Special Orders

Some months ago, a special order was requested. My customer had arranged a surprise weekend away for her husband's birthday, and she wanted to be able to present the gift in a special way. We chatted about what she'd like included. and then she emailed me the important information and a photograph. Then I just needed to format the document to fit the project, and print it out.

This Tri-fold style card seemed to fit the request to make the mystery last as long as possible - hence the peek-a-boo hole with a question mark. I used By The Shore DSP (patterned paper) as a suggestion that the weekend would be at the beach. That's also why I used the swirly hippy-like stamp from Designer Tee, a SALE-A-Bration stamp set. It needed a 'button' closure, and that seemed to suggest water.

Once the card was fully opened, a view of the holiday house garden and pool area was on view, along with the details of when and where. I made an envelope to accommodate this slightly larger (and thicker) than usual project. It was fun to use a strip of the paper and some linen thread to dress up the envelope to match the card it contained.

If you need a special card and you don't craft yourself, feel free to call on me to make one to order.

Cheers, Rachel
