"That looks like a professional card." So says my son, the art critic. And, I guess he is earning that title as he is finishing up his masters in drawing and painting while teaching art core classes at Arizona State University. And this came after he had come home after completing 18 art critques with his students. The card he refers to is to the right and almost doesn't qualify as a stamping project with only the Friendship stamp from Wordsworth being used with a Memories Sepia Pad. I made the medallion while I was traveling for my job, sitting in my hotel room after work. It is a sectional piece - cut pie shapes from thin foam sheets and cover with pretty papers and assemble by gluing all on cardstock. The centerpiece is a button (from DollarTree). The layer is a textured piece of lightweight cardstock and because of the texture, the impression from the stamp was softened (which I actually think is very effective here). The panel was cut along the edges with a Fiskars paper edger and affixed to an 8 1/2 x 11 white card stock piece folded in half. This card, since is is deemed "professional" is destined for my friend who just completed her Masters degree in Christian Counseling at the age of 67. Professional card -- for a professional -- right? Much congratulations to my dear friend, Donna!
