An Unusual Request

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Last week I had an unusual request from my one customer.
She wanted a pack of cards made for October birthdays with this Halloween dsp from 2 years ago called Motley Monsters. She had seen this one particular piece on a calendar I made her as a Thank You gift last year and you should of heard me laugh. I told her I have never had that type of request before but I would do my best to create what she wanted. 

This is the finished product....

The sentiment I think comes from an old All Year Cheer stamp set but not sure which one. I chose this sentiment because of the funky font. I tried not to cover too much of the dsp since she requested that certain sheet of paper. My sentiment panel has a wee bit of ribbon on that I used a mini stapler on. This stapler has been in my stash since I started stamping....no idea where it came from but there is even 2 extra packs of staples to go with it. I liked how small the staples were so I used it to adhere my snippet of ribbon on. In the end I have come to like this card set but my customer has not seen these yet but i'm sure she will love them. She's such a funny lady and I love that she keeps me challenged!

October Birthday Card Set:

Stamps: All Year Cheer
Ink: Basic Black Archival
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Motley Monsters DSP (retired)
Accessories: Circle & Scallop Circle Punches, Tangerine Tango Ribbon, Stapler, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape


My thoughts for today...

Boy, isn't that the truth!

That's all for today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a terrific day!

That's a fun set of cards Wendy, and I can see why she liked that cute dsp. It just makes you want to smile :) I find that if someone asks me to make a particular card, I'm inspired more to create than the routine process. Those ribbon tags are the perfect pop of color too! Have a great day!

I love these! My birthday is 10/23, and I would love a Halloween themed b-day card, since I absolutely love Halloween. What a great idea your customer had for October birthdays.
