Project DH revealed...

Here are the cards I created for DH's birthday. The first one (chocolate and gold) was made to order for Richa and Chirag (my sister and brother-in-law) and Aditya (my bro). The background text on the brown cardstock is handwritten and the design inside is handcut. It has a matching envelope with similar hndwritten text.





The next card is a regular card with loads of blue and loads of glitter:


The last card is a side-step card. I had this tutorial lying around with me for quite a while now... and while wondering what card I can make for him, I stumbled across this one... The idea was easy to come by... we are both coffee drinkers and have many memories revolving around the mugs :-) The sentiment was a random thought that got more polished by Google ;-)


Cheers,
Smita
