I realize after making this card that I should have used black cardstock instead of the patterned paper. The paper is flimsy and it shows all the wear and tear of my attempts at sewing the corners which made my fingers sore. I'm so pleased that the rest of the card turned out as I wished. First, I tried to imitate an ancient scroll as the base by tearing the edge and then wetting with a paper towel to fold over. I popped the center mat and the stamp as well. I felt so clever about the scroll containing "words of wisdom." I think this card would work for a man (always my challenge) or as a kind of generic category.
