Such was the case earlier this year when I came across an ad for a knitting product in a vintage craft magazine. Part of the ad perfectly described a friend, so I waited several months until her birthday finally arrived and made her a card that included a scaled-down copy of the ad.
Here's how the card turned out:
- white card stock
- scrapbook paper scrap
- scrap from vintage cookbook cover
- scrap of 1880's ledger paper, altered with red and white acrylic paints
- photocopy of ad from vintage crafting magazine ad
- vintage buttons
- "happy birthday" stamped in black StazOn ink
Not visible above are the definitions for "creative": "pertaining to creation; inventive; productive" - and for "talented": "a special, superior ability in art, learning, etc." These definitions fit my friend too.
(In case you were wondering, for "knitter", the definition is given as "one who knits".)
Like I said, I felt it was the perfect card to make for her! Of course, she has many fine qualities besides her artsy/crafty talents, but I couldn't resist using that ad to highlight that side of her.
