Friendship cards, Inspirational card

Swirls & a good friend.

Hello Ladies, Hope you had a pleasent weekend. Me ? Yeah, it was pleasently creative. My mojo continues in full swing, gladly ūüôā

Amazingly again, last night was fruitful enough to keep me churning out another 6 cards, that is, till the wee hours of the morning ! Yes, Feel like I am on top of the world. Its been that good. This weekend, I¬†had this urge not only to create¬†cards for the challenges but also to experiment with different designs and textures. You’ll see the results in the following posts.

This first card is really special to me. I think I would rate it a good 7/10 !! And that itself speaks volumes coz I really am, very critical about all my own¬†projects. Nothing is really ever good enough for me, including my own handwritting. Thank God laptops and keyboards¬† ūüôā

Like I always say, the simplistic designs are always the most attractive ones. This card is ideal for both genders although It does sport a large flower. Amazingly this card carries 4 differnt handmade papers. I have tried to take close up pics of the flower to get you to see the textures.  Remember, I told you about how I managed to open that new stack of handmade paper bought atleast a year or so before ?? Well, all this is spilling out from there.

The ivory paper is¬†embossed with swirls, the Flower itself has two different, thick paper diecut with a button in the center, a tag with a friendly message and two butterflies. How simple can it get¬†?? This simple ūüôā¬† The card, itself, is in very pale ivory, white, and green¬†tones, except for a little dash of red.

This is a general card which you could present for valentines or an all-year-round-card for any friend/collegue/classmate/neighbour.
