I was asked to make a card for a priest who served as spiritual director and whowas leaving. I was told that I could design the card according to whatever I had in mind. Great! 😀
So I took out my handy dandy elephant poo paper. But since it was cream in colour, and the envelope was also cream in colour, I decided to use my vintage brown stamp pad to add some colour to the elephant poo paper.
I like how it turned out. The vintage brown really brings out the texture of the elephant poo paper 😀
Since he is Catholic, I decided to add some Catholic details, like a cross at the back of the envelope, and a cut-out dove.
If you look carefully, the cross also serves as a closing mechanism. The lower vertical part is supposed to be tucked underneath the upper vertical part. It doesn’t really work that well as I didn’t leave enough space on the upper vertical part to allow secure tucking in, but I will refine the design in future cards to come.
Overall, I am quite pleased with it. Here are more pictures, which you can click to see a larger one:
