PTI’s Make It Monday #1: Go-To Sentiment Cards

     I found PTI’s Make It Monday series rather inspiring. I made this pair of birthday cards and also a pair of similar thank you cards, which still need a finishing touch. I will post those later this week.

     The story behind the next card is that I had a smudge on the bottom border. I am a messy stamper and am lucky to make a card that doesn’t have a smudge on it somewhere. Originally, the card had the same striped border as the one above. I thought adding to the border would distract from the smudge, but instead it drew more attention to it. On top of it, I grabbed the wrong green ink. So I decided to add a bow to hide the smudge... and soften the border. I am happy with the results.
