For someone special...

Today is a special day in my family! Mom is away spending some time with her sisters and today they are celebrating one of my aunts as she is being welcomed as a Judge in the BC Courts! We're all so proud of her!  Mom made a special card for her, with a pocket inside for each of us to include a note. 
The background is some new linen paper we have in the store- a special purchase available for just $1.00 per sheet (reg. $2.50 each!).  It's paper backed lined and we learned that it is stunning when you put it in an embossing folder!  Mom embossed it and then inked it with Distress Ink.  The texture is really lovely!  We kept it really simple with some paper flowers and bling on a kraft card (new 5x7 cards in the store at a great price).  Here's a close up of the texture:
The linen takes inks really nicely- I've been playing around with it a bit and should have some samples to show you soon!

p.s. did you see the news?  New Summer Seasonal Distress Ink was released today!  We've got it up for pre-order on our new online store!  Local customers can pre-order online as well, no extra charges will be added once you sign in with a local postal code & select pick up in store for a shipping method.  You can also opt to pay in the store when you pick up your ink :)

Oh, good to know about that linen paper, I was wondering if it could be embossed! And yes, I just pre-ordered my inks, yummy!!!
