I made another card last night to give to our Bed and Breakfast hostess to thank her for all of the arrangements she has made for our upcoming trip to St. Marys, GA. She has been very gracious in obtaining ferry tickets to Cumberland Island and for arranging boxed lunches for the island trip. And these are accommodations she has done for us before we have even gotten there to enjoy the Goodbread House Bed and Breakfast Inn! I have been wanting to make the swirl accent/frame on the Storybook cartridge (Pg. 60) for a while and decided to make it last night in black card stock on top of a light blue 5 inch card base cut from Walk in My Garden (WIMG). Using Design Studio, I cut out a black square picture frame by using two 5 inch WIMG square shapes and shrinking one to cut inside the 5 inch square when layered together. Gluing the frame on last allowed me to tie a light blue satin ribbon to the front of the card. I also cut the corresponding envelope from WIMG in white card stock and embellished it with the robin accent/frame and accent blackout image from Storybook (Pg. 31) which is raised up on foam tape. There is a personal sentiment inside the card written to our hostess which is also raised on foam tape.
Thanks for looking!
