So I FORCED myself out the office last night, and had a fab creative time.... These cards fell into place....
This card was one I did not expect to have to make. I had just made one for a lovely older gentleman who died and just over 3 weeks later his wife suddenly died, and this has been devastating for the family as she was a very robust, lively woman. The card will go in the post tomorrow. A doily coloured black, one of the new EK success flower punch flowers, and PTI die cut and PTI stamped sentiment. The patterned paper is a small bit left over from the Handmade Hannah Christmas kit, that worked perfectly.
This card is really lovely in the hand, but hard to photograph. I use my fav Spellbinders Die's to cut the snowflake apertures, and then layered some more white snowflake die cuts on the inside of the card and the red background is embossed. The card is simple, but very effective. The best way to probably show you it, is to lay it flat.....
My final card tonight is one that I loved, it was super fiddly, but I was so happy with it all the way till the end, when I suddenly felt it didn't look like what I wanted it to look like. That's what I get for leaving it sitting for nearly 10 days. It was a card made with a challenge in mind, but as I ran out of time, I can show it here!
I know I am using the same die again!!! BUT really this is the only time of year I can get to use it and OMG it just oozes fabulous!!!!!
I cut loads of the snowflakes and glued them into a 3d shape and ran a thin nylon string thru the middle and suspended it on the top of the card. Added a few white gems and ta-daaaa! Instant hanging snowflakes!!! LOVE it, but not sure of the final impact... Probably nicer in my head!
So that's it, one night's work, 1made from start to end, and 2 finished, more nights like that would be great.
Back soon with news!!!!
