It's almost the weekend!
we will have another busy one this weekend - Renee has a cheer competition in The City this weekend and we are signed up to volunteer............... Should be a good busy weekend! Fun Stuff uh?
But for today my friend I am working on a card! I have several thank you cards that I am excited to make!!!! So this card I made for Darrell............. Let me explain.............
When Evan and Darrell made the big breakfast on Sunday Darrell just fell in love with my old looking card that I had made last weekend!
sooooooo I thought I would make his card that way!
ouh yes I made it old looking all right!
I am not totally SOLD on it and I redid a few things on this card along the way!
but it's done and I hope you like what I did!
here we go!
but that was not manly enough and besides I did a tag last time
soooooo you guessed it I changed my mind
ouh I know I am so crazy that way
I changed my mind so many times
so I was gong to try and stack some card stock to make it look like it was a few letters
the old style - they would wrap it with a string!
okay well my first attempt was a BIG FAT fail
but hey do I ever give up??
nope not so much LOL
sooooooooo I decided to take an actual envelope and make it look like it came from the 30's
I also tried my hand at calligraphy
may of worked better if I actually had a calligraphy pen he he
but I am still not really happy with it
so I stamped it with the Sanded background stamp and made it look even older
I also added another little envelope underneath it!
I know I am CRAZY LOL
A Christmas stamp in April he he
but remember I am making this look like a letter right??? that was mailed he he
sooooooooo you bet I pulled out
Winter Post - Stampin Up Stamp I love this stamp!
whow that is super good uh??? LOL
the ribbon I really liked again was just not manly enough
I tore up and inked up
this is a good stress releaver uh?
just have fun and tare away!
but I do think that Darrell will like it
cause it has alot of the elements that he liked from my other card!
oh well I chalk it up for experience right?
cause it's hard to take in all the little details that I put into this card
and since in July they will retire this colour I better use up my kraft stock uh?
here you can see the second envelope that I added
I embossed the Thanks and I put an eyelet with a ribbon
that is all I have for today!
Please share what y'all think
