Frequently I am asked what inspires my card designs. More often than not it is the paper. This time, however, it's the beads!
Those sweet little letter beads we used to string around a baby's wrist (why? so we wouldn't forget their name?? :) Well, I found these beads in a sophisticated Gold tone! And they spell things! It's like they were begging to put on a card. I first ran into these little treasures in China last year.
They are also very light and a low enough profile to fit into envelopes. I'm pretty smitten, as you can tell. This class includes five different ways to use these letter beads on a card. I know it's not nice to play favorites, but I'm a board game kind-of-gal so the "Friends that stay together, PLAY together" card with a Tic Tac Toe board and a petite Glassine envelope filled with...yes! Xs and Os letter beads! Oh My!
I'm also digging these rich colors and a break from hearts & flowers, which I always try to do in March. Believe me, it's a challenge!
