I had three custom orders to get done before Christmas. One lady ordered 40 cards......4 boxes of 10. And then she ordered a box of 10. She asked for simple basic cards with Thinking Of You, Get Well, Happy Birthday, With Sympathy and Congratulations. I loved the challenge and tried to use as many different papers, images and embellishments as possible. I really enjoyed this challenge and pushed myself to use up all the paper that I had already cut. It is amazing what one can create with bits and pieces!
I had so many drawers from my supply closet out. There were trays, boxes and folders of every kind of ribbons, brads, rhinestones, and stickers.
I used this field of flowers stamp 2X. The first time I used a Kaleidacolor ink pad to stamp several times to get this layered effect. Then on the next card, I used black ink for a silhouette look.
The striped background paper on this card really made a beautiful card for the blue panel with the white embossed "Congratulations". The little gold butterflies adorning the corners was a great finishing touch. My customer was very pleased with all 50 of her cards.
