i have found the cure for the common card! pop dots! who knew? lol, i'm sure many of you did. i'm not a big pop dot user and i'm not a big card maker. i'm sure many of you have heard me moan a time or two about my lack of card making skills. this past week though as i was throwing a card together every day for my son to send out i found that a few pop dots make a world of difference when making cards. i am so relieved to finally figure this out.
these were mostly made from june leftovers and a little boy product (like the k&co alphabet animals and the sassafras lass monsters) that i dug up out of my stash. if i am going to be making many more cards for g to send to all the men and boys in his life i am going to have to invest in more all boy stuff.
this is my other favorite. i am in love with those hambley frame rub-ons and will be hoarding my last few. i'd love to do this technique on a layout. i just put the rub-ons on some vintage dictionary pages and then painted the interior with gesso.
and here is the interior of one of the cards. this one is to papa, so g drew a couple creatures he wants papa to find for him when we go to florida in a couple weeks. i'm having g write captions to his pictures, then i write what he dictates to me and have him sign it at the bottom. happy thank you cards. :)
