{4.11.2012} Print Candee Hop

Welcome to this month’s Print Candee creative team blog hop!!!
You should be arriving from Kalyn’s blog. If not, you can head on over to the Print Candee Blog to start at the beginning.

Today, our theme revolves around Mother’s Day.  Does your mother request cards on consistent basis?  If your answer is yes, then do I have a great Mother’s Day gift idea for you… a set of handmade cards to keep her in stock.  I made a set of four, but this clean and simple design could really be mass produced to any number.  In fact, I will probably add some more when I have time.

For this set, I included 2 birthday cards (one feminine and one masculine).  I wanted that gorgeous hydrangea to be the focus of this set.  Isn’t it lovely.  This is my first time using a Print Candee Photoshop brush to create a card.  It is almost like stamping in real life.


I also included 2 sympathy cards.  Much better to have them on hand and not to need them last minute.  Again, one feminine and one masculine.  The soft vintage papers have a lovely blue and pink.

I packaged them all together using some more vintage papers to create the band and the sentiment on the label.

I am the end of this hopping train today.  Head on back to the Print Candee Blog for more fun.  We have some giveaways today as well.  Make sure you leave a comment on all the blogs today for your chance at a $10 gift certificate to the Print Candee store.  ALWAYS lots of yummy digi goodness in there.

In case you get lost along the way, here is the full blog hop list.
