500 Cards in 3 Years

May was my 3-year card-making anniversary. I feel fortunate to have had as much time over the past 3 years as I have to spend time on this hobby and increase my skills. Someday I’ll share some of my earliest cards because wow, there’s such a difference. It’s neat to look back and see how far I’ve come and how much I’ve been able to learn.

When I realized I was coming up on 500 cards I worked quickly to reach that milestone at my 3-year mark. 500 cards is a lot! I’m slowly getting to the point where I’m proud of more of my cards for a longer period of time, before my skills increase and they’re “outdated” skills-wise. But I still have so many ways to improve.

I put together a card-making video for the first time ever to commemorate the occasion. I have no fancy video setup so the quality does not compare to more professional videos but here it is:

And here’s the completed card:
