Happy Monday everyone - It was SO HARD getting back to work today. We had just absolutley gorgeous summer weather in Massachusetts this past weekend - I spent a lot of time in my garden weeding and mulching and enjoying the sun and soft breezes!
I was asked by a co-worker last week to make two personalized birthday cards - one for her sister and one for her mother.
I made both cards based on challenges over on Split Coast this past weekend.
When I asked my co-worker what her sister's interests were - she said that she loves clothes shopping - a fashionista! The Inspiration Challenge was to look at the website - Posh Vintage - a lovely shop for clothes and a perfect site to give me ideas for the sister card!
I was inspired by this pretty floral dress.
dress form die from PTI that I cut in white. Then I cut it again on this pretty origami floral paper and trimmed just the dress part adhering it over the dress form. The sentiment stamps are from Women of Life by Papertrey Ink and the background text is from Waltzingmouse Text It set.
I added layered circle Nestabilities, a bow of wrinkled seam tape and some bling!
Here's what I stamped on the inside of this card - the stamps are from Signature Series Dress Form by PTI and coordinate with the dress form die.
I was happy to see Patter as the Featured Stamper over on Split Coast this week - I 'met' Patter a few years ago when I participated in the monthly SCS His Holy Name challenges that she ran. (you can see the projects I made for that challenge here in my His Holy Name Album in my SCSgallery)
I chose to case Patter's Hi card to create the card for my co-worker's mother who likes the outdoors.
I used different colors and a die cut butterfly but kept her pretty sketch and basic design!
The happy Birthday is from Frame It and Mom is from Roses in Bloom - both Waltzingmouse.
