Some different techniques to take your cards to another level

Hello everyone, I have been working on cards this last week.  I need to replenish my stock at a cute little store in town where I sell my cards, so I thought I would share some of them with you.  I wan t to give credit to a book that I have fallen in love with, also.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I had to order it on line, and wait for it to come, but it was everything I anticipated, and more.  I bet you are wishing I would just get on with it....what is the name of this wonderful book??? Origami Card Craft, by Karen Elaine Thomas.  I know, some of you may be saying, "Origami, I tried that once and it is too complicated for me",  but trust me, these are fairly simple and very well explained and illustrated.  I have some examples of my favorite one, and there are many more.

30 cards and envelopes that will add a third dimension to your cards, along with places to tuck in small gifts, pictures, and lots of space to stamp and embellish.  I think you will fall in love as I have.  You can visit Karen at www.karenelaine.com and www.origamicardcraft.com.
