A special request card

Recently, I was thrilled when a customer at one of the coffee shops I sell cards at, asked if I would make a special card. This is the card I created.
This card was for a gal graduating to high school and her favourite colour was green. It was her Grandmother who had stopped for a coffee, saw my cards, and inquired if I did special requests. Well, of course I do and I set out to make this card as special as I could.

This card is 5.7 and uses patterned paper from retired Lucy; Dotty For You; and Chantilly. The base is a White Daisy, so I coordinated sentiments with that, then have Whisper and Lagoon cardstock, also. I used our wonderful Houndstooth Irrestible Dimensional Elements Alphabet for the name. I rubbed some Pear ink on then either stamped or wrote with Lagoon or Whisper ink. I added some Sweet Leaf Bigger Brads and Sweet Leaf grosgrain ribbon.

All supplies are Close To My Heart.
Paper: Lucy; Dotty For You; Chantilly
Stamp: For Every Occasion
Markers: Whisper; Lagoon
Ink: Lagoon; Desert Sand
Embellishments: Sweet Leaf Bigger Brads and Grosgrain ribbon
Tools: Art Philosophy and Artiste Cricut cartridges


  1. Lots of pretty elements to this card. That honeycomb paper from Lucy was my favorite from that kit. I'm hoarding it. LOL

  2. Awesome card! I love how you did her name :o)
