I’ve previously mentioned that a few of the men among my family and friends are jazz lovers. None more so than my son.
It was his 40th birthday yesterday (as I type but probably weeks ago by the time you read this) and, as per usual, I remembered to get a gift but did not buy a card. I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a card maker but we all know that a nice set of papers in just the right theme can work wonders.
I made a little box card by simply cutting out some interesting bits from the paper and built a little jazz scene inside the box by using layers of 3D foam tape.
It’s certainly not super clever or impressive but it did the job and was more personal than any bought card would have been.
