So here's the card I was trying so futilely to photograph yesterday. It's for the Moxie Fab "Three Cheers for Chairs" Challenge (found here). I'm getting ready to spend a few days at a friend's house, so I wanted to make her a little thank-you card:
And the inside:
Isn't that chair just the perfect image for a hospitality card? I also used my new Hero Arts Houndstooth background stamp. Love that stamp! The bookprint layer is a photocopied page from a vintage cookbook. If you look closely at the bottom right corner, you'll see a reference to "home-making" - I thought it fit nicely with the overall theme of the card. I printed the inside sentiment with my computer (I discovered that the "Arabic Typesetting" font is almost a perfect match to the Hero Arts sentiment stamp I used on the front of the card). I finished it all off with some scallop trim and bright cheery buttons. I hope my friend likes it!
