there are many, many miles between me + some of my closest friends. it may be a “part of growing up,” but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. although, I do love traveling to see them, the rendezvous must be much more strategic these days. taking into account vacation days, coordinating work + life schedules, travel logistics, and families. I miss the college days, we’d meet on a whim; whether it was to get ready + go out or stay in + drink wine.
I love snail mail. people don’t receive enough happy things in the mail [#bills]. I thought it’d be fun to create a greeting card for my friends afar. by going the DIY route, I can personalize the message + add a fun touch. so that is what I did ..
I just designed the cards in a word document. I added a wine glass clip art. and for a subtle touch, I let the text go gradually from grey to black moving down the page. for the wine glass, I used mod podge, glitter, & a paint brush. I just filled in the “wine”.
cheers! to pretending we’re drinking wine together right now.
