My daughter is getting married at the end of the week. I needed to make a thank you card or a card that suited a thank you. At all of Liz Thayer's cardmaking event sponsored that she hosts, she usually provides a bulletin board filled with card that either she has made in the past or acquired at conventions, etc. She also gives some of her samples away to her regular customers. I love to be the recipient of one or more of these cards, as they make good samples that might be used for casing in the future.
Today's card post is from that last idea----a sample card that Liz has let me adopt as one of her loyal customers. I had it in my card sample stash, and I decided to use it for the card I need. It is not a thank you, but rather a "for you" card, but I thought it would work just right, as it will enclose a check for payment to the solosit/ piano keyboard duo who will sing a medley of songs in the music prelude prior to the wedding ceremony. A way to keep the guests entertained if they arrive early.
I re-created this card almost without any changes, and it gave me my first opportunity to try a step-style. It is a lovely card using the Sunflower stamp set that retired after the 2013-2014 annual catalog. I loved the little brown butterfly on the big Crushed Curry sunflower. I am not sure who should get credit for the original design.
