Sometimes it seems the shoes you're wearing are the only shoes you'd want to be in. That's been the case for Linda and myself recently as we've received such lovely complements from two of our customers.
First it was Martha when she needed a special card for a wedding she was attending. She looked around the store for inspiration and decided upon a card like the one that she had made at one of our all day card classes. She imitated it, but put her own twist on it by changing up the colours a little. I want to tell you how absolutely stunning it was and that a photograph doesn't do it the justice it deserves. Take a look and tell us what you think.
This is the one we made in class. Heat embossed white on white with shiny gold edge mat and gold stamping. Trimmed with a green organza and satin ribbon.
Here's Martha's. She heat embossed white on white, but used a shiny silver mat. For her stamping she used silver ink and a sheer silver ribbon....isn't it elegant! The recipients and their family all commented highly on it to Martha. Well done Martha, you awarded us the highest form of flattery by imitating our card. Thank you Martha.
Then today WE were the lucky recipients of a gorgeous thank you card. To the left is the card that inspired Tara which we had made in another all day card class.
Tara is a regular customer from Orillia, who often comes in and browses around and very kindly tells me that she almost always leaves with a little more than she paid for. A couple of weeks ago, Tara spotted a card on display that she loved and asked how the embellishment was made. I demonstrated to her how we had made it with a Martha Stewart Score Board, which unfortunately at the time she didn't have. I not only showed her how to make the embellishment though, I showed her how to make envelopes with the board too. Well as you can see from the beautiful thank you card and envelope she sent us, she was an excellent student, and yes she bought a Martha Stewart Score Board that day. Oh and yes she also has a Cuttlebug that I'd sold her previously, enabling her to emboss the lovely design on the side from the folder she bought the same day as the Score Board. Such wise purchases Tara for a very talented card maker, wouldn't you all agree? Thank you not only for the beautiful card you took time out to make for us, but for your kind words when you're in the store too....
we appreciate you Tara!
