When I checked on Sunday, they were almost all gone, as are the batch of birthday cards I set out. I suspect I'm going to get sick of making birthday cards, but there it is. Our little shop has now made well over $400 for our church. Not bad for a little 2-bit operation! Thanks to Lisa I. and Eva for their contributions, which have been so well received!
Anyway, today's cards were made weeks ago, so I can't remember exactly which of the brown and blue pins on my Color My World board on Pinterest I used (might have been this one), but I love both the cards and how using very different stamps and mostly the same colors can yield very different results.
|Snowflake Serenade (Papertrey) |
and sentiment (unknown wood mounted rubber)
|Gracious Vases and Keep It Simple sentiment (Papertrey)|
The different feel of random lacey snowflakes falling down the card versus lined-up, solid block vases is amazing. One card is loose and free, and the other is very formal and intentional. When I'm sick, I'd sure love to return to everything feeling neat and tidy, you know?
I did add a few more shades of brown to the second card, which lightens it up and adds variety to the vase arrangement, making it much more interesting in its static order.
And now I'm off to bed.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
