These are a few more cards I made this week. Like I mentioned, I find it to be a fantastic activity to de-stress. Judging by the number of cards I am making, you can imagine how stressed I must be!
You can see my whole collection of cards here. Many of them are sold.
Most handmade cards sell for anywhere between Rs.100/- and Rs.250/- depending on the amount of work involved.Check out some handmade cards made by some talented people here
As a thank you to my blog-readers I am giving away the cards I made. They are blank inside (so you can write all that you have to say) and they all come with envelopes. On the back it says ' handmade by Preeti Shenoy'. :) (I designed them myself--I ought to get full credit, no? :))
The first two cards will be given to one person and the second two to another person.
What do you have to do to win these cards?
Just leave me a comment! That's all!
Choose a number between 1 and 100 when you leave a comment. I shall use the random number generator to pick two people each of who will get two cards each. The cards will be mailed in a hard cover envelope and will reach you in mint condition :) Please scroll up the comment box and choose a number which someone else hasnt already chosen. In case there is a clash, I will just pick a winner by draw of lots.
I liked this design a lot. I made it with really thin quilling strips and I wanted to use colours that stood out. I had no idea what I was making when I started quilling the deep red strips. This is what I ended up with. Nice? :) Do you like?
I felt happy with this too. The orange roses contrast so starkly with the deep green paper. The white butterfly with a detail of beads completes the picture. It radiates serenity--don't you agree?
This is a long card with textured paper. I wanted to use three different coloured paper quilled roses. I think they have combined well, isn't it?
They stand out well against the grey paper which I have used as a back-ground.
You can be sure of one thing. When you send a hand-made card to someone, it will be a long long time before the card ends up in the dust-bin ;-) They are made with such care, after all, and sent with a lot of love too :)
So if you want them, go ahead, pick a number and leave me a comment.
Shall declare who won the cards on the last day of this 30 day blog marathon. (today is day 23).
Good luck! :) [I am so nice to my readers, am I not? :) But then, how can I not be! You guys shower me with so much love! ]
