Where has all the time gone?

Hi my Blog Friends

I can't believe we have already got to January 7th. I haven't had much time to craft during the Christmas and New Year holidays. Hopefully things can start getting back to normal now we are all back to work in our house.

We had some very happy news just after Christmas, two of our close friends announced their engagement. Of course I wanted to make a card for them.

 

This tent card started with  a Kraft card  8" x 8" card  blank.  I  made the pink mat at a friend's house using Distress ink on a Gelli plate one day when we were having a play. I thought it went well with the turquoise paper I had in my stash.


The hearts were cut with a Spellbinders die. I cut and inked two hearts for the background from a patterned  paper which was then covered with a double sided sticky sheet and sprinkled with Cosmic Shimmer Micro Beads.


This is the inside I inked through a mask I had a mat in the middle while I inked  to give an area to write in. All the wording I used was cut with Britannia word dies.

I do hope that your new year has started well and continues as such.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
