Would you believe that this is the first time that I’ve actually sat down at my desktop computer in a month? Which is actually not an exaggeration. Here’s my summary of what the last two months has looked like: New York, Connecticut, New York, Germany, New York, India, New York, Louisiana, Louisiana, Louisiana – with a handful of days in Philadelphia in the middle. Crazy, right? I’m hoping to catch up on sleep this week.
But before that happens, I wanted to share Bossman’s wedding card with y’all (can you tell I’m back in Louisiana again?). I will be continuing the India posts after this one, but technically, this one still has to do with India.
Now, if you remember, Bossman doesn’t believe in saving greeting cards, which inspired this post on how long people save greeting cards. So I decided that I wasn’t going to make this card for Bossman, I was going to make it for Pooja. Seriously, the opening line was something along the lines of, “Pooja, this card is for you, because Bossman doesn’t believe in saving cards”.
I cut out all of the pieces of the card before I left for India and decided to finish it when I arrived. So the first thing I had to decide was what I was going to write on the front of it. I decided to keep it simple and write “wedding” – but I’m glad that I was smart about it and tried out a few styles of writing before I actually wrote it on the card.
Here’s what I learned. I stink at bubble letters. I always think I’m going to be able to be awesome at it, but it fails. And all capital letters that were big seemed like a good idea at the time, but I couldn’t keep them uniform enough, so small and simple was the answer.
Here’s a look at the final product:
My Favorite Part: The paper that I used on the front of the card. I splurged a little bit at Michael’s last time I was there and bought some fancy adhesive cardstock. Definitely fun to work with.
The Challenge: Trying to figure out how to write the word ‘wedding’ on the front of the card.
So now here’s the question, how long do you think he’s going to keep it this time?
