Amy from Tsuruta Designs re-posted the first card she ever put on her blog, and challenged readers to do the same. Now, before you see it, I want to remind you of how terrible the photography was (I'm sure in the future I'll say the same thing about the pics I take now once I get a "real" camera and learn how to take photos!). The card itself I actually like, and am not ashamed. Here it is:
You can also check out that first post here. The card was also featured on the Cards blog, the first challenge I ever entered, which is why I made this blog in the first place. Look at all the designers featured here, (mine is Thank You by Jennifer Rzasa), then look up 3 names. WOW! Amy Tsuruta! Isn't that weird! Especially since I first started following her blog last week. Who knew my first blog experience was shared with her as well!
Now you're in for a real treat. I will boldly show you the first card I ever made. Well, not ever- I know as a kid I made a lot of cards for my parents, and made cards at school, etc. But it was the first card I made as an adult (I was 21) when I first started paper crafting 5 years ago.
Where's the focal point? (there is none)
Where's the sentiment? (there is none)
Where's the creativity? (umm....the colors?)
I apparently liked vellum at the time- it's the only thing that actually made it onto the card! At the time, I think I knew it wasn't a great card, which is why I saved it and never gave it to anyone. Oh well- you've gotta start somewhere!
