I had already cut out the Elegant Posts for the top and bottom pieces of the card and decided that I would set it landscape rather than portrait so that I could have a centre sentiment with the words that I wanted. I used Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles, alternating the colour for each size. With the final size, I printed out in matching colours, the sentiment that I wanted for each card and then cut it out with the Spellbinder die to ensure that the sentiment was centred correctly - and I do not know of a printer that would take card that small!
I then added roses that I had bought from willdorchidcrafts.com in opposite corners to finish the cards. To ensure that they do not get damaged in the post, I have made box envelopes for them and also put an insert inside with a verse printed on some beautiful Gold Dust Shimmer paper that I got from ebay. It is 120gsm and it a beautiful paper to use.
Although this is my first post for the year, I am determined this year to ensure that I post at least twice a month - and even more if possible but at least I am setting a realistic target.
Check back soon to see if I am actually achieving it!
