I worked for quite some time on a retirement card for one of hubby's co-workers. I used some of my carefully hoarded SU! designer paper and matching cardstock, searched the internet for the perfect non-cheesy, retirement-themed sentiment, fussy cut the flower and used not one, not two, but THREE pop-dots to secure it to the front, and then hand made the matching envelope. When I was finally happy with it all, I gave it to hubby to sign and address. After a few minutes, I heard a suspicious sound coming from his office. With a sinking feeling I yelled down the hall, "Hey!! Do NOT use scotch tape to close that envelope!!" There was silence...and then a quiet, "I almost did." I immediately retrieved the card and sealed the envelope myself - properly. Crisis averted, but whew, that was close!
Nothing like a little transparent tape to make a hot mess out of a beautifully crafted creation.
Here's a picture of the card - before I added the sentiment to the front:
The card design was based on a sketch that was part of a challenge here last week.
