Card Making Ideas Step by Step

I love to make my own cards and of course search for card making ideas, just like any of you who love to do handmade cards. And as this is a cat website, I figured I might post here my own cat card ideas.

I have to admit I have not had as much time as I would have liked to make my own cards, but it really is a hobby one can do when ever one has an hour or two of spare time. And it is really quite relaxing – when you cut and glue and design your cards, your mind is totally in your project. You have to concentrate on putting that one drop of glue in just the right place… Comparing how each little detail, when put in different places on your card can totally change the feeling and look of your card.

And just like with painting – you have an idea in your mind when you start, and then when you begin working on your card you suddenly notice new ideas popping into your head. So you try new things I did not even think about when you started and the end result can be quite something else than what you originally planned. It really is this surprise element that makes card making so much fun, isn’t it?

And there really is something so satisfying to see a card you made – one of a kind, not a similar one in the world… You want to send such a card to special people.

Some of my friends make their cards only to post to their loved ones, and some are so enthusiastic they bring their cards for sale too – and they always sell. People love the beauty and special feeling of handmade cards.

So here you have some of my card making ideas for cat lovers. I hope they give your creativity a boost.

The idea for this card came when I found a beautiful red maple leaf on the ground. A white cat waiting for a loved one to return.

Leena's Books

Tutankhamun

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh -exhibition on its world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Mr Mummific

An ancient friend of mine, Mr Mummific dictated a book about how he became a mummy - and I was his scribe and artist. The book is available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

On my other website www.ancientagypt101.com he continues his stories about life in ancient Egypt.

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and hazardous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions. 

Find the book at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

The Nephilim Quest Series

The first book in an epic fantasy series based on human mythology. The search for the mythical Watchers, the angels who fathered the Nephilim, the half-angels. A story that moves on three levels - our times, ancient Greece and ancient Egypt. 

Preview Nephlim Quest 1: Shadowhunter online

Perfect. Just perfect. Waking up dead one morning to find you have been evicted from your body by a cursed soul from ancient Egypt. As a result, Nina finds herself in the afterlife, in the Halfway House of those souls who had kicked the bucket prematurely.
