During my recent "rest" period....I had an onslaught of birthdays....some of which I am still to catch up on!!! One thing I did do whilst resting was sketch a LOT of card layout ideas. One of them is featured here.
One of the secretaries I use to work with had a birthday in early March. I had intended to do her a suitcase (as shown in my previous post), but alas ran out of time adnd steam. I HAD the chocolates...just not the wrapping...so what to do??? I had made some fridge magnet calendars for the gals at work, so I co-ordinated what I had.......and this is what greeted her for ther birthday......
If all else fails....use cellophane!!!! True...not as intriguing as a suitcase, but I still think it looked ok...for a last ditch OMG....what-am-I-gunna-do effort. As you can see...T have done a diagonal cut for the DP and edged it with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch. Just adds that bit of interest I think.
It is also no secret that I LOVE (as most do) the Bliss stamp set. There is such detail in the flourish and the butterfly as seen here....
Margaret DID love her pressie (phew). You will see quite a few of this card's layout over the coming weeks...as I miscalculated and actually got DOUBLE the amount I needed as (dah) you get 2 cards from the one rectangle!!
