Creating cards from scratch and can be a little tedious as you work through from start to finish. I find that the more I know the person I am making the card for, the better the result. This card is a collection of many pieces. This may seem problematic, but when you find the right stuff and pull it all together, it makes a marvelous experience for me and the recipient. This card is created first as a decorated panel, then the panel is matched with a card color and easily completed. I will often make up to 10 front panels and then complete the cards as the last step. Love the colors and shine in this one.
