Special Request

November 22, 2017

Sorry for being so late posting today but I have been busy.  Firstly we only got home Monday from a few days away with my Mum and Dad at Woodgate, a very beautiful coastal town near Bundaberg in Queensland.  Tuesday I had my weekly class at Beachmere and this morning I had to go shopping, don’t know why my husband thinks we have to eat.  Anyway, after all that I spent some time making this card for my husband to give to a friend for his 50th birthday.  Ron and a few of his mates got together and purchased a framed photo of the Parramatta football team, apparently Scot is a huge fan.  So with a little help from the internet, I put this card together.  He wanted a large card so I created a tri-fold card 7″ x 6″ which gives plenty of room for everyone to sign.  I attached four strips of Daffodil Delight card across Night of Navy card and attached it to scored and folded Whisper White card.   I used my Layering Circle Framelit Dies to cut a circle from the right hand side.  I attached the second double folded Whisper White card inside the first one, so that the fold was on the bottom of the card.  I found an image on the internet, printed it onto Whisper White card and cut it out using the same circle die.  I attached the image inside the circle I cut in the front of the card so that it sits inside the card.  I cut the numbers and letters from Night of Navy card using retired dies and attached them next to the image.  I cut Night of Navy card using the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die and attached it to the middle of the card.  I used my Envelope Punch Board (love how it gives dimensionals for various card sizes) and Night of Navy card to create an envelope.  I punched Daffodil Delight card using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and attached some retired gold Bakers Twine to the back of each balloon before attaching to the front of the envelope using dimensionals.  I tied the ends of the twine in a knot and attached them to the card front using a Glue Dot.  Ron seems pretty happy with the card – I hope Scotty likes it too.

Bye for now,
