I decided to make her a box card, using Silhouette file #57264. This is quite a large card, fitting neatly into a 5" X 7" envelope.
The balloons are not part of the file. I made them with a balloon punch and added them with strips of clear acetate.
On the back I added another balloon and a stamped sentiment, leaving room for a signature and a personal note.
I think Lucy liked her card. She seemed very pleased that it was not the usual kind of card.
Because Lucy's birthday is so close to Thanksgiving--and we were spending the holiday at her house--we were able to personally deliver her card and presents and watch her open them. So much fun!
I hope all my friends and family in the U.S. had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
