My card today was made for someone I haven’t known for very long and chances are we will probably never meet face to face but she has become a very dear friend. Although she has had her onion to peel of late she has stuck by me and encouraged me thru the layers of my onion lately. I wanted to make her a special card to thank her for all she has done for me even though she probably doesn‘t realize how important it has been to me. I haven’t mentioned her name as she follows my blog and I don’t want to spoil the surprise if she hasn‘t received the card yet.
To crate my little music book I printed the sentiment. The C# Minor stamp was inked then blotted with a baby wipe before stamping over the sentiment to give it a more vintage look then. It was then cut with SB Labels Seven and three more blanks the same size. All the edges were distressed with Tea Dye DI. The centers were scored then stacked and glued at the score lines. Foam tape between the pages hold the curve in them. A gold cord was added as a book mark. SB Floral Flourishes and Foliage, MS border punch and ribbon were used on the base card and a silk flower bouquet added to finish.
This small card carries with it my love and appreciation.
