The weather here the past couple of days has been absolutely dreadful but watching the news tonight I realise how lucky we are.....I can't begin to imagine what those poor people are going through...hopefully all my blogging friends are warm and dry.
I had an enquiry last week from a lady who was treating her husband to a weekend in Paris for Christmas BUT he knew nothing about it.....
She wanted the card to incorporate the gift - so she asked me if I could design the card round the trip......
Eeeek - I don't know about you but sometimes these cards
can almost look child-made and didn't really like the idea of making the card with the Eiffel tower in the middle....
A few weeks ago I saw a card that had an envelope on it and wondered if I could do something like that - I can't for the life of
me find the blog where I saw it....
So with all sorts of ideas going around in my head - here is my completed card.......and this is what the lady wrote to me
"Susan, I cried I can't believe it, the card is unbelievable,
fantastic and just so right'
well - I cried too when I read that !!!!
the secret envelope ......
'the tickets' .......with places she wanted to take him
+ the hotel they were staying at
the inside..... (oops - forgot to crop !!)
Backing papers - CD from Craftwork cards
Scalloped Envelope - Sizzix
Stars - Spellbinders
Ticket Die - Whimsey Stamps
Thank you for stopping by.....
