Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors
How has your week been? We have had lots of rain. Yesterday was a nice sunny day. The rain is back this morning. I hope we get some nice weather at the weekend. We are off to see my in-laws to help them with their vacuum cleaner. We are going to have some discussions about their garden as some work that needs doing on some trees.
This is the card I have been working on for my father-in-laws 96th birthday.
I do like to make him a card that is a bit different in some way. This time I thought I might try a waterfall card. All the papers used came from a paper pad from The Works.
I made this little underwater scene with a die set that came free with Die-Cutting Essentials magazine. The numbers are John Next Door dies.
This image came from a card in fact it was one that my father-in-law got for his 90th birthday. He had seven cards with this image and I have just used the last one.
This is the waterfall mechanism. I got the idea from die set from Die-Cutting Essentials magazine. I used the die that came with the magazine to make another card. Then I made this with a scoreboard so that I could make it a bit bigger. I used dies from the Nauctical Scenes die set to decorate the panels. The mechanism does work I tested it.
I was quite pleased with how this card turned out. I have plans to make an under the sea card I like the bit in the bottom corner.
Have a great day.
