Okay, okay, this will be my last, I promise! These were done with the “Mixed Bouquet” set of stamps and matching jumbo roller wheel (discontinuing 6/30/07).
I don’t know if you can tell that the roses were embossed in gold and sponged in with daubers in So Saffron and Rose Red, the green is Mellow Moss and the accent color is Chocolate Chip.
The pocket “postcard” was a last minute addition and I really like it! I just folded up and then folded down (and tore the edge) of a strip of cardstock. It is held closed on the sides by brads.
The tissue would have been too much work to emboss, so I stamped it in Chocolate Chip and then sponged it the same as I did the embossed ones on the cards & bag.
There is a matching set of stationery in the bag, but I figured you got the idea already.
Well, I gave one of them to a teacher today, and she asked my husbnad about whether I made the gift myself and my husband said “oh yeah, this is what she does” (meaning, for a living).
Then she spoke to me about it (and told me what my husband said to her) and I told her that ‘yes, I do classes’ and she could come to one if she wanted to… and she just laughed, like I was joking or something.
Hmm… this job doesn’t get a lot of respect a lot of times, but that takes the cake this week.
Oh well… maybe just knowing she could take a class made her happy? I’ll just think that!
