I want to play...

I am feeling a bit down today as I had to cancel going to Julies technique class :-( and I cant play in my craft room as most of its packed away or hidden behind packing boxes.  We are in a bit of limbo too with the house move - long story so I wont bore you with it - but we should know sometime this week if we are still moving on the 31st May.  Nothing goes smoothly where we are concerned does it?!

Anyway, here is a card I made for one of our lovely team members, Joanne.  I used the gorgeous Tea for Two papers and the Oh, Hello stamp set.


The card blank was embossed with the Hexagon embossing folder and a strip of the Tea for Two DSP adhered to the front.  I cut a small slit in the spine of the card, just long enough to thread the taffeta ribbon through, then tied the ribbon in a bow.

The oval chevron stamp was inked and stamped onto Whisper White card then the Oh, Hello image was stamped over the top but slightly off center.  I cut this out with the Oval Framelits and adhered to the card.  

The flower and chevron images were inked using markers to give me the different colours and then stamped on Whisper White card before being cut out and added to the front of the card.  To finish off I added the Large Basic Pearl. 

I wish I was clever enough to have designed this card myself, but I actually cased it from one I saw at Julies training day in Leeds earlier this year.  We made a lovely matching box for a set of cards and this was one of the cards on show, so if you are interested in attending a full day class to make the box and set of cards, please let me know.  If I can get four people to come to the class I will run it when we move into the new house. 

Well, I have everything crossed for our house move on the 31st, and I promise I will update you when we find out whats happening.  Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend - back to packing for me I think (where does it all come from???).
