It's taking me ages to get through reading all the blogs I follow and it's now nearly tomorrow (23.28) as I type my blog. Made up for yesterday's lack of output and caught up with my good intentions for a change. Also used my hot glue gun without a disaster but it would be hubris to go on about it. I love the hot glue gun but I can and have ended up like Brer Rabbit in the Briar Patch after a session with it. I had to use it today though.
Yes, I made a box. A special box to hold the set of mixed occasion cards I have made as a gift for my daughter for her birthday. I used three sheets of A3 white card, hot glue and Papermania Henbury Lane papers in Sian's favourite colours. I used my Amethyst Promarker to colour the white flower pin to match the colour scheme. Thank goodness for my score board and the strong glue, otherwise this could have been far more tricky!
I made this to reply to my cousin for her invitation to her daughters wedding at Sandhurst Military College. Unfortunately Mr H and I cannot go as we will be in New York celebrating our own daughters' nuptials and our own 33rd wedding anniversary. I am trying to kid Mr H that this is the Martha Stewart Punch anniversary but he says it's the Apple i-Pad anniversary. Sheesh, but he's getting wise to my banter - we've been together so long he knows what I'm going to try to pull!
The card mimics the shape of the invitation that my cousin sent to us and I just punched round the top and bottom and round the insert with my Debbie Moore punch. I used my MS punch to make the red strips. The colour came about because I really wanted to use the spray of red roses so I matched cardstock and ribbon with it. The white card is pearlescent and the card reminds me of my dressing gown, it's the collar!
I made a card for a Docraft challenge too but will post it tomorrow when the light is better. Cheerio for now, it's tomorrow already,
