As I type, it is still Wednesday in Portland, so this ought to count as a W.I.P. post, right? Right. For the past several years, I have been very into making my own cards to give away to family and friends. This post is dedicated to the art of card making (briefly and quickly).

The essential tools:

paper12

Stacks of colored and patterned paper

tools12

Pens, pencils, crayons, markers, paintbrushes, scissors, glue, and paints

pencil-sharpener2

A good quality pencil sharpener

The above tools are helpful in creating stuff like this:

hoots

Hoots on a branch

fishies

Fishies

whale

More birds

That’s the joy of card making!
