I wanted to make my sister-in-law a stationary set that I knew she would really be able to use. Something useful and versatile, with cats, and it had to be purple. I started with a basic idea that I found here, combining C is for Cat and the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper. I made eight of these cards, with the coordinating envelopes.
Stamps: C is for Cat, Oval All
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Whisper White, Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch
That is the only card that I attached the sentiment to. In order to have flexibility, I stamped a dozen sayings from Oval All — 3 of each — and didn’t attach them. That way, Abby can use whichever of the sentiments she needs. There are more sentiments than cards, to add to the flexibility.
I put them all in this handy dandy portfolio. I needed a place to store the little ovals, so I cut down a small cello bag and attached it with a little sticky strip.
And here it is, all closed up and ready to go.
Happy Birthday, Abby! Hope you have a great day!
