Design Tweak

I wanted to show you what usually happens after I post a design. I do a little design tweaking. The earlier post today shows an individual card, then I took the concept,idea and colors and simplified it to make some cards up for the stores. It would not be very economical or time efficient to fill the shop full of "one of" designs. So nothing fancy here but I thought they made beautiful wedding cards and I just love the birds in the tree from My Favorite Things! This set is on sale now in Kim's store!

This is a little close window of the focal image. The sentiment is done in the soft green with Karen Foster snap stamps and the image and underline done in this wonderful silver blue. Just thought it would be fun to share.

Lovely Sherrie! Have you found it difficult to sew on your cards? I've noticed a big trend in doing this, but I can't sew a straight stitch to save my soul!

I do this Design Tweak all the time but not for mass production. I just post too early sometimes and then when I see it on my blog I realize that I should add/change something!
Love these cards and the original inspiration too. They don't look standard sized are they smaller? If so, where do you find your envelopes?

Just gorgeous, Sherrie! That is a nice wedding card!

To answer a couple questions, yes these are standard size 41/4x51/2. This is the most economical for envies. I have done a lot of quilting so sewing in straight lines isn't too hard, just make sure you have a sharp needle. Don't ask me to sew curves though! LOL!
