Latest Work...

I told 'Newlywed Girl' I'd post some pics of the cards I've been working on lately... She's got several friends weddings to attend in the next few months so here goes...
I'm really into flowers lately (aahh, Spring... Where are you?) and the chip-board variety let me add the color and style of paper I've used on the envelope.
I think I need to back off from the flowers for a while and come up with something more unique.
So I went with a star for this one. Inside it says 'Congratulations' in raised gold letters. It's difficult to get shots of the interior of the cards without bending them all up... But each interior has a white block enhanced with either ribbon or paper that coordinates with the envelope & exterior of the card. Some have a greeting but most are left blank for your personal message.

This is my over-zealous attempt at distressing... It may sell to those who like shabby-chic or 'Curt Cobain' fans who still like the 'grunge' style. The envelope photographed very 'pink'... It's really quite deep in color as you can see behind the flower... Believe it or not, that's the same paper... It's also difficult to tell that the paper has an 'aged' quality to it.

Too many flowers... Must... resist... the ... lure... of... the... flowers!
