Hi everyone if my post went out yesterday okay this is my 2nd posting. It's Tuesday morning and just my 2nd day at this.
Before I get to my card today I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Lindyloo for showcasing my cards so often on her web site, and also her encouragement to start this blog.
I would also like to thank Pops for her suggestion on starting a blog too.
My card today is a box I made for my Granddaughter's Wedding Book which I made for her mother to give her. I'm not sure how to upload multiple pics on one posting so I will post the card book on a later posting. Perhaps somebody can advise me about multiple pics.
The box is made with Crafters Companion A3 ivory pearlised card. I worked out the size to fit and 8x8 card myself and then marked the markings on my A3 cutting mat. Then I used some lovely pearlised paper form my local craft shop. I cut out the Spellbinders Parisian corners to go all around the box. Then I added some ivory lace I cut into small pieces with ivory pearls on top. I also used some little organza roses that come on a roll and put ivory pearls on the top. The lace and the organza roses came from Wild Orchid Crafts. The ivory pearls from E bay. I used the Spellbinders Parisian round motifs and scolloped circles for the center and distressed with victorian velvet distress ink.
Before I go I would like to quote a saying out of my little Thank You Book
One can never pay
in gratitude; one can
only pay in "kind"
somewhere else in life.
