I have been taking the opportunity of being home more to work on cards. Cards that I make specifically for special someones. And the special someone getting this card happens to be a High School Senior. I want to remind her that we see the sadness encapsulating all the young adults at this time. I want her to remember that she can hang in there, rise and shine, and that everything will be ok. I want her to know it’s alright to be sad. But it’s not the end…
Her special card is a play on a buckle card. The flap has the cup adhered to it and it tucks nicely into the right wing of the butterfly. When you lift the cup to open the card, you see the secret message stamped underneath. And, of course, my card isn’t complete until I add a little Wink of Stella…and the butterfly was the perfect item to make sparkle.
