Good morning everyone. . . . . . . Yes, I'm back!!! I hope you are all well and that you've missed me (whatcha mean "no"!!!) Its very irritating that work is getting in the way of enjoyment but hey ho, I'm just thinking of the goodies I can spend the hard earned dosh on.
One good thing is, after 10 days, I've lost half a stone so its like being paid pounds to lose pounds lol!!! I'm hoping that at this rate, by Christmas, I will actually weigh less than our turkey hahaha!!! (no jokes about stuffing please, this is a family show!)
I am sorry if I am late getting round to everyone. . . . . . . I will get myself into a more organised state eventually.
Now, today's card is the 94th birthday card I mentioned a couple of posts ago. It started as a "no rush, its not until mid December" to "ooh, err its actually end of November and needed a week before for everyone to sign". This is what happens when you let a fella loose with sorting out these things (no offence John, I know you are super organised).
Its an A4 card, as folks from a sheltered housing complex all have to sign it, and the base is a sheet of lovely A3 white 300gsm card from Lime Tree Crafts (NEC purchase) This is super quality card.
I then popped on a layer of lilac (or as its for Vi, violet) PMD card, gutted in the middle. On the waste piece, I stamped the Kanban roses stamp (love this stamp) in purple pigment ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I then stuck this piece on the card in the middle and at the height I wanted.
Then I took another piece of white card and cut it slightly smaller than the lilac layer. Out of this, I cut the largest SB Majestic labels 25 die to make a framed aperture. And foam padded this above the stamped image.
Flowers are SB Bitty Blossoms and Tonic Punch daisies, cut from Lidl lilac/purple paper and flourishes and butterflies are from SB Jewelled Flowers and Flourishes.
|Trying a different frame.|
Sentiment topper is the second and third SB Majestic Labels 25 dies and "Vi" is cut from an Xcut alphabet die.
Hope that Vi likes it and that you do too. I also should apologise for the slightly askew photography on the top image.
Hopefully it won't be as long until my next post. I promise I shall try to build up a stash on my next day off.
Meantime, take care folks.
