I needed to make a card for a dear friend of mine, but wanted to be economical with my pretty black paper! So, I traced one of those rounded-edge Behr paint sample cards (approx 5x6 inches) onto black cardstock, and then dug into my treasure trove of magazine images (i have a big thing for cutting out pretty pictures!). I had a hard time figuring out how to make a pretty font, so I just opened MS Word, wrote "joy" in a nice font, and freehanded it onto the card in pencil, then with silver pen. On the back is a printed piece of parchment-coloured cardstock with thin grey lines for writing neatly
I'm thinking of making a series of these cards as a gift for someone next year perhaps, I'd like to add a few little rhinestones or teeny crystals just to sparkle it up. If anyone has any good ideas for holiday words, pass them along! Joy...peace...I definitely need to enlarge my festive vocab.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v247/universitygal/IMGP2161.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v247/universitygal/IMGP2163.jpg
I made an envelope out of a 12x12 piece of scrapbooking paper, and glued on some French Ribbon to match the gift I wrapped! I'm going to make so many more of these handy envelopes!
