I made this card for my hubby whose birthday it is
later this month.
The backing paper is Laura Ashley and I edged it
with some black sheer ribbon.
The telephone is a die cut of Tim Holtz/Alterations/Sizzix
The telephone is actually cut from the leather of
his old wallet .... well, as I wore it out, I felt it only
right to use it on his card!!!
This one is for hubby's niece, again quite simple.
The red edging is 'Barn Door' Distress Ink.
The embossed Union Jack is from
Portobello Road (tri-boss embossing folder).
The sentiment is also from Portobello Road
'Urban Stamps' set.
The faithful old 'Sewing Room' die was used
again for the sewing form - from
The 'dress' is made from crepe paper.
....... and finally, the special card ......
This one was made by Chloe (my niece)
for my birthday last month.
(It's really bright and shimmery in real life,
but the photo has come out a bit dark).
This was such a lovely surprise as she's based in
on the She-Art girl work of Christy Tomlinson.
(We had a play with that a while back when she made
her own She-Art girl)
I love all the thought and detail she put into it - I always wear
two little clips in my hair and usually wear three
quarter trousers, weather permitting.
The buttons in the background represent things I like -
craft, gardening and cats!
I love the sentiment she used too.
Thanks again Chloe, I love it and it is of course
on display in my craft room!
Thanks for looking xx
