Not all cards we send are for happy events, birthdays or congratulations. A handmade card can say more than words when sent for a different event; sympathy or just a simple Thinking of You. This past week we got some slightly scary news about my grandfather, who at 94 has already battled cancer once and is now having to undergo tests to see if its come back. My grandfather lives 300 miles from me, but has been a massive part of my life, I spent many many days and weeks at his house when I was very small. I really need to get my backside in the car to go and see him, but trying to get a few days off with James to go is tricky. So, I’m made him a card…. now I just need to work out what I’m going to write in it!
I’ve been trying to find a card for this bird for a while. Its a stunning image, but it’s so pretty and detailed I needed to find a card that could really let it sing. All the images in Picture Perfect are designed to be stamped in several different layers, and I’ve used 4 different inks on this bird; Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Lost Lagoon and Island Indigo. I will admit that the layers aren’t stamped perfectly, but I really don’t think it matters, it’s still gorgeous!
I’m still trying to work my way through my mountain of Designer Series Paper, and I managed to get a goodly sized piece on this card. The Matt behind the layer of Very Vanilla card stock is a piece of Designer Series Paper from Farmers Market, just that fabulous pop of yellow really sets off the simplicity of the card.
