Heartfelt Ephemeral Cards


My home searching is slow going. We have some hang ups as everyone does during the process. Of course we have to wait for someone to buy our home first and we are also part of a class action lawsuit that we are hoping will be settled very soon. Because of these things we have needed a sturdy and sensitive group around us who know the ins and outs of buying a home.

My real estate agent has given me so much of her time just explaining things, looking for homes, scheduling appointments and so on. She got married to a family friend recently and I wanted to give her a heartfelt gift. A handmade card so she would know how much I appreciate what's she's done for us so far.I don't really know what her favorite colors are or if she even likes pink but I used seam binding crepe paper frills to line the side of vintage paper to create a Wedding Card. Some calligraphy and scrapbook embellishments finished off the card.






Making this card gave me a little boost to create some Valentine Cards for my Etsy shop...
