Hi Hollowers!

I have few few posts to interrupt the catalog videos; today I have a card to share with you I am so in love with.  My step-mother in law is the most wonderful person i love her to bits.  She hand knitted Tilly the most beautiful christening gown; the work in it is unreal and it is stunning.  Here is Tilly in all her glory with Victoria!

Isn’t the gown and the baby just gorgeous!? Sorry, I digress; it is her birthday while we are in America and it’s a big one; they are celebrating by going on a cruise around Norway and some of the baltic areas.  I look forward to seeing her when we get back.  I wanted to send a card for her that I knew she could take on the boat to open on her special day.  She is a very stylish and elegant person so I wanted a card to reflect her style…

Don’t you just love it? It is so simple but carries elegance.  I made have had so many people ask me to make them one of these; I may do a class on simple elegance cards when I get back from holiday.  What do you think?  You could change up the ribbon for the appropriate recipient.  I am considering a purple spotted one for a friends birthday…this may be my new signature cards and shock horror no hedgehogs in sight!  I used celebrate today and the matching framelits; the stem is from balloon celebration.  I can also see a beautiful wedding or congratulations card using the same idea but ¨sing the stars and confetti stamp and then heat embossing.  Has this card inspired you too?  I’d love to see your ideas; you can post your link in the comments section or use #HedgehogHollow so I can see them.  If you want to make your own these are the supplies you will need…
