Hi! Today I wanted to share with you something I made for a customer. Okay, here's a little "backround gossip" on my customer. But remember, "What goes on in this blog, Stays on this blog"! lol! Anyway, there is this guy (a salesman) that works in the same office that I do. He is very successful I might add. (Nice six figure income, I'm sure). Anyway he just got remarried a few years ago and is totally in love with this woman. So much so that he still buys her thoughtful gifts, and does romantic things with her!!! Anyway... he found out that I sell handmade greeting cards and has been an awesome customer since. He says he gets "lots of points" with my cards. (Umm... I don't think I want to know what that means) LOL! He ordered a birthday card for her and this is what I made for him. (It looks like a pocket card from the front view but it really opens). I'm happy with the way it turned out and I had a blast making it, which is the best part. He likes when I insert a picture of them somewhere on the card. I covered the faces for their privacy. He gave me twenty bucks for it! Now I can buy a couple gallons of gas! I'm gonna show it to you in different parts so that you can get a better idea of what I did. The flower was stamped and colored four times and then cut out. I layered them with pop up glue dots. The flower stamp is from Outlines Rubber Stamps. (A simply fabulous store). Check 'em out! They display some gorgeous work done with their stamps on there. The sentiment is Stampin' Up . The butterfly punch is Martha Stewart. I really appreciate you stopping by.
I'm married to a wonderful man. Together we have two children, and four grandchildren. I have a passion for cardmaking and scrapbooking. I've been doing both now for the last nine years and I just never tire of it! I think it's a great creative outlet and a good form of relaxation and stress relief. I sell some of my work but I truly participate in this craft for my own enjoyment.
