Here is a detailed close-up of some of the embellishments on the card front.
Here is a look at what I did for the inside. I blocked out the inside text using Photoshop, as it included my phone number and other personal information. It looks kinda goofy, but you get the idea!
I had to design a envelope that would hold a 5x7 card that could be cut using letter size paper since I scanned the patterned card and printed it on 24 lb. inkjet paper. Once again, I blocked out the address using Photoshop!
There are several things I want to point out, the first being that the designer paper I used is Colorbok Designer Paper (8.5x11) that I purchased from Walmart...you get 30 sheets in the stack plus 139 stickers and 68 punch-outs for $5! Also the Offray silver trim that I used on the border is from Walmart. Everything on the card with the exception of the Martha Stewart "Double Loops" and "Classic Butterfly" punched items, was cut using my Silhouette "Cameo". The urn is a Silhouette file and I shaped it and placed foam tape beneath it to give it a dimensional look. The ribbon I used is May Silk Ribbon that I purchased from stampsimply.com............I love working with that ribbon and I need to order more soon!!! I have to say that designing this card has been nothing but "pure pleasure" and I think that in itself is healing!!!
Thanks for stopping by and please come back soon!
