Moving House and Thankyou Cards
There have been so many people that have helped me get to where I am in the house buying process right now. For instance, my mums friend Jackie has given me the most beautiful coffee machine, curtains and a table cloth, the above card you see is for her. I got the idea from one of my tattered lace magazines. I have created a kind of patchwork background by using the tattered lace papers you get with the magazine. I think they are approximately 4cm by 4cm each. I have them mat, layered and embossed a square for the embellishments. To add a little extra luxury I have heat embossed clear embossing powder to make the square look glossy, this will also seal the material. I have finished by adding a few embellishments that I bought from Coleman's.
The above card follows the same style as the previous. However this one is bigger, uses a different colour scheme and is hopefully a little more male friendly. I apologise to all you men out there but you are much more difficult to make cards for. To this card I have also added the new cabin tattered lace die and some ribbon. I hope you like it.
I ATTEMPTED to tell a little story with this card the camper van has actually been placed upon a map of the world and the sunset paper is supposed to symbolise travelling and going off into the sunset.
I will probably give this card to Jake because he has said he will help me move house - PLEASE HELP ME MOVE HOUSE!!!!!! Maybe I should make a card saying this to.
Stay tuned for more Thank you cards because I have a lot of people to thank. I have started providing envelopes, inserts with the cards that I sell and I have also started providing them in professional plastic wallets so that they look more professional. All I need now is a stamp to say that they were made by me :-)
If anyone has any crafty questions, suggestions or artistic ideas please let me know.
Have a happy crafternoon xxxxxxx
