Early in December we had dinner with (ex)colleagues from Eric. I sat next to his French colleague and spoke with him about my card making. He asked me if I could make 11 New Year's cards for his team members. I agreed as long as I could make them after Christmas due to my busy schedule and he was okay with that.
Well, after all the festive activities in December I was lacking a bit of inspiration to create cards. I went over to Dawn McVey's blog - one of my favorite stamp designers - for inspiration. I just love her designs and her eye for awesome color combinations. My first card is inspired by this card from Dawn.
And a close up of the texture made with the Canvas & Linen impression plate.
