Oh don't be scared of them!! They are mini scrapbook pages without photos! You take a card sketch or shrink down a scrapbook page sketch to fit on a card. Where the picture would go you stick the image!! Try one I think you will find out how easy they are and great chance of pace!! Good luck.

I am seriously petrified of doing cards. I think because I know a card is for someone else and my scrap pages are for me, so I judge my cards way more harshly and never feel they are worthy of being sent to someone.

I love looking at the cards in the gallery here, though. So much creativity and so much inspiration....for my lo's.

Oh I am one person who loves getting handmade cards and will be surprised on how many people actually do. If that is the cause, make a card to where it would be something you would love to receive. Like your scrapbook layouts, over time you will enjoy them more and want to do more of them.

Off to make cards, I am feeling inspired.

I agree. Just try one, like the sketch. The sketch this month is pretty simple. I have been making cards for at least 6+ years. Back at the beginning my cards were every simple, but just like with scrapping I have learned new techniques and love to experiment. Just like with scrapping I have learned to look at a sketch, a lo or a card and make it work to my abilities, style and supplies.

No pressure, just try one.

On the color challenge can it have cream in their too? I didn't know if cream would be counted as a shade of white?

If it is closer to white than brown it should be fine.
