... Afternoon all!! Wow, I've had a busy morning - lots of washing to sort out before the holiday break. But while it's drying I've had time to play and make a birthday card. It's a bit vintage, a bit shabby - at least I think it is! I made it using the sketch for this week's challenge at My Favourite Things - MFTWSC102.
Stamps: My Favourite Things - Gift Card Greetings: WMS - Flourishes: Dots & Scallops; SU - Happiest Birthday Wishes; PTI - Grunge Me
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress - Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass, Broken China
Dies: Die-namics - Vertical Gift Card Pocket, Fishtail Layers STAX
Accessories: Kaisercraft Design Paper - Periwinkle; SU - Vintage Brad; Lace from Stampeddlar
I had such fun making this card. I got the Kaisercraft paper a few weeks ago - they are so beautiful, and just right for a special birthday card. Love this gift card pocket; so easy to make with the die. Before folding I added some colour to the inside of the pocket and stamped a pattern - but it's so subtle you can't really see it!! The little tag came in the paper stack - I simply added the date and a pretty brad. Love this pretty lace too. Apart from the sentiment on the gift card pocket, the only stamping is on the panel behind - I shaded with distress inks and added some flourishes. Here's are a couple more photos - one with a card in the gift pocket (not the one that will actually be sent) and one of the inside.
I might not be posting as regularly as normal - it's getting really busy with all the holiday preparations. We'll be spending Christmas with the family in the UK - so I've lots to do before then.
Before I go, I must say thank you to all those who have left such lovely comments recently. I've been very bad in replying - but I read each comment and value them all. Thanks. See you soon.
