I recently started following the My Favorite Things release posts after seeing some really cute cards on Kay Miller's blog. For the May release one of the designers created a card with primary colored stripes on a black background. I immediately thought of my Papertrey Ink cover plate, "Horizontal Stripes." I needed two cards for totally different reasons. The first for my niece's birthday.
I die cut the cover plate seven times with different colored cardstocks, then layered them into a cover plate cut from True Black. The die cut sentiment is from "Wet Paint," and the stamped sentiment from "Big Birthday Wishes."
The other card is for one of our dearest friends who has very suddenly been diagnosed with aggressive cancer. It's taken all of our breath away, but I wanted to send a card that might brighten his day a little.
Both the die cut and the stamped sentiment are from "Wet Paint" by Papertrey Ink. Please keep Bob and his family in your prayers. There are rough days ahead.
