I have to say, one of the things I love best about making my own cards is the ability to customize. Oh sure, I could spend hours driving around town trying to find the perfect card for someone, but how awesome is it that we stampers are able to make our own ideas come to life?
Take this card for example:
Our good friend (and best man at our wedding) is gone this week to management training in Dallas as part of FedEx. Being a manager has been a long-time goal of his, and he has not been on an airplane in about 12 years, so we're very excited for him.
Of course, Hallmark doesn't sell a "Congratulations on Going to Management Training" card, so I made my own! The truck is actually the A Muse ice cream truck with the ice cream and music notes taped off. The city is the newly released Cityscape colored monotone to make it fade into the background. The papers are by Bazzill, Jubilee and Papaya). I hesitated on adding ribbon since this card is for a guy, but I figured a knotted ribbon would be all right.
