Mr Maui Stamper and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary last week. It’s hard for me to believe that many years have gone by! Math has never been a strong point for me, and clearly there’s some sort of mistake here. I’m barely 30 years old myself – right???
Making a card with Designer Series Paper called Mocha Morning was clearly the perfect choice for a couple of coffee lovers:
The geometric layout and neutral color scheme give this card it’s strong masculine theme despite a curly-cue or two. And since this was a hand-delivered card, I got out a big Neutrals Designer Button for the front. I know you can attach buttons with glue dots, but I much prefer stitching them on. It doesn’t take all that long to make a couple of holes with the Pokey Doodle (Thank you, Heather Summers!) and thread a little Linen Thread through the holes and make a knot. I like knowing that button isn’t going to fall off.
There was a little part of his present that I didn’t have on hand to put in his package (yes, there might be one or two disadvantages to living 2500 miles out in the Pacific Ocean!!) I made a coordinating 3×3 notecard to tell him about it:
Who takes these photos anyway? Operator error. I would never take such a crooked photo.
