep them as flat as possible for posting, as I've discovered in the past that although people may admire the beautiful, flowery, lace  and ribbon cards, they don't want to pay to post them! I had every intention of making some quick 'batch' cards but as soon as I started colouring that flew out of the window! I love the look of coloured pencils on kraft (well I do when other people colour them:)) so I thought I'd have a go...for the 3rd card I went back to my trusty copics!

 I hope you like them!
Have a lovely evening
Chris

Love your colouring on kraft, Chris and this trio of cards is just fab. I know what you mean about flat cards; I've recently started to make more of these as the cost of postage now is bordering on the ridiculous. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Tracey xx

These cards are all so sweet, and I do like how you've colored on kraft paper. I think my favorite is your first card - I like the sentiment, the use of the die cut and the ADORABLE image!
