Good morning everyone and a Happy Valentine's Day to you all. Sadly, I'm at work today so have had to forego the breakfast in bed that I'm sure that Mr D had planned (ever the optimist moi!).
I know that you will all have more exciting things to do today than hang around The Pond but I thought I would share my "card" I made for Mr D with you. I say "card" as I felt more like an engineer putting it together lol!
I was originally going to go quite CAS with his card this year but then I got inspired by one of our Janice's and her amazing make here.
Trust me to make more work for myself but heyho.........hope he bloomin likes it now lol!
It looks like the heart at the top is propped against the wall but it honestly isn't. I think Janice used a fork to make the cascade but mine is supported by a double layer of acetate and also a narrow acetate stand at the back. This is because it had to support that large heart which is 4 layers of card stuck together, then double sided adhesive, red micro beads and a laser cut "LOVE"
Red card (PMD)
Red paper (Lidl)
Sissix Hearts dies
SB Bitty Blossoms (quelle surprise and thank goodness I have 2 sets)
Hobbycutz laser cut (coloured in black marker)
Tatty Teddy Alphabet stamps
Black archival ink
Red micro beads
Patience of Job..........optional lol!
Amazingly, this fitted into an A4 envelope, just as it folds relatively flat (the 2 hearts with the stamping on are "hinged" if that makes sense (as opposed to unhinged like me!!!)
Well, that's me for today. Hope you have a lovely day, whatever you're doing and enjoy the week ahead.
Ps......Elaine, I'm guessing your interest in moving in next door is to do with Flash, rather than wanting to share crafty stash, tea and cake with me, but sadly, Brad Pitt he ain't........more like Mad Gitt!
Pps.......has anyone lost blogs from their reading list? I'm sure mine seems to have shrunk.
