While shopping at Target today for a few odds and ends, I ended up in the card department. I like to browse there to see what the card manufacturers are using on their cards. Of course, I always check out the absurd pricing! Anyway, short on time, and procrastinating this year, I was actually contemplating purchasing a card for Jay (his birthday is tomorrow), and a card something like this caught my eye.
Very simplistic, very much along the lines of what appeals to his design tastes. Anyway, flipped that card over and had sticker shock. Decided to be stealthly and take a pic with my camera phone for inspiration at home.
Apparently I don't know how it works as when I got home there was nothing there! No picture, nothing. I'm sure my kids would be rolling on the floor if they knew this, so let's keep that our little secret! LOL
Anyway, from what I remember, it was a textured block, off to the side, with a small tag. The Target one said "husband" well, to me *celebrate" was more appropriate for the occasion. I also gave it some texture with the Linen background stamp, distressed vanilla layer, and hemp. It needed one more thing, a simple flourish to the rescue. Carte Postale has a very nice, masculine looking flourish that was perfect.
Happy Birthday, honey!
