And then I got a notion. And then I got shortness of breath contemplating the fun-ness. And then I found Dick Blick's Art Supplies. And then this happened:
There are forty-eight 5 x 7 canvas panels there. "What," you ask, "are you planning to do with ALL of those??"
"Excellent question," I reply. "I'm going to make THESE!!!"
They are little original artwork cards on canvas panels. I'm calling them Art Cards. They are art and gifts and cards all in one. They are sweet and fun and mailable!! The backs are blank so a personal message can be included. I think I'm in love. :)
And then there was a quandry. If I want people to be able to mail them, they'll need an envelope. I could probably buy envelopes that will fit a 5 x 7 canvas panel. And I might end up doing that. But I've made envelopes before and thought it might be fun to create matching envelopes for my Art Cards. I have stacks of scrapbook papers and card stock two feet high. Scrapbook card stock is the perfect size and weight to make nice, durable envelopes.
Come back tomorrow for a tutorial on how to make your own envelopes! I'm heading over to Etsy to list at least one of these cards. :)
Praying the Lord blesses you today with sweet dreams and an abundance of fun-ness.
