This year we decided to make gifts for people ~ not only to help the pocketbook but to also share in the joy of giving hand crafted gifts to our friends and family. The kids are also getting in the handmade spirit by painting candle holders and making ornaments for everyone.
This is the first of the 10 card set I made for everyone. I know it seems weird to post all the details before Christmas ~ rest assured that the friends and family that are recieving these gifts will be getting them before this actually posts so all is safe ;)
I designed this card to be a birthday card. This is the first card I made using the set Always. I made a pocket card and used Close to Cocoa as my base and layered Gable Green and Pink Pirouette as my accent colors. I also pulled in Banbury DS. I used Certain Celery 5/8" ribbon to accent the card. The bird and saying are stamped in StazOn Black.
Here is the card with the tag pulled out. I tried to keep the stamping on the inside soft so it could be written over. I'm really liking how this card turned out.
