Rachel recently asked me to make her some cards. She has 3 weddings and a shower to attend in the next couple of months. This is the first of the wedding cards that I made for her. I got my inspiration from a card that I saw on Pinterest made by Melodie Viljoen. Hers was so pretty in pink, but I went the white and silver way for the occasion.
And inside I simply added................
Cardmakers, do you ever wonder about the amount of work that you put into a card for certain occasions? I was going to make 3 of the same card for her, but she said they knew each other and I wondered that anyone else ever sees the cards that people get for weddings and would it matter. I plan on trying 3 different ones but the question still sits in my mind.
When you make or buy a sympathy card for someone, do they display it? Weddings and showers - do people leave them out where others can see or are they tucked back into envelopes or bundled in ribbon and stashed away?
I'm not going to stop making cards because of the thought of someone tossing it away, but I'm rethinking simplicity. I can make something simple and beautiful or elaborate and beautiful and maybe some occasions should be more on the simple side.
What do you think?
