… who can have you committed to a mental hospital! When the last 80th birthday card I made was given to the customer’s sister by the customer’s sister’s neighbor, the customer’s sister realized she too had a friend about to turn 80. The neighbor (who handles all my orders) said that it was too short of a deadline, but I managed to make this one anyway. In addition to a tag pockel easel dresser card for the neighbor herself, but that’s a post for another day! After all that I’d be impressed if you know who’s who of the sister, customer and neighbor! 😉
Again, this one went to a woman with a good sense of humor. Somehow I had it in my head that this one had to be purple as well, but apparently I was given free reign with this one. Oh well, purple’s not so bad! Normally my cards are handed personally from my customers to the recipient, but this one needed to be a little less chunky than my regular ones, because it was being sent by snail mail. The card itself is very simply made; image as focal point, plenty of patterned paper by Maja Design (8th of March, 8th of April, and 10th of April, all from the Vintage Spring Basics collection), some lace and cheesecloth, and that’s pretty much it. Of course I’ve added plenty of flowers by Kort & Godt, Wild Orchid Crafts, Papirdesign and Magnolia, as well as some berry head stamens by Kort & Godt. The big pearl in the middle of one of the flowers is by Melissa Frances.
I chose Mo Manning’s Mummu image for this card, she definitely looks like she’s enjoying life, maybe she’s even dancing? She is colored with Copics, as usual the colors I’ve used are at the bottom of the post. I’ve added a few stamps by Kort & Godt, Stempelglede and Inkido on the edges of my image, inked with Memento Rich Cocoa.
Two tags made with Magnolia dies are hidden behind the image. The one on the left reads: “Dance like no one’s watching… who can have you committed to a mental hospital!” The other tag just has a name, age and date written on it, all in the lovely Copic color V25.
I made the insides fairly flat, knowing the card would be sent in the mail. Just a few pearls have been added. I stamped the Lili of the Valley corner stamps in Memento Rich Cocoa, and did the same with the Kort & Godt sentiment on the left. The right has plenty of room for a personal greeting.
