When my friend Liz "commissioned" me to make her a stationary set in the ever-classic black and white combo, I used this project as an excuse to purchase the Flourish rubber stamp that I had been eyeing at PS.
I stamped the Flourish in a repeating pattern on white card stock, which I cut to fit black card stock with a scalloped edge. I used Stickles glitter glue to add a few subtle dots of sparkle to the stamped pattern (difficult to see in these photos). Stickles triggers fond childhood memories of the Christmas sweatshirts my aunt and I decorated with puff paint - yikes! I will definitely have to find another use for this stuff! Halloween costume, perhaps?! I digress . . .
The Flourish stamp reappears on the envelope flap.
I was thrilled to find a use for this odd-shaped magnetic case that PS gave away at one of their workshops. The robin's egg blue gives the stationary a pop of color and a polished presentation.
A big black bow seals the deal!
Happy birthday, Liz! If you read my blog before our celebratory dinner on Friday, you will have to act surprised about your gift! ;-)
