Today my friend Hilton dropped by with something I needed to borrow and it reminded me today how to be grateful for friends! Hilton has been like a surrogate grandfather to my daughter ever since she was knee-high to a grasshopper, and he has been selflessly doing wonderful things for us - and we hope we are doing lovely things back.
And being reminded of this simple fact, that friends - true friends - are a blessing, today I am showing a card I made last month. I made it along with a young girl actually, and hers came out just terrific. So its a simple card but the trick is to make it look more sophisticated than it really is - if you want to really impress someone (wink)!
The trick I like to use? Just one of many, here it was cutting out small bits and layering them on top - like the tiny bird and flowers. It also helps to frame the "greeting" and give it a place of importance.
I knew this card would be multi-coloured because of the 4 seasons represented - so I kept the background colours down to 2 - IN COLORs Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay. And we stamped on the perpetual favourite, Whisper White! :)
I think this would be a super card to give someone! Imagine how'd they feel unfolding this card from the envelope! Give it a try!
