Card Holder

In the summer our little community has a weekend where they do a children's parade, children's games, a little craft boutique, and then a dinner and a program. So this is my contribution to the craft boutique. I can't sew, I don't crochet, but I like to use paper and glue so I make cards. And I love how this turned out!!! It's one of the rare times when I've {almost} felt a smidgen of giver's remorse. Unlike buyer's remorse where you wish you wouldn't have bought something, with giver's remorse you {almost} wish you didn't have to give something away. It's just that the stamping actually turned out exactly how I had planned it. And I'm worried that when I try to duplicate it, something won't go quite right. I'll let you know how it goes when I get around to making one for me to keep! Happy Friday!

Stamps: PTI Life
Ink: PTI Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avocado, Summer Sunrise

This is beautiful! It makes me wish I was still there so I could go to the boutique and buy this! I agree your stamping turned out perfect! Very nicely done!

Beautiful work! There's many people out there who can't glue paper either (or don't want to take the time) so I know this will be a hit at the boutique.

This turned out fantastic! What a great project. And I know just what you mean about not being able to duplicat a project as well as it came out the first time. That's why I have so many cards in my stash. ones I liked too much to give away and I knew I wouldn't be able to make again.

This is fantastic! I love this and I would totally have kept it and made another and given them the lesser good one - LOL

Wow! this is awesome, I love your box, I have givers remosre and buyers remorse all the time!

Krystal said...

Now THIS is something I need to make! I have no way to organize my cards!! and you did a beautiful job on it. I don't think I would have givers remorse, because I'd be too selfish to give it away! :)

Eve said...

Hi Rebecca....Love the story about your daughter and the glue....Isn't it funny how youngsters think sometimes?

Great floral cards you have been doing lately...and what a score to get a free set!

I love this template and that set! You did a great job as usual on this project and I would have had a hard time giving it away too.
