My friend Carla's 50th Surprise Birthday invite...did I dare do a card that would be seen outside the family?
Oh sure, why not...Carla's been a friend a long time. She'll be forgiving in my learning my new hobby! So, I just dove in and even made my own flower! Since I did not have a flower die, I made a hand-drawn template and hand-cut all the flower layers from different colors of cardstock and design paper. Did I have a clue if it would be a flower when done...heck NO! It was just a papercutter, scissors, glue and little ol' me to make the layout, flower, computer-produced sentiment and poetic verse inside! It is actually amazing what you can do without a lot of tools, but it does take more time that's for sure.
