Rediscovering a love of card making

Throughout my life I have tried quite a range of different crafts, and one I used to spend a fair amount of time (and money) on was card making. I think my initial idea was that it was a cheap way to give cards, and then went a bit crazy online and spent way more than I ever would have on cards. I don't feel too bad about this though, as all these things keep and can be used at a later date for more card creations.

Having split my time over the past few years between two different houses, some of my crafting has declined as I haven't had the many tools and random bits and bobs I have accumulated over the years to hand. For my last birthday my parents gave me a nice card making set, and, it being my Gran's birthday next week I thought it was about time I put it to good use.

The box was full of all kinds of goodies; blank cards and envelopes, decoupage pages, gift tags, box templates, basically anything and everything you could want to make lots of adorable cards. I'm pretty pleased with how the card turned out, and definitely plan to get back into this craft.

For anybody who has thought of getting into it, I would recommend buying a set such as the one I was given as it can be a bit daunting choosing what to use the first time, and you can end up spending a lot of money on things you may never use. A set like this makes card making simple and rewarding, and provides all you need to create some lovely cards which I'm sure would be gratefully received.
