Description

I remember having a melt-down when my mother insisted that I take "typing" in high school. I felt like I had ten thumbs! Fortunately, I got the hang of it, and the ability to type accurately and quickly has served me so well through the years. I have vivid memories of my mom's fingers flying over the keys of her old black typewriter...I loved the sound of the clacking keys and the carriage return! I guess that's why I fell for this stamp.

I designed this Valentine as a tribute to the people I love who make great things happen with keyboards...you know who you are! You're just my type! You love words and paper and puns and communicating in complete sentences! This is the ideal card for your favorite editor, librarian, report-writer, or college English major.

Let's start from the top: the old typewriter is embossed in black embossing powder...it gives it that authentic shininess that those machines had. I outlined the image with a gray Copic marker to give it some definition. I layered that piece on a deckle-edge black piece. All of that is popped up with dimensionals on the newsprint-black-vanilla card stock base. Then, I added some gorgeous bright red chevron ribbon to the bottom edge to give it some color!

The finished size is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches. The card is blank inside so that you can add your own little love note!

It is packaged in a cellophane sleeve and shipped via the USPS.
