Today is Meg's birthday! Have a delightful day. I know she's already seen this, but for the rest of you:
A letterpress birthday card is a happy (and girly!) birthday card! The chair and sentiment are inked up in purple, topped by some silver tinselly stuff. This is one bulky fiber, so it doesn't wrap around (that would've looked goofy!). Instead, it's held pretty securely in place with scor-tape. Hope it survived the trip! The upper half is actually inked in a custom-blended charcoal color, though it ended up looking pretty much like black once it dried -- oops! That design wraps onto the back:
I don't think I've ever made a card with such a pretty back :)
Meg, I hope you have an absolutely delightful birthday! Everyone else -- well, have absolutely delightful un-birthdays!!
