Mom sang (beautifully, I must add!) at her high school alumni banquet on Saturday, and I accompanied her. She made me the most adorable note card as a “thank you,” and I had to recreate it. For the record, no thanks was needed – even though she always thanks me and is so appreciative whenever I accompany her. But I feel like it’s the least I can do since she and Dad paid for all those piano lessons! Here’s my “take” on her card.
Stamp sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Gently Falling*; Ink: Pool Party, Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy classic; versamark; Paper: Spice Cake designer series paper*; Pool Party, Very Vanilla card stock; Other: Eyelet border punch, gold embossing powder, heat tool, stamp-a-ma-jig (*available in the Holiday mini catalog; all other products available in the 2011-12 Stampin’ Up!® Idea Book & Catalog)
Isn’t that cute? Mom’s was pink and had flowers instead of leaves. I’ll take a picture and post it first chance I get.
The leaves are a 2-step set in the Holiday Mini (Gently Falling). I got the idea to “rock and roll” them from Amanda Corbett, a demonstrator friend. I inked the more solid stamp in Pool Party, the rocked it on the stamp pad in Early Espresso to color the edges before stamping on Very Vanilla. I inked the detailed stamp in versamark, then gold embossed the veins. It’s one of those “simple but elegant” cards, I think.
I’m heading off to slumberland. It’s been a long day, but I wanted to post something today (although, I guess it’s really tomorrow already). Thanks for stopping by!
