ps. How good is her 1989 album? I finally gave in and bought it. I'm loving it. Don't judge me.
Jake Weidmann, Master Penman? This man is incredibly talented. Listening to him talk about penmanship had me wanting to write lots of letters.
Everything was ready to go. Supplies, check. Water, check. Online tutorial, check. Then I remembered one important detail - oh right, I can't hand letter.
You've probably noticed a trend around here lately - cross stitch. The color and texture of cross stitch keeps me coming back for more. This week, there's a slight twist. Cue plot-twist music.
The only measuring I did before painting was to find the middle of the card. I put a very small and light pencil mark where the center X should be. Then it was just a matter of following the pattern.
The envelopes were made using this card maker that I got on super sale at Michael's. I don't typically make my own envelopes, but I wanted envelopes for this post and these were free and fast.
I tried lining the edges with washi tape, but it ended up looking messy. Plus, it seemed a little too busy, but then maybe I just like plain brown envelopes.
this post about letting the color cakes soak in hot water before using them. It made such a difference! The colors were richer and deeper, which made this project just that much more fun.
Kid President that said "Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody." That really struck a chord with me. I plan to send out all of the cards that I made and hopefully I'll make a few people feel like a somebody.
