Cool Dude cards!


Jeg bruker sjeldent å lage kort-serier eller helt like kort, men man sparer mye tid på å male flere like motiv samtidig, og finne frem stempler, ark og stæsj som går i samme stil... Skal prøve på å gjøre det oftere, også fordi det er moro å se hvor ulike kortene alikevel kan bli! 
Husker dere disse fargerike Basic Grey arkene? Hadde et gledelig gjensyn da jeg fant dem godt bortgjemt.. trodde de var brukt opp for flere år siden! :)
 Congratulations ... to a tough guy!

I seldom create card-series or duplicate cards, but you can really save alot of time by coloring several of the same stamp-motif at once, and finding similar style embellies, papers, dies and stamps. It's fun to see how different the cards ended up beeing! :)
Do u guys remember theese Basic Grey papers? It was a happy surprise to find them in my paperstash, as I thought them used up years ago! The cool dude stamp is also an oldie, it's one of the first I bought when I started going from just wooden-mounted to ez-mounted rubbers ca.2007! 

I often do a tag to follow the card if it's meant for a celebration/birthday, and with theese cards I also decorated the envelopes!
