At least I can look forward to my holidays that are now just approximately 3 weeks away and I can honestly tell you I cannot wait...these holidays I am staying at home and getting lots done, with probably a few small little trips around my home town.
So the other day, my Aunt and Uncle who are currently staying at my Mum's asked me to create 2 cards, both being 40th birthday cards, one for their Son and the other for their Daughter in Law....and with me being sick all weekend with not much energy to do house work, I had lots of time to sit and create...this is the first of the 40th birthday cards that I will share this week.
Taking a piece of white card stock, trimming to size and stamping the Ledger background stamp from Hero Arts inked with Smokey Shadow ink, then taking the Binding Edge punch from Ek Success I punched along the top of the card stock, adding Brushed Corduroy distress ink to the edges of the card stock to give a more adged effect. I then took a horse image from my Silhouette library, resized it and sent it to cut out on my Silhouette Machine on white card stock, colouring the die cut using Brushed Corduroy distress ink. I added twine to the Ledger card stock along with stamping and thickers to create the sentiment, adhering the horse to the ledger and the whole Ledger card stock to a piece of trimmed Earth Designer Paper that formed the card...finally, adding scatters of black pearls to complete the card.
It was so nice to use the Silhouette Machine with no hassels...I am loving it!
Okay so it is time for me to get dinner organised.
Have a wonderful night!
