:: Progress of the D.I.Y card making ::

As the continuation of this, i had started the card making yesterday, 21st April 2009, 6:30pm. Initially, i plan to make 2 cards to participate but it's that not easy to come out on idea how to design the card. Let's see how much time i left after i complete the 1st one.

So, plan to keep track the progress of card making here. I spend alot of "sam si" in making this card, to aim for 1st prize RM100 gift voucher. If (i'm so lucky to win that), i will use that RM100 to buy real presents for my mother as her Mother's Day gift. What a good daughter huh... *blushing**

The theme for my card design is "LOVE". So i will utilize quite alot of love-shaped or love-shaped-alike material for the card design. I will add blink blink as well to make it looks classy and shinning from far. And anyhow, must have 3D look either on the cover or inside the cover. Sounds complicated huh....Hmmmm...i also think the same. But, "ilham" will come and go, when you're in the process of designing and making. I did not draft the card at all, as i can't think of any of them. wtf!!! poor card designer! so, that's the reason why i choose IT. *hahahah* nah~~ IT was not part of my interest also.. Forget it...

Mom is with me when i made this card (as i'm at the hall) so she definitely know i'm making this Mother's Day card for competition. So, she should know she can't own the "beautifully decorated"card, but i do have a plan to design another D.I.Y card for her actual mother's card day. *heheheheh ~ SUPRISE!*

Anyway, below shown is my 1/2 completed 1st Mother's Day card. What do you think? Got chances to win or not? It might not look good from the picture (due to phone camera lighting, and looks dark). But, please comment on the design. Do you find it interesting? *hoping you all to say yes with shining blinking eyes*
