Sounds like a great idea!

You might want to laminate the cards when you finish. Are there different thicknesses of lamination? I think you'd want something pretty thin so that the cards still have a playing card-y feel to them.

I have seen themed Uno sets with various characters - that would be another fun one to do.

The only way I can think of would be to cut the paper into long triangles or other shapes and then decoupage.

How about a small stamp repeated across the top and bottom (in contrasting colors?) - or stamped across the bottom with a larger matching/contrasting stamp in the upper left corner? The second option would work nicely with a large initial and a small stamp that illustrates something about the person. Just a couple of ideas! Of course, this would work with a layout that you print out also.

Actually, what would be kind of neat would be a complete matching set with paper, envelopes, maybe some hand-designed pre-stamped postcards, and some "business" cards with your friend's new address/phone no. Then just decorate a box...put in a nice fountain pen...

OK, it sounds like this is a project I'll have to try, too!

I like them, too.

My guess is that they are cardstock printed with a pattern and folded into an envelope shape without a flap? Is there a closure?

When I lived in Germany, many people were into "Seidenmalerei" - that was a couple of years ago! What are the popular crafts now?


Yeah "Seidenmalerei" was a couple of years ago. I think 2 or more years ago "Window color" was very popular and now it is "Serviettentechnik" and "Lampen aus Lichterketten" (don't know how to translate it Wink )


Ich denke, ich lebte in D-land am Ende des Seidenmalereitrends . Ich erinnere mich auch an "Window Color". Was ist aber Serviettentechnik?

Hallo,

This is my first post!

I am American and live in the Chicago area right now, but spent 5.5 years in Germany (Muenster/Wf., Freiburg i. Br. and Mainz) and a year in Austria (Kaernten - it's beautiful! Took me a while to understand people, though!)

I have 2 kids - the older one was born in Mainz (a Meenzer Maedsche) - and work as a freelance German>English translator. Crafting is my hobby - mainly beading and decoupage right now, but I dabble in a lot of things. It helps me get "out of my head" after a long day alone in front of the computer.

I really have a taste for a Laugenbroetchen or a piece of Streuselkuchen and a coffee. Mmmmm, thinking of Gruene Sosse - anyone from Frankfurt?

You guys are making me "home"sick for Germany!
