Aunt Betty has a birthday next week, so I worked on a card for her today. I wanted to do something really special, but I was lacking creative ideas. I think that happens to everyone, so I'm not going to beat myself up about it. Getting a birthday card on time--or before her special day--will probably seem miraculous enough.
The card that I made features Stampin' Up!'s Bring on the Presents stamp set. I first created the envelope, and using the Stamparatus was soooooooo very helpful! It's difficult to tell in the photo, but I drew the shape of a tag appearing to be tucked under the bow, which is where I wrote the address. Do you decorate your envelopes? I think it's such a fun thing to do, although mine aren't always worth mentioning.
The photo is really awful, but just know that I tried so hard to get a better one. I must have taken 25 photos with a variety of backgrounds and lighting, and they were all terrible.
