I’m back with another card share. Truth be told, I’m going to need a surge of creativeness for finding pictures for my blog. I rely so heavily on nature photos, but I’m already shown lots of winter ones. And right now it’s such a snow fortress that you can’t even find anything poking up from the snow to provide a point of contrast. The snow is so deep in the front that you could start drilling ice cores and making stunning observations about the weather. “Oh yes, looks like a very wet winter. 8″ last week…. 12″ today… mm hmm… it’s definitely winter.” So I’ll show you the card I made tonight for a work friend’s baby shower tomorrow. Fortunately I remembered this evening, so I had time to get something put together before the event! So pleased was I with how it turned out, I’ve decided to share this one too. Oddly enough, the stamps are from a Valentine’s set by Recollections that were out on my workspace from doing Valentine’s cards. And the layout was also one I’ve been using for my Valentine’s cards. I was quite thrilled to use the same design and stamps and get a completely different feel.
And here’s the inside:
And because I have a neurotic condition, the envelopes of all the cards I make must be decorated too, in coordination with the card. I love the bird and branch, so I decided to use that as the focal point on the envelope with a little heart at the top.
Sweet, huh? And let that be a lesson to you – Valentine’s stamps are not just for Valentine’s! It’s also a lesson to not clean up your workspace the night before, because they might come in useful the next night!
Blessings to you,
