I do my best to comply.
My mother called last week asking for birthday cards to send to her former coworkers. She retired as a dental hygienist last fall and moved out of state, so she wants to do something nice to stay connected with her friends. Here's the first card I made for her...very different from my usual style, but very appropriate for the southern ladies who will receive it.
Here's the inside. Dark cards really do need a liner.
Working outside my usual style every now and then is so much fun, especially when I know that I'm not sending the card. I adore these Anna Griffin stamps, which work so well on this style of card, but I need to challenge myself to use them on a more "LateBlossom" style card. Even so, this card is pretty simple (note the only embellishment is ribbon and the layout is pretty clean), and I really do like how blush blossom and bravo burgundy look together.
I tied the bow with my new Bow Easy, courtesy of Bahb. It's a great little tool, and it didn't take me long to figure it out.
