This is a card that I made for some dear friends, who had us over for dinner. 🙂
Going to someone’s house to eat dinner is almost a lost art these days. We have become a society where facebook, internet, and email have become the main resources for interaction, so dining with friends around the table at their home felt refreshing. So…that calls for making a special card to express our thanks….
Isn’t this some beautiful cardstock? The main glittery background became the inspiration for the whole impression of the completed project. The paper was cut to card size, and then the images (grater, pot, sifter, and pitcher) were cut out from the remaining un-used cardstock, and adhered with a 3D foam square. Using the cardstock in this way allowed for much of the paper to be used and eliminated wasting such awesome paper. This retro-themed card was fun to create and would be the perfect expression of gratitude for a fun time.
The image of the retro woman drinking coffee is from stampsmith.net, she went perfectly with the theme of the card. After the coffee drinking woman was stampped—and cut out, with detail scissors. I placed several of the images all over the card front. The reason for using several images and placing them in various directions would encourage the eye to look the card over from corner to corner. The “So Good” was stampped with distressed ink from Tim Holtz, called Broken China.
The layer of black cardstock really makes the robin egg blue pop to give a crisp clean overall look.
All of that to say…Thanks so very much—for the good food, and wonderful fellowship!
