Thought I would let you know how our crafty night on Tuesday went. It was great. Kim designed a really cool card for us. It's like a shadow box. Don't have a picture of it yet as I want to distress the paper a little. But I was very happy with how it turned out. We also did our card exchange, which I'll post pictures of soon and some other cards that the gals made for me. Oh... lucky me.
The first card today is the tri-shutter card again. If you remember the challenge was wonderful women. This was all I had so I had to try to make a fancy fold card to make up for the little image. lol We've already discussed how to make this card but the ribbon in the centre. See how it looks wrinkled. I tie my bow and then very carefully apply heat to it from my heat tool. It melts the organdy ribbon and causes it to curl. Be very careful as it doesn't take much heat. On another card I also after it was heated rubbed it into an ink pad to distress the ribbon a little and make it look older.
A little manly card here. Just in time for "Father's Day" It opens at the centre so you have to untie the hemp. Easy to make and then I just add stitching around everything and sponge with some ink.
That's all the excitement in my life today. Must call DS and make sure they are bringing my Grandson for a visit. I think he must miss me!
