Also, yesterday Mike was showing me how to put the awning up, and when I did, it tore off. The fabric was dry-rotted so badly that it felt and tore just like paper! I thought about what I could make out of it on a card! ha ha
So, here we sit until we hear from the dealership about the truck repairs. Mike is supposed to be in Kentucky on Monday for work, Wednesday at the very latest! I hope they get it fixed by tomorrow. I was looking forward to going home today.
I could make some more cards! That's a good idea! I should post the things I have made, so will do that instead while I have internet.
Back to the Card Gift Set and Gift Box...
As I was saying, I like the way the colors came together, and I think my secret pal liked it, but I won't know until our Christmas party in December! he he
|Four Card Gift Set and Gift box.|
I used some sticker edges from the Walmart clearance bin, and punches for the others. I'm sorry I can't list them for you at this time - some of the stamps were purchased at Michael's, Hobby Lobby or Joann's, and I think they are Inkadinkadoo. The red polyester ribbon is from Offray. All cardstock is from Stampin' Up except for the patterned paper, which is from a stack called Mariposa. I used some of the embossing folders, and a Marianne Design Anja Style Template with paper piercing on one of the cards.
I colored all the stamping with Stampin' Up markers in Riding Hood Red, Handsome Hunter, Garden Green, Summer Sun, Brilliant Blue, Brocade Blue, and Black.
The vellum flower was punched with a Stampin' Up punch, and I rounded the ends of the petals with scissors. Two flowers were used, glued together in the center. The center was a punched 1/2" circle by Stampin' Up, and I used a black SU marker to spot the outer ring and color in the center. I then applied flocking to the center in black. I knew if I spent enough time on this post, that I'd remember what the fuzzy black stuff was called, and I did! Flocking!
