Neverending 94th Birthday Card

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How was your weekend? We had a quiet one this week. We had some nice meals, walks in the countryside and did some jobs in the garden. We are trying to avoid going to the shops at the weekend when they will be busier. Being retired we have time during the week to go. 

My lovely mother-in-law is 94 in June. I decided I wanted to make her a special card. Recently I treated myself to the John Next Door Neverending Card die set. 

I used the Stencil Sayings dies and the Poppy Head dies to decorate this side of the card. 

The card is folded to reveal this side. I used the Advent Numbers die set and a Crafter's Companion Congratulations die. 

The card folds again and this side is revealed. 

This is the final fold. 

The card will stand up. It is very tactile. You can just keep on folding it. I will make one for my father-in-law later in the year he will be 97. They are an unbelievable couple still living in their own home. They get a little help but mostly they take care of themselves. They have been a real blessing to us. 

I have just realised that I have not left anywhere for a greeting to be written. I will make a small card to tuck in with this one. 

Have a good week. 

Happy Crafting.

Morning Jackie, love this one, great fold, I remember making one many moons ago, it was interesting to say the least but glad I didn't have to make them all the time, I suppose its easier with a die though.xx
