DIY CARDS









If you follow me on twitter you would know that I have been talking about making Christmas cards. I always try to make my own cards no matter what the occasion; I am not just trying to save money, trust me it would be easier and less time consuming to just buy them. I like the creativity and thought that goes behind creating a unique card for someone.

This "Mini Card Collection" was inspired by the Bauhaus Art movement. This art is not for everyone, some say it is too simplistic but I find a lot of inspiration in it. If I made these using Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator it would have been 100 times easier and faster, but call me old school. I just love the pleasure of sitting down, with paper, ruler, pencil and going for it. I want to continue to use this blog as a creative outlet and to share ideas, not just Fashion.

  13. Really liked the cards, it's so cool that you make your own cards, I'm sad sometimes that I'm kind of lazy to do that sort of things. :p

  20. These are gorgeous & what a lovely idea too! I'd be thrilled to get such a unique looking card instead of the usual store brought ones! :)
    I totally agree as well, there's nothing better than sitting down & drawing by hand!

  22. I really like this idea. Such cards could be all-occasion.
    I tried to find simple Christmas cards that were still a bit festive. Gave up and purchased the plainest ones I could find. Next year, maybe will make them..
