I have been working on this card for the last few days, I wanted to share it with you. Glenna asked me to make this for her friends husband because she wanted to let him know how much she appreciated everything he did for her friends 40th Birthday. She found a similar card in my shop, and started thinking like I do when I get a great idea for a card. So we truly did design this card together, and it was a lot of fun. I had a chance to get to know Glenna and she is a very sweet and creative person. She has to be if she went to all this trouble for her friend. The inside of the card represents the back of an envelope. How many of you remember when you put the return address on the back of the card? We decided to use a little creative license, to be able to show the lining of the envelope. I made the envelope into a gusseted pocket, where I placed 20 special notes, all trimmed in gold ink. I typed out all the special things he did to make her Birthday special. I was touched by the sweetness and care not only of this husband to his wife, but also the sweetness of Glenna, making sure this did not go unnoticed. Each note tells a little story about all the very sweet things this man did for his wife's Birthday. Glenna hopes this will be a special memento for her friend and her husband.
I would have to say this is the best part of my Etsy shop, I get to know the people I am designing something for, and I get to share a small part of their celebrations. I am always touched by their kindness to each other and to me. In the process, I get to become a part of their history. Thank you Glenna for sharing this with me. Thanks for looking ~Diane
