I'm too old to change and so I've continued to make cards that feature text on the front....it can describe the intention of the inside, issue an immediate greeting, convey wisdom...you get it.
And then there's humour too. Love this. This card of course, follows my tradition and is easy to make. The shoe stamp is Dawn Houser for Inkadinkado, stamped in good old Black Versafine ink and then re-stamped immediately (second generation ink). The two were then cut out (they are a single image). The background Postcard stamp is stamped in second generation of Dove Grey Stazon; then the rose head and leaves are incredibly lightly coloured and washed with water to pale them down. The 'incredible' part of this is that I managed not to be too heavy handed. (But then you aren't privvy to the number of false starts I made either...). I used a ruler to tear the postcard image from the card, coloured the torn edge with Victorian Velvet Distress Stain, and matted and layered it onto a black pre-fold card. Stamp the text - again black Versafine and give it drying time. (Ask me whyI know to advise you about this).
Then just glue the cut out shoes on - lightest behind. Stick the front shoe at a jaunty angle over the first one so as to slightly create the illusion of a pair!
And then....send your lovely card to anyone you know who's trying something new, starting up, starting over or considering anything. A frightened woman doing DT work, for example.
