Anyway, she's quite arty herself so I hadn't a clue what type of card to make her - and no amount of effort or imagination on my part would ever touch her talent - so I made her this:

This card has been made from a Kanban kit - which is really good quality embossed and foiled cardstock. The kit matches the stamps I bought from QVC a short while ago... I used to think making cards from kits was a bit cheating - but there's no difference between these kits and starting from scratch - but it does mean that everything matches... you still have to think about the design and layout of the card - what fold to use, what to put where etc. I would recommend this kit to beginners or experienced crafters alike - but would particularly recommend it because of the quality of the card and toppers.
Hope my friend like it when she receives it.
EDITED TO SAY THAT THE FRIEND IS HELS - INK ON MY FINGERS... IF I SAID BLOGGING FRIEND - SHE MIGHT HAVE CLICKED ON!!!
