RETIREMENT CARD AND BOX

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

 

I was aked sometime ago by my Daughter to make a retirement card for their gardener at her works that was retiring so this is what I made.

 





This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.

I downloaded a photo of a man sitting on a lawnmower from the internet and printed it on photo paper.

The mirri card is Tonic and the base card is Tattered Lace card stock.

I made lots of little 5"x5" size cards to go in the pockets inside, all with images from the Hunkydory Garden Treasures.

Added some John Lockwoods small leaves to finish it all off.

Sentiment computer generated.

FAUX EMBOSSED CARD

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

 

My craft friend gave me a Hunkydory magazine recently as she had been sent 2 of the same magazines now I never buy the Hunkydory ones, but on looking at it I was inspired by a card that used a die for faux embossing.

I had totally forgot you could do this so as I was in a turmoil what to put on my Daughters fiance's card this year I decidded to have a go and this is how it turned out.

 


This is a 8"x8" size card.

I used some dark brown card for my matts and then some Kraft card for the background and the faux embossing.

The Happy Birthday die is a Sue Wilson one.

The gold glitter card used is a snippet and I suppose the faux  embossing is as I used the card stock left over from the matts to do it.

Glitter dots made with a punch.

 

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

GRANDSON'S 18th BIRTHDAY CARD

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

 

Today I have a card I made for my Grandson's 18th Birthday recently.

 



This is an A4 size card.

The bottle die is a John Lockwood one which comes ith the glasses and stars.

I coloured the inside of glasses with watered down distress oxide ink  to look like the champagne and the bubbles was done with stickles.

The Birthday die is a Sue Wilson one and the number die is a Tonic one.

I used double foam tape inside the centre of the bottle after shaping the bottle onthe edge of my desk.

The background is debossed but it doesn't show up on the photo.

RUDOLF DAYS DT CARD ..........MARCH 2022

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.


Sorry I have been missing for a while again I have been away for a short while with my Sister, and her Daughter's and also my Granddaughter.

My Daughter was due to go but caught Covid the day before we were to go, I didn't want to go without her but we had postponed twice before because of Covid lockdown and futre dates would not agree with all of us.

I had a lovely time with my Sister and her Daughters, but caught my Sister's nasty cold off her while there.

We had both had tested negative to Covid before and after when we did our testing a few times after our holiday.

Now I shouldn't grumble as I very rarely suffer with a cold as I take Cod Liver Oil daily.

 

Right on to my post for the 

Rudolf Days Challenge for March over at

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

The challenge runs from today the 25th to the end of the month.

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.

But you can put as many cards as you like in one post.

As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas, and you can win a lovely prize from Maureen if your number is randomly picked out.

My DT cards are quick ones as I lost my Mojo with my cold.

 


The first 2 cards are DL size cards made from 2 A4 card stock.

The second 2 cards were made from the left over pices of card after I had made the DL ones.

The images are from a Hunkydory Christmas book of images.

I used Tinic card stock for the matts and the Peace and Merry Christmas sentiment was a couple of dies sent to me from Maureen for being on her DT.

Thank you for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.
