Hi everyone! Just a friendly reminder to finish up your package of cards for this month's OWH challenge (half fall or winter/half anytime). Cards are due to shippers at the end of the month, so you have just about a week before you have to mail your cards. I don't think I'll have enough to make it worth my while this time, but I'm consistently working so that I'll have a nice box to send by mid-August.
The last Christmas cards I posted were (by my description) weird! Here's one that follows a traditional color palette.
Funny story: I was in the middle of making this card when I noticed I had a FB message from a friend I hadn't conversed with in about a year. I responded and then looked back at my card. I about fell over when I noticed the card I had nearly finished is almost an exact replica of a dress my friend made and wore to our college's ball. I dug through my photos and found a picture of my friend wearing her dress. It's like photo inspiration in reverse! How unlikely!
Paper: cardstock from stash
Ribbon: Offray (thanks to Mommom's stash)
Punch: I don't have a ticket punch, so I use a 1/2" circle punch on the corners
