I hope you noticed the button on my side bar. "Spread the Love" is a movement started by Mynette. Click the button and it will take you to her blog,,,,,,,The post is a sticky at the top, so just scroll a bit, and you'll find it.
It's basically a commitment for the rest of 2012, to make and blog about a card you're sending out to someone once per week in an effort to "spread the love".
So today I have my card. Someone over at Scrapbook.com posted that their father, David, was very ill. He enjoyed hand made cards, so would we make a card and send it?
Right up my alley!
Now guy cards are hard for me! I don't know why,,,,,,,,,but ask me to NOT use a bow or a flower and I freak out LOL. So when I finally got the design I wanted,,,,,,,,,,I made another! David's card is a "thinking of you" card,,,,and I made the same exact card a "Happy Birthday" card, because I can never have too many male birthday cards.
Here are the cards,,,,,,,
I used the NEGATIVES of spellbinders "foliage" (the fern) that was cut out of black card stock,,,,,,and layered it over gold mirror card. I embossed a sentiment with gold embossing powder and added a simple gold sparkle ribbon,,,,,no bow. And she's done. Really, it's too simple, but I thought it looked elegant as is.
I hope you enjoyed the card, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll choose to add your name to the "spread the love" movement!
