As I mentioned on my previous post, my friend and relative by marriage received some unexpected news about her 90-year old mother's health just a few days ago. I finished her Mom's card and got it ready to mail off, now I am working on one for Barbara. It will also be from the "shoebox crop" I mentioned in her Mom's post. This card was originally designed by Liz Thayer herself, but I did tweak it just a bit by adding a pink cardbase, thus also making it larger and adding another layer. I like the way the pink frames the card. While wearing my "inside" creative hat for Barbara's Mom's card, I came up with the idea for this one. I decided to color-on-color stamp the inside verse paper like the front panel was done and computer-print my "hugs" verse directly on it with a matching font color, dressing it up with some pink corners and pearls. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. I really hope Barbara likes her card and the verse brings her a measure of comfort.
