Thus was the inspiration for the card set I made for my mom, which I'm entering in the Moxie Fab World Card Set Challenge. I used one of my all-time favorite stamp sets from Crafty Secrets for a retro look, and I made my first foray into Copic-ing. So please squint a little...I have no idea what I'm doing. Here is the set:
The papers are from the Gertie line of Stella & Rose...I think it works well with the stamps. For each card, I colored the woman's hair pink. Now my mom's hair was orange, but I didn't think the orange quite worked (maybe fluorescent orange??). Anyhoo, here are a couple of close-ups:
I layered the stamped images onto Spellbinders Lacey Circles. I also used a border punch on the red and cream paper--kind of hard to tell in the pictures. Here's the box I made to put the cards in:
The template is one of the Paper Crafts magazine downloads (from Gina K.). This was my first card box from scratch, but it was fun to make and I'll use this template again!
Thanks for looking, and thanks so much for the comments!
