Here is a simple card I've made for my Aunt Elsie today. I haven't mentioned her before but she is 96! And just now is having to go into a retirement home, she has gone this far all by herself with the help of her other neice who lives near her - but I am sooooo proud of her. She's always been there for me since I was a wee grasshopper (I am from Saskatchewan, lol)....so I owe her a lot! She is also the last of 3 sisters and 1 brother, so I hope I can brighten her day a little with this:
I actually made it while having coffee at Tim Horton's today - so I could purchase my coffee for their TH Camp Day. Too bad the weather went sour afterwards - those camps are really nice ones, so I hope their campaign went well!
But I simply made a couple of quick stamps with my stamp, and then placed a border stamp onto a scrap of paper which I cut out to make my 'window box' shape.
The idea is to keep the colours straight and simple, and then add a couple of trendy bits such as the Vintage Voque border stamp, and our Scallop Trim Border Punch.
That is also one of the buttons from our embellishments section. Even 1 button can make a difference!
Off to make something else!
