Christmas 1836

Vintage Christmas

I was recently selected to join the design team of a new challenge site called Friendship’s Garden Challenges.  Prior to becoming a team member, I won one of their challenges and was awarded a Guest Designer Spot.  This is my card for that challenge.  Friendship’s Garden is a non-stamping site.  Although I love stamping, I really prefer to make cards using paper and embellishments only.  Most of the time, I don’t put sentiments on my cards unless it is required by the challenge!  I think my experience with designing cards for corporations and designing wedding stationery helped to make me more of a paper crafter than a stamper…I mean you can’t stamp Tilda on a wedding invitation.  The companies for whom I created corporate social stationery tended toward more elegant stationery.  Most of my stamps were flourishes, flowers, etc.  But most of my design was done in Corel Draw and Photoshop.  

Friendship’s Garden has bi-weekly challenges.  I would love to see your work there!  C-YA

About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!
