Packaging A La Amber

So could I go so low as to stuff my cards into the box and call it a day, like I had a million times before? Well, no. Heck no! Not after Amber has set the packaging bar so high. I felt I had to add some pizazz and up my presentation game.

For some bizarre and completely irrational reason an undressed package now bugs me like an unthreaded button. Believe me when I say that I wish I could use an unthreaded button, it would be easier and I would use them a heck of a lot more. I think it’s because the holes look so empty, so naked. Ashley’s glitter technique cures the need for thread, but I have mentioned before how I feel about glitter. Egad, please stop me now. Moving on.

These cards were were pulled out of “the box” (more on that another day), in various stages of assembly. After having sat there for three years, I thought it was high time to finish them up and so I did. These cards are so old they were made with PTI’s original formula ink…

  1. WOW Kate these are beautiful! How do you get your pattern match so even? I assume you must use a guide of some kind, but to do so many is amazing:) Don't give up your cards are inspiring.
