I went through some old pictures from my computer and I found old pictures from my first handmade cards. I started making cards somewhere around the year 2007. I found handmade paper I had made in a course and I didn't want to throw it away. So I made cards! :) Since that time I haven't bought any cards anymore and all cards I have given or send have been handmade by me.
Today I will start a series, where I present my cards from the year 2007 to the present. Then you can also follow the progress I made during this time. I started with very simple cards and ended up using different techniques in well decorated and colorful cards.
Too bad I didn't take pictures from my first cards. Here's a card from 2007. In the beginning I used only recycled materials like my handmade paper and fabrics from old clothes.
Seuraavana vuonna (kun itsetehty paperi alkoi pikkuhiljaa loppumaan, enkä ollut menossa samalle kurssille enää uudestaan), aloin printtaamaan onnittelutekstit, jotta sain niistä siistimmän näköisiä, kuin olisin ne itse kirjoittanut (vaikka sitäkin tein). Kukkaset oli jostain vanhasta hulahula-kaulakorusta. Paljetteja en muista - ne saattaa olla jopa ostetut! :)
Next year (when the handmade paper started to run out and I knew I wasn't going to the same course again), I started to print the text on the cards to make it look more clean-cut. The flowers are from an old hulahula necklace and the sequins I might have actually bought (I don't remember). :)
Seuraavaksi esittelen kortteja vuodelta 2009. Silloin tein jo paljon enemmän (tai ainakin kuvasin enemmän). :) Minkälainen oli sinun ensimmäinen korttisi?
Next I will present cards from 2009. Then I made already a lot more (or I just have more pictures of them). :) How did your first card look like?
