This is for the CC481 and the CAS275 to make flat stackable cards. The caligraphy at the top was from a note pad that my mom made for me 30 years ago when I was 25. She has passed away now and I cherish this hand made note pad. She did caligraphy the real way...with a pen and bottle of ink. I printed her caligraphy onto white cardstock and added my image to the bottom. I colored everything with copics. Now when I want a note card I can make a color copy. What a great time I had making this card and remembering all the times my mom and I did things together. She was such an amaxing person.

I miss my mom, too, so your story was especially poignant to me. How wonderful that you have her beautiful calligraphy to continue to enjoy. Your card is beautiful. Love the music and flourish. Pretty!
