First of all, the card just screams "homemade" to me. Even Mr K-E, who doesn't really pay much attention to these things, said Did they make this themselves or what?
I mean, it's okay if you want to add a personal touch/think you can do better than card manufacturers etc - but please....don't take it too far.
The card we received today had
- little plastic hearts (I think scrapbookers call them embellishments)
- little plastic pearl things
- spray painted gold edges
- a stuck-on gold "photo frame" made of stiff textured card
- paper roses, complete with green sepals
- red ribbon
and that's just the front of the card. Don't get me started on the inside, or we'll be here all weekend.
What happened to minimalism? What happened to simple elegance?
I know it's mean to criticise, but OMG, please...stop with the tackiness. Put that liquid gold pen down before I smack you.
And is it really necessary to have the heartfelt "essay" about how "we want to be with our friends and family on this special day etc etc....as we celebrate our life together..." Oh please. Spare us.
