I found this cute little girl's chipboard dress and flower and decided to make a little girl card. I was thinking a baby girl card but as I was putting the project together, I decided not to add any sentiment to it and let people decide what this card was meant to be for. We'll see if it sells - I've noticed customers tend to want cards with very specific sentiments on them. Nothing too vague (celebrate you, from the heart, a simple note, for you), nothing too out there (Have nice Holidays enveloped by a coat of warmth and joy, Do you hear the jingle bells?, May your heart burst with joy all year long). Those simply do not sell well. People will request a card that says what's it supposed to be for: Happy birthday, thank you, deepest sympathies, congratulations on your wedding. As a stamper, it's really restraining because when I create, I try to see which sentiment would best suit the card, size-wise, font-wise, style-wise, and I'm always torn between putting what looks the best and what will be best received. So I guess this card is cop out because I decided to leave it blank and see what happens...
The design was inspired by the Sugar Pea Designs #55.
