Well, yesterday didn't exactly go as planned. My daughter rang me in the afternoon saying that she needed a card for today. Once I found out the type of things the recipient liked I knew my work would be cut out. We spent the whole evening sorting the card out - don't you just love your kids? lol! Anyway, to save your blushes and my own I'm afraid I can't post the card on here. Let's just say the recipient likes going to 'Gentleman's clubs' - and not the kind real gentlemen go to. Still, at least my daughter thought the end result was 'Fab, Mum'.
I made a wallet card earlier in the day, but as this is being sent to someone who may have found this site, I'm afraid that it'll be a day or so before I can show you that one. I won't spoil the whole surprise, it does contain a lovely Sarah Kay image. So watch this space.
At 11.30 p.m. last night I went into panic mode - what on earth can I put on the site today? It had to be something simple, but they do say that "simple is best" and "less is more". I hope this is true in this case. I promise that tomorrow will be much more interesting. I've had a request for a tutorial on the Trifold Envelope card I produced last week - so I will do that tomorrow.
The items used in today's card are:
A dusky pink/red C6 Pearlised card
'With Love' embossing borders
Stick on gems
Cream textured ribbon
A tip from a disaster
I tried to carry on the theme from yesterday about adding colour to embossing and I had a complete disaster. My tip is, never try to use Cosmic Shimmer with a bit of glue on a piece of embossing because you end up with a smudged effect all around the embossing. I will persevere with this to find a way of adding Cosmic Shimmer, but if you have already done this, please leave me a comment with your tip on how to do it.
My post lady came with a wonderful friendship card yesterday. I was thrilled because it is absolutely stunning. Please check it out at Pauline's site: http://passionforpapercraft.blogspot.com/
Thank you so much Pauline.
Yes, you guessed it, I can now consign my rolling pin back to the drawer. I found a Big Shot on offer yesterday and, as it's my birthday next month, I gave myself an early birthday present. All I wanted to do was play with the machine last night, but my daughter's card got in the way. :o( I promise I won't flood this site with embossing now; I will keep adding different techniques and styles.
