Yesterday, I mentioned I'd spent the weekend in Virginia visiting friends. I knew I needed to take a thank you gift, but knowing Steven's extensive wine knowledge, I wasn't comfortable taking a bottle of wine. So before I left I spent Thursday night making a set of hostess cards using the Half Full Stamp Set. Knowing they were for a special occasion, I spent more time on them that I might otherwise. The card above, for example, is all heat embossed in copper, and hand colored using Blends markers.
While not all my own designs (thank you Pinterest!), I think they turned out quite well. I packaged them in one of the clear acrylic boxes, wrapped it in ribbon and made a special tag for it. Mary was happy to receive them, and now we're talking the next time I go to visit actually having a card making class with her friends - and wine, of course!
