For a cousin whose birthday was 2/5, I made this 'relic' card using the faux-leather label from an old handbag of mine. This is similar to an earlier card using strips of cardstock with the stitching already printed on it. The rest of the stitch lines - on the yellow, the red and the vellum - are hand drawn with a straight edge. I hope he doesn't think I'm calling him a relic - the description on the label includes the words "timeless design", and that is certainly complimentary, isn't it? Coincidentally, twin boys were born yesterday to another cousin (I'm not naming names unless I have permission), so my February card-making list has grown bigger!
