Good Evening to You All and I hope you are well.
Another gorgeous day here in Inverness, we are most certainly having a much better Autumn than we did Summer.
I didn't expect to be posting anything today, but my friend Dale got in touch last night with a request for a 70th birthday card for her sister and needs it by Friday, no pressure there then I thought, but a challenge is a challenge, so I'm showing it here so that Dale can see it. I spend most of the day making it and a box so that I could get it off in the post, so she will get it in plenty of time.
I had a trawl through Pinterest for some inspiration, and found two cards which I combined, here is the outcome;
I've used a Honey Doo stamp which I bought a wee while ago and never inked up, I found a card on Honey Doo Gallery using this image, and the rocker card is made with SB Dies and this shape was the other card I drew inspiration for, but there was no name, only saying it was pinned from Docrafts.
So thanks to the talented crafters for their inspiration.
Coloured with SN Pens and Wink of Stella, Centura Pearl card to make the card base, Tattered Lace birthday die and a peel off Sister, finished off with a few gems.
The box is made from Centura Card and I've added a big bow.
I have to say that the box almost took as long as the card to make, I am just pants at the measuring, so if anybody has a guide of how to measure I would be so grateful for their help. I have a CC box making board, but it's how much to add in order to make the depth, maybe I'm just a bit dense about these things as I could never do arithmetic.
My photography doesn't do the colours justice, but I'm pleased with it ans hope that Dale will be and Rachel who is the birthday girl.
Thank you all so much for your comments on my last card, very kind as usual.
See you soon,
