This past weekend my entire family gathered together at a local Chinese restaurant to celebrate my grandparents' birthdays. Their birthdays are only days apart so we always combine the celebration.
To mark the occasion, I made them each a card...because that is what I do!
For my Oma, this floral patterned paper was perfect as she loves flowers and gardening. Since the pattern on this paper is so beautiful, I did not add many embellishments, just a few simple rhinestones, in order to let the pattern shine through.
For my Opa, I have to be honest, I struggled as I always do when it comes to making cards for men. With two girls, my scrapbooking supplies are overrun with pink and purple paper, ribbons, jewels, flowers; there is not much in there that would be suitable for an older man's card. I spent quite a bit of time rummaging through things in order to find supplies for this card. In the end, I went with this blue swirl paper, accenting it with a complimentary yellow and maroon...and I do think that it looks quite manly.
My Oma and Opa loved their cards and loved celebrating their birthdays with the entire family together. It was a great evening.
How was your weekend? Celebrate any special occasions? Make any cards?
Love your cards, Rachel. Your work is so simple but detailed and beautiful. I need to try to make more cards. Looking forward to seeing what you create next week.ReplyDelete
