Morning everyone! It's Friday and the weekend is finally here. How good is that? I've been feeling so tired the last week and never seems to sleep enough or is it to much? Oh well, I think the old knee is playing games with me and make the sleep a non quality one. Strange as I am not in that much pain during the day, only stiff and it bends the wrong way from time to time but it has been like that before. Oh well, only tired not so much in pain for once. I do love the fall and how I feel then. :)
This is a wedding card I made during the summer. Found out about it early in the summer and thought "great plenty of time and piece of cake". What happens? I wait till the last week and realize I have to make two cards and they are going to the same couple, and of course the same theme. What happens? Everything goes into spinn and the well known scrapper's block decides to move in. LoL Guess if I was pleased when I had finished both cards? I am only showing one here today, the second one I made. As the couple isn't one that likes many details and swirly stuff. I still went with swirls but kept the card simple.
Thanks to my friend Annelie who sent me a stunning birthday card during the summer I got the idea of how to make the folds and get a pocket for money at the same time. Thanks for that. I really was stuck on ideas for this one. I used designer papers from Authentique to make both cards. The collection is called Irresistible Collection. Such high quality of papers. I loved working with them. And try to find a new reason to use them again. The swirly heart is from Stempelglede and is called Swirly Hearts. I heat embossed the heart on faux leader paper that my sons 1-year photos was mounted in before I got it framed. Good old recykling!
This is a look of the inside. The great cut out fitted perfect on the inside and There is a frame to write your personal greeting on. On the inside of the tab have I put some personal info and greeting, but as it's personal you never got to see it. ;) A really simple box to make the card complete was also made. The couple only wished for money for their big day as they want to travel the world, so with the this box it at least looked a little more than just a card with money in it. :)
Long post today. Sorry about that. Anyway, it has been fairly quiet on my blog this week as I have spent quite a lot of time going back and forward with my youngest to the hospital. Two check-ups in the same week for his club feet. But it looks really good so it was worth it. No more surgery as it looks now and no more special shoes more than one more year. We have to keep on working with the stretching of especially his left foot as that is quite stiff. But otherwise, it looks promissing! How great isn't that?
Love n hugs
