…On your special day

Hi everyone,

I made another card tonight incorporating Maya Road fibres, they are nice tweedy colours perfect for September

I took a piece of chipboard and covered the front and backsides with scortape then placed the fibres over top and pressed them down firmly,wrapping around the sides and fixing to the back.

With Sympathy

Hi Everyone,

I needed to make a Sympathy card tonight, and due to working late didn’t get up to my shed until after 9.30pm so I had to get a shimmy on.

I struggle with sympathy cards, and had two go’s to get it right tonight, the first card was ok, but it wasn’t doing it for me and it wasn’t until I went to make an envelope for the first card that the second card just came to me ๐Ÿ™‚

I used a pale blue flocked paper from a me and my big ideas baby boy 12 x 12 stack, there are a lot of real nice papers in it.

I made the envelope out of matching paper and used red line tape to hold it together, given that the paper is so fuzzy.
