I made this super fun card for the 2nd birthday of my young friend Sonia, who lives in Italy. It is a series of bright cardstocks, to which I stuck photos mostly of her and a short birthday message, and then covered in packaging tape for durability. I think what I love the most about it is that I feel it is a completely original creation, not something I've ever seen before, and totally personalized to her and her age. I am SO pleased with the outcome!
The best part was that Ambra (Sonia's mom) wrote to me in an email today:
"Sonia LOVES her card, and so do I! You truly made it for her, and that is soooo awesome. The fact that it's a book, which is a word she can say, and that it has all these photos in it, she just looks at it and looks at it. I almost got her to say, "Heather," but the best she could do in the moment was one of her newest words 'alio' which means garlic."
I totally laughed out loud!
