Isn't 50 the new 40? And isn't it odd how your perception of "old" changes as you get older yourself? I used to think 50 was perfectly ancient, but as I close in on it myself, I view it completely differently!
I have a very good friend who turns 50 on Sunday, and while I know she's not thrilled about it, it's still better than the alternative, right? I'm hoping this card will make her smile. I got the idea from SCS (where else?). I saw all these corset cards appearing in the galleries and futher investigation led me to this thread which has the link to the template and everything. I've just been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it. The cardstock is a beautiful sheet my aunt sent me from the UK - the black pattern is raised and glossy, like you had embossed it, only without the mess, and I found the ribbon on clearance in Michaels this weekend and immediately fell in love with it. The little card slides into the card and although you can't really tell from the picture the white cardstock is mounted on black "glittered" paper - it's very cool IRL. I can't decide if it's "done" yet or not - should I add something to the top of the card (I have some very pretty heart shaped eyelets - maybe one of those and some ribbon) to make it tag like so she knows to pull it out, or whether to leave it as is and just make sure the insert is visable amongst the lace - what do you think?
