Whenever my family gets together for a reunion in the summer, I like to take little handmade gifts for the gals in the family. Next week, my son and family from England will be at my other son's and daughter's lake places near Detroit Lakes, Mn. They each have a cabin near each other on the same lake so it works for all of us.
When I saw Danielle's notecards yesterday at PTI's Stamp-A-Faire I knew this was the gift for this year. Tonite I finished seven sets of four cards each done in four colors.
Besides the two colors here, I also did a yellow and pink version. This is a much simplified version of Danielle's cards, but when mass producing, simple is the operative word!! When I first started using the liquid leaf gold, I had a royal mess and won't even go into that - just sayin' that paint thinner will take liquid leaf off a manicure and not harm the polish! And don't try to liquid leaf a sheet of paper and then run it through the Cuttlebug - gold on your plates and in your dies is not a good thing. All PTI products - alphabet, butterfly, papers and doilies - and I used Martha Stewart's liquid leaf.
Hope to maybe get a few more of the inspiration cards done tomorrow, but if not I'm happy that these are done thanks to Danielle's inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.
