Here's another effort in restocking my stash. Not only have I run out of sympathy cards, but I'm down to just a few thank you cards. Fortunately, I send many more thank you notes than sympathy cards, and thank yous are much easier to make.
This one is sort of a modernist, minimalist riff on naturalist, artsy insect prints, sort of like THIS.
Maybe I'm riffin' in my dreams, though. Oh well. I like my version. It looks like I made it (even though the stamps are by Papertrey!).
Once again, I'm loving Memento's three shades of orange. I looked at Hero Arts' inks, which use the three-shade idea, which is quite brilliant. Sadly, the Hero Hues only come in full-size pads for $6.99 each. To get them all would cost more than I care to pay (considering how many ink pads I already have...oy!), plus I don't have anywhere to put them all. Perhaps I'll fill in some gaps in Memento's colors with them, though. Or is that really necessary and just my caving to our consumerist culture when really I should be perfectly happy with the gazillion inkpads I already have?
Oh, the first-world problems I have! Don't you feel sorry for me?
