I am just about up and able now after the last 2 weeks or so of feeling quite feeble and poorly. I finally went in my craft room on the weekend and just gasped at the mess in there!! I have quite literally in the last month been going in, doing what I have to and then leaving all the mess and debris there! Tonight I will don apron and duster to give it a bit of a spruce up!
So today I thought I would share an Anniversary card I made for a very loving couple that I know. The anniversary was last month but I am only just sharing.
I made the tent style card to fit some envelopes I was given. Then I took a Snippet of card, stamped it with clear versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then took Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Stormy Sea DIs and smooshed over the top until I liked the colour.
I then took the iron out and ironed off the embossing powder. This is one of the only times I actually like ironing!! I trimmed the card to fit and adhered to the background. I stamped a NBUS Hero Arts HA sentiment (I should have stamped it with Archival first on a scrap piece to prime the stamp!) The M&B sentiment is part of a SU set I acquired recently.
Then it was a case of attaching some ribbon, which is much more silvery IRL and was attached to a Christmas present that the recipient of this card gave me!! A little bit of silver twine and some hearts, chomp the corners and hey presto the card was done.
The couple loved it.
Off to share this with the Snippets Playground (card and ribbon). I am hoping the fire is lit as I could do with a warm up!
Thank you Sue for becoming my latest Follower.
Thanks for calling by. Hopefully now that I am feeling a bit better I will feel up to a little more blogging now. Oh, and if BT gives us our internet back! Grrr!
