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.
